Such is their attention to detail and fantastic overall quality, Dita is a high-end brand I consider ‘the Bentley of eyewear’. Founded in 1995 by Californians John Juniper and Jeff Solorio, and named after the model and Burlesque queen Dita Von Teese, Dita originally aimed to produce really cool sunglasses for surfers. Initially influenced by Cazal, the range has since broadened to include both classic, wearable sunglasses and extravagant, gold-laden frames, the sort of bling associated with hip hop artists and the super rich. Dita have a long-term partnership with Nakanishi of Japan that helped them achieve and maintain high standards of craftsmanship and production. A Dita frame can involve up to 320 stages and eight months to finish. I have styled Ditas for a number of films, including The Two Faces of January with Vigo Mortensen, and Nine with Daniel Day-Lewis. Dita also produce spectacles for the designer Thom Browne. At the peak of contemporary luxury eyewear, Dita keeps the sun from the eyes of Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Lewis Hamilton, Conor McGregor and Kim Kardashian.
