The beauty of hand-craft and the motif of scarcity. Both premium qualities that make the products of Sic Gloria items in our wish-lists. Sic Gloria constitutes the venture of graphic designer Lea D. and architect Drew Seskunas, offering a range of hand-made sunglasses accessories - or more likely, style boosters... Sic Gloria, directly meaning 'The Glory of" - a name originating from the renowned Latin phrase 'Sic transit Gloria mundi' included in Thomas à Kempis' ''Imitation of Christ'' and denoting the evanesce of worldly things. Being aware of the spiritual origin of the name given to their project, yet the founders and creators obtained the inspiration for the particular name, from a totally different source that struck their attention and inspired them, as they explain.
The name Sic Gloria was conceived by the couple while watching the film 'Rushmore', in which the particular phrase is used by the main actor. What was attracting for them was the fact that this single phrase manages to simultaneously convey both the joy and pain of life. Consequently, a meaningful name worth be given to meaningful creations.For the fans of limited edition products, Sic Gloria offers a moderate in size collection of hand-made accessories that add a little something to our sunglasses, creating a rather stylish effect. The products are made from superior quality leather coming in the earthy colors of tan, brown and creme with distinctive golden engraved details.
All products are to be used by both men and women, as their retro-like design does not provide any limitations in terms of sex, color-matching or even personal style. Currently, the Sic Gloria collection limits itself to two styles that is the Cap Ferret, that is a standard leather-made sunglasses strap, and the Qualidia design that is similar to the former but longer. They are both available in brown and creme colors through the company's official website. This entry in contemporary design, undoubtedly constitutes a very promising project with room for more products of the existing craft and quality. What is now left, is to anticipate the future ''design glory'' of Sic Gloria.
