Aggressive and playful eyewear that brings the past into the future

Elegant silhouettes with a playful spirit. DITA bases their concepts on vintage designs from the fifties to the eighties with a sporty flair, and their new flagships store has opened in Aoyama. Their classic styles offer a lot to love, but their newer styles such as the SYSTEM ONE are characterized by frames that combine titanium-forged side cups with titanium wire, delivering a powerful presence. The HARIOD line’s intellectual design through simplicity and its antique silver wire and 7mm gold rim leaves a strong impression. If you’re looking for some unique frame designs, take a trip to DITA. You’ll find timeless styles durable enough to last a lifetime.
