Roveri Eyewear stands for timeless luxury and performance, with an innovative spirit in working with new and unexplored material combinations. Young entrepreneur and founder of Roveri, Michele Claseri brings his passion for luxury timepieces and fast cars to eyewear following a career that has spanned several years in the luxury automotive and aerospace industries – in Italy and California.
Claseri’s particular expertise in cutting-edge materials has come from his deep knowledge of the development and production of carbon fiber components for automobiles. Launched in Autumn 2019, the brand is already the only independent label in eyewear to work with a carbon fiber material comparable to that used in the highest echelons of watchmaking. The result is a stunning linear pattern and finishing obtained by machining a block of multilayer carbon fiber. The layers of the fiber have to be positioned with expertise at different angles to ensure a perfectly aligned weave.
The first-ever eyewear concept launched by Roveri this season – RV018 – represents an exciting ground-breaking technical innovation for the independent label, developed over the course of the last 24 months. The timeless aviator frame features beta-titanium and multi-layered carbon fiber rings. This extraordinary, refined design is complimented by the highest quality acetate side temples, in a choice of luxury matte gold or matte black, tones which highlight finesse and good taste for all connoisseurs of design.
“Carbon fiber is an incredibly interesting material and with my experience of working with the material in other industries, it has been thrilling to have achieved something extremely advanced and technically precise in eyewear….”Michele Claseri, Founder, Roveri Eyewear
The use of carbon fiber brings a distinctive design to the frame as well as lightness and exceptional comfort and strength. The elegant seamless design of the rings – which are completely screwless – is a technical feat and highlights the linear pattern of the carbon fiber material which has a spectacular yet subtle iridescent marbling effect.
