Pugnale Eyewear and Il Ballo del Doge 2019

For the first time in history, Il Ballo del Doge 2019 opens the door to a new and exciting collaboration with one of the most innovative Italian Fashion companies, Pugnale Eyewear, the Italian brand of the prestigious sunglasses and prescription glasses, founded by Emanuele Pugnale, famous all over the world for combining the use of pioneering technologies and a sophisticated and contemporary design, a real jewel of the “Handmade in Italy”.

The first meeting with Emanuele Pugnale a year ago, was a true revelation that made us understand the many unexpected affinities between Il Ballo del Doge and Pugnale Eyewear. The constant creativity search, the desire to bring innovation and modernity, starting from tradition, the sewing methods of production, and last but not least, the challenge to make people dream and provoke reactions moving away from the classical type approval.

The challenge with myself and with the public opinion is what has accompanied Il Ballo del Doge for all these years. All of you that know me, are well aware of how Il Ballo del Doge is my unique way to convey these values and share them with people, the protagonists to whom my work is dedicated.

Since our very first meeting, the path towards the partnership with Pugnale Eyewear has been incredibly natural and easy, a smooth road to heaven. Today is with great emotion that I present you the limited edition of glasses inspired and dedicated to “The Magnificent Ephemeral”, the theme of Il Ballo del Doge 2019.

Here is the special eyeglasses collection “Pugnale for Il Ballo del Doge”!

Il Ballo del Doge 2019 Pugnale Eyewear

A limited numbered edition of only 80 pieces, that Pugnale Eyewear created exclusively for me, with a highly thought-out design, totally handmade with precious materials and innovative techniques, interpreting and summing up the essence of the them of the 2019 edition of Il Ballo del Doge: The Magnificent Ephemeral – in praise of Dream, Folly & Sin.

At the end, isn’t eyewear the contemporary evolution of what masks were in the past?
And aren’t masks the way we use to enhance our own personality?
Eyeglasses, like masks, are the frame to our eyes, the mirror of the soul.

Putting on these eyeglasses everyone can find the personality traits they are more in harmony with, and perhaps a little bit of Dream, Folly and Sin, letting others find out the message hidden behind.


Fashion is a provocation dance, luxury lies in the freedom of the interpretation game with ourselves, like is Il Ballo del Doge, the fleeting moment that stays forever.

Beginning from December 22nd, 2018, the eyeglasses will be available in my shop Boutique Venetia and my Atelier in Venice, San Marco 1286, for all the period preceding Il Ballo del Doge, Saturday March 2nd 2019, until exhaustion of stocks.

It is possible to ask for information and book in advance your eyeglasses “Pugnale for Il Ballo del Doge” writing me at info@ballodeldoge.com

I invite you to check out my boutique starting from December 22nd, 2018 to try the thrill of wearing the luxury of “Dream, Folly & Sin”!
