“One of a kind frames, built by our master craftsmen just for you”
Established in 1946, COCO LENI has a rich history of legendary craftsmanship and elegant design.
Our tailored service begins at the COCO LENI Clinic with a tailored eye test. We then design a frame around the natural characteristics of a person, fit perfectly with their nose, head shape and ears, and lastly at the same moment create a custom-made lens of the highest quality. This combination of tailor-made lens and tailor-made frame offers a unique eyewear outcome.
The very undertaking to make eyewear as a tailor-made piece is a memorable and long-lasting experience.
The method starts with the arrangement of an appointment lasting about one hour. An appropriate style will be chosen at this stage and all measurements will be taken.
Whether it is acetate, buffalo horn, wood or precious metal, a suitable material is selected and, of course, an appropriate colour, shade or mottle is also selected.
Crafted to exact specifications-be that in the material, colour and fit, one can be assured that the eventuality of the personalized experience will be a spectacle that will be cherished and enjoyed for many years to come.
Designs are drawn up and sent to the workshop with as many as twenty-eight distinct measurements mentioned and every detail of the lifestyle and needs of a patron closely considered. Materials are being prepared and frames are being worked on by our artisan team for the next ten to twelve weeks.
At the laboratory, lenses of the greatest quality are prepared and fitted.
In order to observe the fit of the completed spectacles and any changes required in person, a final appointment is preferred. Nevertheless, the required measurements are always taken at our first meeting, in case new frames require delivery without the last appointment.

Material for the frame is chosen with the customer. We then take pictures in the frame of the selected model. These are then sent to the design studio of COCO LENI where it is redesigned accordingly. Specific attention is given to each customer’s brow line and the frame is tailored to give the face symmetry.
Buffalo Horn’s eye-catching and seamless touch is a real wonder to watch. The noble material, never ceasing to amaze with its wealthy colour composition, deep-set granularity and enviable texture, provides a truly unmistakable aesthetic that is unbeatable by any other material of its kind. With incredible lightness and the distinctive ability to mirror your own skin temperature.
Ranging from exceptionally versatile copper/silver alloy, wood, opulent 18k gold is the newest extension of the COCO LENI spectacle range. Realized in countless finishes and blends, there are really vast possibilities.
The building of any single frame takes up to 40 hours by skilled craftsmen, of up to two extra weeks are required to prepare the material. Once our craftsmen have obtained measurements, the design work will start.
Guidelines will be drawn with materials in working condition and the original shape will be cut. Edges will then be shaved to achieve optimal precision and the bridge moulded and shaped according to the contours of the client’s nose. Grooves will be cut into the inner rims of the frame to allow for lenses and rivets suitably pinned to accommodate the coupling of the temples.
Frames will then be thoroughly polished to smooth the contours and achieve the anticipated finishing requirements. Finally, a comprehensive inspection will be performed and checked according to original plans.
