TAVAT / Riviera / Tortoise
The Guise Archives and TAVAT believe that there is somewhat of a creative combustion that occurs when you place top-of-their game designers, master craftsmen, and expert manufacturers together. Ideas and intent collide and fuse, and something new and wonderful can take form. That something wonderful is the engineering behind the Tactile hinge.
The Tactile hinge is an icon of timeless elegance: simple, functional, beautiful, and as the name suggests: perceivable to the touch. Perfect for someone on the go, this hinge stays closed when wearing folded on your shirt, and also opens outwards for strength. It is the industry's best "Action Hinge". And just like a fine Italian wine, this hinge and it's movement improves with age.
Style should never be compromised. Whether boating around the beautiful lakes or wandering medieval villages, the sophisticated Riviera is an elegant, large-sized sunglass that is a vacation essential.
