Born out of the idea of connecting two different cultures, eyewear label Bob Sdrunk has turned into a true insider’s tip. The label’s passion for design and detail are reflected in its range, whilst a vintage touch echoes its Italian craftsmanship.
Bob Sdrunk, who often refers to himself in the third person, personally relishes the influence that two cultures can bring to a collection. He recognises that his roots (an Italian mother and an Australian father) and their two different spirits (one British and one Roman) have has given him a 360° view on different cultures. Completing his studies at the Accademia de Belle Arti in Rome provided him with a detailed insight into evolution in style and design over the centuries. He gained experience across the entire domain of accessories, but his secret love was, of course, glasses!
During a trip to New York, he was struck by a wonderful vintage glasses shop in Tribeca, which prompted, as he describes, a cloak and dagger operation whereby the idea and the first few sketches for his own eyewear collection were developed. The label Bob Sdrunk was born – in one single night. The retro-vintage style became the designer’s trademark, alongside the simplicity featured in his technically-designed eyewear. His glasses have a simple design language, complimented by an unlimited and individual range of colours – a design and form of expression, which is immediately understandable to all.
The brand’s glasses are manufactured in Italy, in close collaboration with experienced eyewear manufacturers. In the Mister Spex Online Shop we offer a large choice of sunglasses to try on and order.
