Gesù Nuovo

The temple cores for this frame style feature the scale reproduction of the diamond- tipped ashlar of Gesù Nuovo Church (XV c.) in Naples.


Inspired by the French architect Claude Parent, a refined dandy and unrepenting rebel, one of the most complex figures in the architectural landscape of the past century. A countercurrent, nonconformist figure in architecture, he authored creations that altered the experience of architectural space. Even though a disciple of Le Corbusier, he was the advocate and theorist of the “oblique function,” which he formulated with the philosopher Paul Virilio. Throughout his career, he was dedicated to rethinking the way humans inhabit space – creating situations of great imbalance – and thus making them aware of their own being. Considered a “utopian” architect, he shaped a methodology that played a significant role for his contemporaries, artists, and great thinkers of his time.


Bio-acetate: the frame is made of bio acetate M49 Mazzucchelli, fully recyclable and biodegradable, without chemical agglomerates to reduce the risk of allergic reactions. Its natural origin is also apparent to the touch thanks to its pleasant, warm, and silky effect.

Frontal frame: the front of our Parent frame style is characterized by the oblique and discontinuous lines that have marked Claude Parent’s creative signature. The upper section of the front draws a cat-eye line reminiscent of the 1950s, reinterpreted with a contemporary flare thanks to the contrast with the sharp lines of the lower section.

Temples: the oar-style temples owe their name to the shape that resembles a rowing oar. The earpiece temple tip is pierced with an “O” inspired by Good’s logo.

Personality: our Parent frame style is ideal for non-conformist personalities, who are open to experimentation and unafraid to leave a mark—albeit with a sort of polemical coolness—as they regard aesthetic experimentation as an adventure before it is an expressive tool.
