Founded in 2010 by Daniel Siberman and Justin Salguero, Illesteva is a lifestyle project inspired by the daily life of a New Yorker. Silberman was interested in design, photography and film from a young age and decided to start Illesteva after difficulties tracking down a pair of shades he liked as much as his first pair, a gift from his grandfather.

Handmade in Italy and designed in New York, the sunglasses combine classic shapes with contemporary, high quality materials. The shades start with hand-mixed and customised acetate (meaning no two pairs have the same pattern), which is inspected by hand to ensure quality and Illesteva standard of excellence. Always seeking to push the boundaries of design, the brand pursues collaborative efforts with some of the industries’ most iconic icons, often looking to outside inspirations to see how they might view the world through Illesteva frames.

Fusing fashion and function, the brand has gained an international celebrity following with Beyonce, Alexa Chung and Sienna Miller all considered fans of the designs. Browse through our selection of this premium lifestyle label and update your accessories collection today.
