Hally and Son – The history of an artisan with a dream

Hally and Son History

It was 1959 and Mr. Hally was only an artisan with a little glasses shop in London and a dream: leave a mark into eyewear’s world.
Fistrly, he gave life to a limited handmade collection of only 5 pieces, which, however, didn’t receive much success.

So he decided to move, to follow the tracks of the great eyewear artisans; it was in that moment that Mr. Hally went to Italy, the land of the greatest artisans and handmakers.

First thing, he took a round in the big cities, capitals of fashion and of big manufacturers like Turin, Milan, Naples and Florence, to ampliate his knowledge. However, he was not at ease in the midst of big cities chaos, so he decided to settle near Mantova, in a little town called Volta Mantovana.

Here he found his ispiration. As a result, in 1962 up to London everyone had heard about the timless glasses of Hally & Son.

However, some years later, the growing of the english brand, had an hard braking, caused by a malaise of his creator, Mr. Hally.

After that, the brand had a re-born in 2011, when, into the company’s archives, were found some Mr. Hally’s projects, drawings based on the original collection.
Hally & Son started to made some new collections, following the projects of Mr. Hally.

In these new models the principal feature is the maniacal care for details. The hinges are one of these, one with two points and the other with three.
Another detail wich stands out for the eye is the end of the temples, rounded like a button.

Finally, the dream of Mr. Hally is realized: Hally & Son is one of the most recognizable brand of the entire eyewear’s world, a symbol of great artisan culture.
