Founded in February 2020 by Akshar Patel, BOLD DOTS is a contemporary, unisex eyewear brand. Patel draws inspiration for the collection from his interests in modern and contemporary architecture, Indian culture (where his family emigrated from), and his global travels. The collection is created using high quality acetate from Milan and polished titanium, electroplated in many silhouettes with 24 karat gold. For every pair sold, Patel will donate a pair of glasses and funds for an eye examination to people in rural India.
The core capsule includes three styles: The Madison, an acetate ovular silhouette that is offered in three colors: crystal ($187), island havana ($187), and bengal havana ($196); the Bryant, a rectangular silhouette, with a nose bridge inspired by traditional Indian palatial architectural motifs, that is featured in three colors: black tortoise x gunmetal ($220), bengal havana x 24 karat gold ($200), and jungle havana x steel ($200); and the Jean, a pentagram-shared, pure titanium framed silhouette inspired by contemporary architecture and features three colors: matte black titanium ($210), rose gold titanium ($220), and 24 karat gold titanium ($220).
