Handcrafted in Italy, the Vanguard Collection moves beyond the traditional wire core construction of conventional glasses by introducing proprietary acetate lamination methods that allow for innovative designs, material combinations, and unexpected volumes. Our Italian manufacturing partners are the only one in the world that has achieved success in this kind of lamination process, having developed and tested this unique system over the course of several years. This invaluable artisanal experience has led to JMM’s development of a custom “car door” hinge system, as well as the introduction of sculptural temple designs and vibrant color combinations never before seen in eyewear.
