After a successful career, trading and consulting cellulose acetate around the world, Celestino Pagani decides to start his own business as a cellulose bijoux designer. The adventure begins in a tiny laboratory near Lake Como, Italy. Where he has creative freedom of drawing and crafting very colourful collections of acetate accessories, completely hand made in Italy.

Within the years, thanks to the strong background in the industry and knowledge for the material, he has been capable of creating some unique and exclusive acetate colours in collaboration with the world's leading company Mazzucchelli 1849 , today featured in the current eyewear collection.

2006

The launch of his first sunglasses collection took place, branded simply as PAGANI. All PAGANI sunglasses are hand crafted in our factory in Italy using traditional methods of manufacture in order to deliver a resistant and long lasting product. Most of our frame colours are exclusive and always made in collaboration with Mazzucchelli, since 1849 leading company in the production of cellulose acetate. By exclusive, we mean that each of those colours invented by PAGANI are patented. PAGANI eyewear frames can bend to adapt shape without heating, due to their composition of cured cellulose acetate. Acetate is an unallergic resin, which comes from wood pulp or cotton.Today only the finest Italian eyewear producers use acetate as a frame material for spectacles and sunglasses. PAGANI sunglasses are assembled with CR39 organic lenses, which are made with special treatments such as: IR protection, UV ray protection and anti scratch. It is important to know that any prescription lenses can be fitted on PAGANI glasses, moreover all our sun frames are adaptable to become optical frames.

2016

"From Lake Como to LosAngeles" is the 2016 campaign featuring ordinary people around LA wearing Pagani sunglasses and optical frames. PAGANI has a simple vision; to provide a product of the highest quality that exudes Italian style.

Every piece that we create has edge, and is of the highest quality, but we also believe in offering this quality at a value that our customers genuinely appreciate. We are proud of our ‘hidden gem’ status, but our ambition is to now bring PAGANI eyewear to a wider audience.
