“Vanni is a breadth of youthful fresh air wafting among the style vanguard of contemporary designer eyewear,” says Vanni designer Giovanni Vitaloni. “For 20 years, Vanni has represented Italian style and design to the eyewear world. It looks beneath mere appearance to the deeper substance of materials, harmony among shapes and the power of color.”
Vanni offers a variety of colorful, innovative merchandising materials, including posters, postcard and module displays for counters and windows and also has its own magazine published monthly in Europe.
