In light of its first year anniversary, online platform Bombinate announces the launch of its very first capsule product in collaboration with one of its brands. This announcement comes soon after the company’s recent Pop Up Store in East London, and marks its first steps into the physical world – an exciting feat. The capsule product, created in collaboration with The Bespoke Dudes Eyewear, is a custom-made pair of sunglasses.
“Meet the Habanera – a versatile, sophisticated yet relaxed version of one of our favourite frames ever; TBDE’s Crans. Weekend or workday, it’s a beautifully wearable representation of Italian savoir faire.” say Elliott and Massimilano of Bombinate. The product, to be released on Tuesday the 26th June will be limited to 15 pieces worldwide.
Andrea Viganò and Fabio Attanasio’s reputation in the Milanese, sartorially-inclined menswear scene precedes them. Built upon their passion for Neapolitan tailoring tradition, TBDE – a happy consequence of Attanasio’s eponymous fashion blog, The Bespoke Dudes – offers timeless designs with modern twists, always with handcrafted, one-of-a-kind pride. “We’re proud to release this unique model with Bombinate. It’s symbolic of our long term relationship and our shared commitment to quality” says Andrea Viganò
