COLLECTIBLE EYEWEAR FOR THE DESIGN CONSCIOUS
Finest Seven crafts eyewear dedicated to timeless quality and style.
Employing the passion and attention to detail of European artisans, New Zealand-born husband and wife design team Jesse and Ainjali source the finest components and luxury metals to curate legacy pieces to be worn and loved across generations.
The name Finest Seven came about in a very simple way, an anagram was made from Ainjali’s surname Fine and Jesse’s surname Stevens, thus creating Finest Seven.
The collection’s bespoke leather cases are constructed in a family-owned atelier in Spain, before the Italian handmade glasses are given a final quality control check at the Finest Seven Barcelona studio.
ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
Fine and Stevens have a combined 28 years working with some of Europe’s top artists, fashion and eyewear brands.
Stevens hand makes ‘made to measure’ frames for private clients and is a member of the Worshipful Company of Spectacle Makers, London. He has been granted the ‘The Freedom of the City’, one of the oldest surviving traditional ceremonies still in existence today. (It is believed that the first Freedom was presented in London 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, Fine and Stevens are passionate about the longevity of quality design and see frames sitting alongside jewellery as deserving heirloom status.
From the moment you open your Finest Seven box, you know you are the owner of something special, made and designed to last.
