THE KYME BRAND
The story of the brand Kyme starts as a game, almost a bet, from the mind of an inspired and resourceful optician: Antonello Calderoni. All began with the production of a small sunglasses collection, that mirrors the personal taste of the businessman. Put in the drawers of Antonello’s optical shops, Kyme sunglasses were shyly shown to the clientele and sold together with other famous and established brands. What began as an experiment became a real success: Kyme
sunglasses were much more appreciated then those of his direct competitors in the same range of price and customers target.
The brand Kyme, that comes from the Greek word Kyme, wave, suggesting the idea of energy and movement, was effectively born in March 2013, in Altamura (Puglia), quickly becoming a brand specialized in the design and in the production of high quality sunglasses, with the mission to restyle the evergreen sunglasses models in a more modern and fashionable way. The brand increases day by day its own identity, developed thanks to the high Italian craftsmanship and to the continuous research of new models and designs.
The collection is totally Made in Italy, created thanks to the experience of Italian artisans, to the meticulous style details and to the acetate cellulose by Mazzucchelli, that together with metal, CR39 or polycarbonate or nylon lenses and leather or silk covering make up a collection with countless models and combination of colors, shiny or opaque nuances, mirrored, flash or bicolor lenses. Often in limited or special editions, Kyme is proud of collaborations and partnerships with
important fashion companies.
