Arguably the most successful eyewear company to appear on the world stage in the past decade, Mondottica is a true world citizen.

From humble beginnings, the company now has offices and operations in Hong Kong, London, Paris, Barcelona, Brussels, Venice, Moscow, New York and Sydney with distribution reach that spans all continents.

Our company’s motto – Eyewear Brand Partners – is also our mission statement and taken very seriously.To give each brand in our portfolio the respect and understanding necessary to create collections the brand is proud of, and to place these collections with retailers who are best suited to the brand. To our distribution and retail partners we offer exceptionally interesting brands, innovative high quality products, supported by service and programs that can best assure success.

Design

We design product from the drawing board up, starting with a blank canvas.  Working in detail with our brand partners we create beautiful eyewear that perfectly captures brand DNA resulting in a product that stands alone in both look and feel. Not only do we make truly original designs but we also create materials to match, working with our suppliers to create acetates, finishes and techniques unique to our brands.  Our product reach is global, our relevance local; meaning we make frames that perfectly resonate with each country, thus carving out and retaining our foothold in markets with highly different demands.

Quality

Unencumbered by the limitations and needs of running its own factories, Mondottica has a broad horizon and its product management entrusts its styles to some of world’s finest production houses, in order that all products be maximised to their best potential. Our QA team ensures every millimetre of our product is made to the exacting standards our brands are renowned for.
