Designed in Canada and handcrafted in the small city of Sabae, Japan, dutil. eyewear sits with the most prestigious brands in the world. Known for building the most technically-advanced spectacles, the city of Sabae is incredibly selective when it comes to offering brands spots on their production lines. Dutil’s invitation to this exclusive Japanese art form is a huge affirmation of the brand’s superior designs and growth potential.
In each of our frames, our deepest artistic impulses are developed. Our collection of fundamental designs sets a new global standard for obtainable luxury, named the Quintessential series. Dutil took meticulous measures to create premium objects that would be the canvas for a simple and thoughtful composition.
The Quintessential Series offers more than 20 styles, pairing titanium and exclusive acetates with delicate use of color, functionality, and a highly-refined aesthetic. The series tells the story of finding and paving a unique path for one’s self, represented by compasses carved into the custom filigree. The temples depict a half of a compass, underlined by small dots. The compass represents direction; the dots point to the passing of time. On the bridge and very center is a full compass, reflecting symmetry and the process of parallel elements coming together.
The collection is available exclusively at authorized retailers around the world.
