LEISURE SOCIETY X CCCXXXIII // LIMITED EYEWEAR CASE
California heirloom design house, Leisure Society by Shane Baum, known for enhancing the worldly leisure lifestyle through heirloom quality handcrafted eyewear introduces their latest collaboration with bespoke luxury leather goods label CCCXXXIII (‘Three Hundred Thirty-Three’) by Christopher King. Both designers celebrate handmade craftsmanship by co-designing a limited-edition eyewear tray quintessential for travel.
As both Baum and King are committed to heirloom design, the six compartment eyewear travel case is fabricated and hand stitched by classically trained artisans in Italy. Utilizing only the finest quality materials, the exterior of the case is made from exquisite nappa Italian brown leather and armed with durable handles on each side. The nappa leather interior is designed to showcase the CCCXXXIII and Leisure Society logos embossed in gold. The travel case accommodates six frames isolated for safekeeping by ash wood then lined in soft suede compartments presented in Leisure Society’s trademark seafoam green colour.
Chris and I share a passion for products of inherent value. When the sum of the finest ingredients meet master craftsmanship the outcome, whether wine, cuisine, cars, furniture, handbags or eyewear, achieves a level of refinement that is universally applauded and cherished forever. He is indeed a connoisseur with a “keen eye” for detail and an earnest hunger for history, authenticity and manufacturing knowledge. As a side note, he is a quick study and picked up polo faster than anyone I’ve ever seen, a fun activity both our families enjoy “. – Leisure Society Founder/Designer Shane Baum.
I have long admired Shane and his respect for craftsmanship that can be seen through the impeccable product he creates at Leisure Society. We both share a passion for heritage and luxury craftsmanship. Together, we embarked on a journey to deliver the finest eyewear case we could make. It was about really creating something we would be proud to carry ourselves. We anticipate our loyal customer base will appreciate the design and bespoke pieces to complement their lifestyle. “. – CCCXXXIII’s Christopher King.
He continues: “Shane and I have developed a strong friendship based on shared interests and the pursuit of unique quality items in our lives that provoke joy and we are excited to see our first collaboration come to fruition. I look forward to sharing this with our clients and continuing to produce some of the finest products made by Italian artisans”.
To mirror Baum and King’s stance on quality and longevity, the limited-produced case will feature three signature CCCXXXIII detailed gold-plated crown closures designed by Christopher King and articulated by a Firenze-based jeweler to the Vatican. The uniquely designed gold-plated coins adorn the enclosure of the magnetic fold-over leather flap on every eyewear travel case.
The limited-edition eyewear case will be available November 2020 for no less than 1500 USD with your initials embossed on it. Get your mits on one now at select retail stores and specialty eyewear boutiques. How convenient that XMas is just around the corner!
