….unsuitable for ubiquitous consumption.
Niloca is eyewear for the serious eyewear fashionistas, who paves a path to the highest peak and shouts from it’s summit –
HERE I AM WORLD, TAKE YOUR BEST SHOT!!
Confident, Cheeky and Reassured – never brash, vulgar or uncouth.
Born from a passion for details and a flare for style, Niloca Eyewear is for those who confidently dare and never follow convention.
Designed in Melbourne Australia, from the small inner city bay side village, Albert Park, each design tells a story that will resonate with the wearer. An orgy of colours compliment a mind bending array of patterns, finishes and materials for those who need a cookie trail to exit their walk-in wardrobe. Be lost no more! See the light! And taste the clear air – if you dare.
Made in Australia, France and Japan, our frames carry a strong European design heritage, with an emphasis on skilled craftsmanship. Without the knowledge and passion of the artisans creating Niloca eyewear, many of the intricate designs wouldn’t have seen the light of day. The Australian Niloca Eyewear workshop is one of the oldest continuously owned and operated workshops in the world. Founded in 1963 the workshop is still run by the original owner today, preserving an important part of Australian manufacturing history. Our French workshop is nestled in the Rhone foot hills, the home of fine French eyewear – Oyonnax. While our Japanese titanium factory is currently run by the Great-Great-Great-Great Grandson of the original founder!!
Niloca designs are based on strong Industrial Design principals fused with an Optician’s clout for frame fitting and colour selection. Over 15 years experience is put into every frame design, with some frames taking 4 years to reach production.
We know what serious eyewear people need.
