DANSHARI presents the new and exclusive collection with an Armenian Soul

The  DANSHARIAN collection designed by ALAIN MIKLITARIAN
Where Minimalism meets genius
Garni Col A4

It’s called Dansharian and it bears the signature of Alain Miklitarian – the creative genius who revolutionized the concept of eyewear. It is the new and exclusive collection created by DANSHARI, the brand Made in Japan that takes inspiration from the Zen philosophy and the concepts of essentiality, minimalism, and design.

In Armenia – land of origin of the designer – the suffix “IAN” indicates paternity, therefore “son of …”.
Hence Dansharian, a brand born from the collaboration between Danshari and Alain Miklitarian: minimalism meets genius. A collection that combines style and simplicity, conceived and designed by Alain with great passion.
The names of the models represent a real trip to Armenia, among some of Alain Miklitarian’s favourite places which were of real inspiration to him: GOSH, a village perched at 1200m with its 12th century monastery; GARNI, a town of 7,000 inhabitants, with a Roman temple and Roman baths, with green gorges and a basalt canyon; ARENI, where you can taste Armenian wine;


TACHIR, ancient royal city; GORIS and its landscapes refer us to the origins of the world; ARZNI with its thermal springs and SEVAN with its magnificent lake that decreases every year, an extraordinary light over the seasons.

The colours are inspired by Armenia’s nature, climate, and culture. The shades blend naturally with lavender, gold, enamels, and earthy colours: neon green with rusty reds, greys with blacks and champagnes, a dive into the colourful Armenian culture.

Sober materials and colours were chosen for this collection, with flashes of colour that express the joy of living of this wonderful country. Black and white, the perfection of purity, with waves embroidered on the temples and on the front.
Alain Miklitarian plays with colours and shapes, in a precise way, without compromising with fashion, respecting his vision and his idea of eyewear, with absolute consistency.

The laminated temples are made of acetate with a coloured titanium core to capture the light with discretion and delicacy, as it happens in these villages and cities located between 1100 m and 1900 m of altitude. Because Armenia is a country perched on its rocks.

The fronts are sober, classic, with sculpted volumes and corners. Every detail has a precise meaning in Alain Miklitarian’s art.
The collection consists of seven models – six optical frames and one sunglass. Two of the prescription models and the sunglasses are in Limited Edition, in two colour versions of only 222 numbered pieces. The other four frames are available in three colour variants.
Dansharian presents a patent in world premiere, FTS (Flat Temple System), which allows the perfect overlap of the temples without causing tension or deformation.
