Alphonse Gabriel “Al” Capone was an American gangster who attained fame during the Prohibition era as the co-founder and boss of the Chicago Outfit. Capone’s mutually profitable relationships with the city’s police and the mayor’s office meant that he was safe from law enforcement and politically protected. BAENDIT in this edition reflects Capone’s entrepreneurial acumen and business vision.
FRAMES: Silver frames made of new generation in-mould electric welded stainless steel structure with nickel free plating. Hand brushed finishing and laser engraved.
LENSES: Custom S20 White Mirror Revo lenses made specifically for BÆNDIT to work in the toughest of environments and filter out 100% of UVA / UVB / UVC. Made from Thermoplastic Polycarbonate composite for extra strength and durability.
CORE: BÆNDIT alloy core is processed and engineered to reach exceptional reversible plasticity properties. Its ductility and malleability performances allow the core of the temples and bridge to deform, hold position and move back to original when pressure is applied.
HINGES: Each temple and nose bridge piece is hand cut and 4 (temples) to 8 (nose) safety pins are hand welded to the main structure to work as a locking mechanism to the eye frame piece.
CASING: High resistance Silicone-Rubber Elastomer cured and injection molded with the alloy core to be permanently bonded. The Silicone casing provides the elastic capacity to follow the core in the deformation process and has a leading role in the last 5% of returning to its original shape.
