A constant search for innovation, the visionary use of materials and a wealth of experience in eyewear design are the defining elements behind Gigi’s collections.
Gigi’s concept of the creative process is the reinterpretation of historical forms, radical experimentation with constructions and an unconventional approach to materials.
HISTORY: GIGI Studios’s history is family, therefore, its expertise comes from an extensive heritage. Patricia Ramo’s grandfather founded one of the first frames factory in 1962 in Poble Sec, the heart of Barcelona. Her father, Luis Ramo, remained at the forefront for 35 years. Just as her father did, she has continued with the legacy up until today.
Patricia Ramo gathered all the know-how from her predecessors and led a total transformation in the company. Luis Ramo was on her side giving support and advice, but she ultimately followed her own ideas. Today, the brand is present in more than than 45 countries. Through an authentic and consistent voice, GIGI Studios stands the test of times.
MATERIALS. GIGI Studios frames are made of noble materials such as natural acetate from Italy and Japan. The presence of cotton provides comfort, malleability and durability.
HANDCRAFT. GIGI Studios looks for tradition rather than mass production. The original drawing made by GIGI Studios designers is the constant reference for the artisans who sculpt the final product. Each manufacturing step is meticulously handcrafted combining both leading technology and the human touch. To GIGI Studios, it’s all in the details. The team supervises all the production phases. More than 100 steps are needed in order to produce each of GIGI Studios frames. Partnering with the best professionals in each specific area, they ensure that frames fulfil their main purpose: comfort, functionality and durability. Reaching the most sophisticated aesthetics is the main purpose of GIGI Studios’ work.
