COLLECTIBLE EYEWEAR FOR THE DESIGN CONSCIOUS
Finest Seven crafts limited edition eyewear dedicated to timeless quality and style.
Employing the passion and attention to detail of ancient European artisans, New Zealand-born husband and wife design team Jesse Stevens and Ainjali Fine source the finest components and luxury metals to curate legacy pieces to be worn and loved across generations.
The collection’s vintage-style seven barrel hinges, rolled gold brow bars and bespoke leather cases are constructed in family-owned ateliers in Italy and Spain, before the glasses are given a final quality control check at the Finest Seven London studio.
Each limited edition frame comes numbered, with just 100 frames per colour per style available globally. 100% UV 400 absorbing premium Carl Zeiss lenses, ensure the highest quality of view and protection.
ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
Stevens and Fine have a combined 26 years working with some of Europe’s top artists, fashion and eyewear brands (Miguel Berrocol Studios, Cutler and Gross, Oliver Goldsmith, Victoria Beckham, Prada, Roland Mouret and Alexander McQueen) across Italy and London.
Stevens is a member of the Worshipful Company of Spectacle Makers and has been granted the ‘The Freedom of the City’ (London), one of the oldest surviving traditional ceremonies still in existence today. It is believed that the first Freedom was presented in 1237.
With a background in both fine art and industrial design, Stevens has always been driven to create objects that trigger a positive response in the viewer…and in this case the wearer.
His attention to form and craft collides perfectly with Fine’s decades of styling experience, bringing individual personalities to life through fashion.
The result is a tightly curated series with a modern take on classic aesthetics. Each frame is designed not to complete a look, but to make it.
Collectors of vintage eyewear as well as modern art, Stevens and Fine are passionate about the longevity of quality design and see frames sitting alongside jewellery as deserving of heirloom status.
From the moment you open your Finest Sevens frames’ display box containing Zeiss lens cleaning spray, two luxury cleaning cloths and Italian leather hand crafted in to a beautiful leather case, you know you are the owner of something special, made and designed to last.
