FATHER$ON FIRENZE

EXTRAORDINARY STORY OF OUR EYEWEAR

We decided to bring a historical and important part of ancient Florence around the world.

We became very fond of these historical designs and of the precious work carried out by the Fondazione Arte della Seta Lisio, a historical foundation of Florence born in 1971 to preserve and hand down the work of the Manifattura di Giuseppe Lisio of 1906 that, with its late 19th century looms, still hands down and preserves the ancient workings of silk. In a whole day only a few centimeters of fabric can be made, but what comes from such a high level of work is of extraordinary beauty and charm.

There is a world to communicate around the history of Florence and we try to do it to make people as passionate as we are.

That's how the EYEWEAR project was born, because we decided to innovate by combining modernity with the original history and we started from an eclectic accessory like glasses, our passion for a long time. Through the eyewear we wanted to create a real "time machine" aimed at bringing the wearer back to ancient Florence.

After a year of research in collaboration with some of the most experienced Italian companies in the field, we were able to create a pair of glasses that bears part of the art of Florentine weaving excellence.

The silk velvets hand-woven with Jaquard looms, with their colors and patterns, stand out and make unique the glasses of FATHER$ON FIRENZE allowing the wearer to feel the beauty of the history of the fabric and feel part of the city of FLORENCE.

We are the first to be able to put the silk velvets at VIVO on Eyewear thanks to the qualities of hand-woven velvets, from the resistance to the softness of the yarn only 100% silk. The master weavers of the Fondazione Arte della Seta Lisio manually warp and cut the silk warp with a cutter creating the velvet pile and solidly and densely woven that will not come off unlike synthetic velvets. An excellence of Made in Italy. Many people do not know that the handmade silk velvet is the only one that was born to last for centuries and resist wear and tear. In ancient times what was made was born to resist time. This is why we at FATHER$ON FIRENZE rely on Italian origins, because we believe in our country and its wealth.

The first two models, the Marzocco and the Tornabuoni, are named after the streets and ancient symbols of Florence. They have been produced in limited series with only 240 pieces per model and color in only two colors, bright black and Havana. Each pair of glasses is a unique piece as well as each piece of silk velvet is different from the other and was made by hand, the glasses are numbered.


THE ORIGINALITY AND CURIOSITY OF THE FABRICS USED

The PALIO Fabric:

This typical design of the sixteenth century was born in Florence and was produced as velvet in different colors


The SCACCATO Fabric:

The pattern is of great elegance that has crossed the centuries without losing its charm, we have proposed it in a version of exclusive limited production by the Lisio Foundation with gold threads, the original design is taken from an original damask of the sixteenth century.


 The MASACCIO Fabric:

This pattern is taken from a drawn line very much in vogue between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, as well as the technique of chiselled velvet, that is, the curly and cut pile that was born and developed in the sixteenth century starting from the Genoese manufactures and extending to those of Turin, Venice and Florence


The RADICA Fabric:

This marvelous and creative design represents an exception, not being an original antique design but a modern reproduction of briarwood, a true test of style in the use of historical Jacquard hand looms by the historic Florentine foundation.


FATHER$ON FLORENCE: OUR MISSION


We create items that are of value, we make them using the best Italian background because we want to bring the beauty of Italy and the city of Florence around the world and on people's skin. When you wear clothes and valuables you feel good and you feel the quality and care of the people who have also worked on it for the pleasure of doing it. This is our Italy.


As in the past, people loved to dress to the highest quality because they considered it an important thing and to feel at their best, we too follow that same belief. We are in agreement with the Italian past that seeks wisdom in manufacturing, so we offer the customer not only novelty and creativity but also the maximum of workmanship in the garments, taking care of every detail in manual and tailoring. We are proud to spread the best of all Made in Italy processing and raw materials.


HOW OUR GARMENTS ARE MADE


We design our garments and accessories following our personal style which is influenced by the city we live in, FLORENCE. The goal is to immerse our interlocutor in the world of Father$on Firenze. A world where elegant Italian spirit and Florentine style are at the fore. The geometries of the garments and accessories and their details are at the highest level of refinement, in contrast to the minimal fashion of recent times. In the past people appreciated the quality and the manufacturing of raw materials for this reason we want to be, through FATHER$ON FIRENZE, a link to the precious past of our country.


The mission of our brand is to make those who wear our garments feel unique, part of a permeating artistic project, aimed at breathing the art of Italian manufacturing revisited in an eccentric key, but still elegant and embellished. This involves time and constancy in research, never settling for continuous improvement, obsessive attention to detail.


For this reason, the realization of our garments and accessories is entrusted to the best Italian companies that have over fifty years of experience in the field. The knowledge of the product, the Italian workmanship and the sartorial attention to detail as well as its development are as important to us as the creativity used to obtain it.

OUR HISTORY


We are a family with a dream to fulfill for us and our children.


During the period of the Covid Pandemic, we decided to focus on us and on our country, Italy, and make the most of it in terms of creativity and production made in Italy. The project was born to realize our dream of Italians who love fabrics and fashion, style, creativity and with a great desire to bring a little of our artistic stylistic vision and the incredible textile knowledge and tailoring of Italian companies to the world. We, as an all-Italian brand, have chosen to invest a lot to keep the manufacturing 100% in Italy, we appreciate Made in Italy and we believe it is important in a period like the pandemic to remain united and as Italians to favor Made in Italy.

We made use of the best Italian productions and sartorial knowledge but we considered it important to innovate using our creativity so we


redesigned the classic lines of knitwear to transform it into a more cult, pulp and fashion garment.


It is important for us to show belonging to our country in our style while we believe very much in learning from everyone by opening up to the world but keeping the strength in our roots.
