Bill Barton and Patty Perreira innovated the art of seeing at some of fashion’s most iconic brands. In 2007, these eyewear legends set off on their own journey, coming together to create Barton Perreira. Their vision was clear. An independent brand that sees things differently, taking the time to invest in craftsmanship that produces nothing less than the finest eyewear in the world. Every Barton Perreira frame is handmade in Japan by highly skilled artisans and craftsmen. A rigorous six-to-eight-week manufacturing process focuses on perfecting every detail, from the frame’s foundation to its deep glossy finish. This meticulous process results in beautiful eyewear with an emphasis on finish, feel, and fit. Barton Perreira’s lenses are available in a wide range of material choices including the finest mineral glass, premium polarization, and lightweight, optical-grade CR-39 with anti-reflective coating.
