VAVA invited the triple jump Olympic medallist Patrícia Mamona to develop a transformable eyewear frame CL0016. VAVA’s passion for innovation and keen interest in body in motion is in the origin of this line of modular eyewear, that allows the frame to be adjusted to the wearer’s personal silhouette. The collaborative model won the SILMO d’Or Award in the category of «Jury Special Prize».
THE ATHLETE, THE RECORD HOLDER, THE STUDENT, THE WOMAN AND THE INSPIRATION.
Mamona is the personification of the power of commitment and the will to go beyond what is expected. In Tokyo’s Olympic Games Patrícia Mamona won the Silver Medal in the women’s triple jump and became “part of the exclusive 15-metre club”. In 2021 she also won a Gold Medal in the European Athletics Indoor Championships, becoming a European Triple Jump Champion.
As someone who allies strength with beauty in everything she does, intertwining power and delicacy, Mamona was the perfect inspiration for a frame that, through its dynamic design, enables tone changes from athletic via high fashion through to a more avant-garde aesthetic.
MODEL CL0016, THE FUTURE IN SPORTIVE LOOKS
CL0016 incorporates sustainable, organic materials and the latest in 3D-printing technology. It offers a range of windshields and add-ons in different colours. This versatility is reflected with the model’s interchangeable lenses: one can wear the eyewear as regular sunglasses or as prescription optical frame with a sun protector clip-on. MAMONA sportive frame is available in a limited edition of 200 numbered pieces with over 300 different colour combinations.
Optional windshields are easily affixed to protect eyes from wind and particles. With interchangeable lenses, one can wear the eyewear as regular sunglasses or as prescription optical frame with a sun protector clip-on. Extra add-ons allow full customisation.
