D'Alva, composed by our friends Alex D'Alva and Ben Monteiro, will go on stage at Teatro Rivoli and CCB in June to celebrate the first anniversary of their debut album #batequebate. Known for its upbeat pop music, D'Alva are big fans of Paulino Spectacles, proudly showing their eyeglasses made in Portugal in concerts and clips.
Alex D'Alva on Paulino Spectacles:
“What caught my attention first was the design inspired by the vintage models, because I always liked old frames. After knowing that the glasses are handmade in a traditional way in Portugal and that each model has the name of a member of Paulino's family, I came to like it even more. Besides having a shape that favors my features, the glasses bridge is well structured and are made with the best materials on the market, making it a lightweight and comfortable frame. The fact of having strong lenses (and frames) is very important for someone like me, who likes extremely physical concerts, and this is why I not only love Paulino Spectacles, but also think they are the perfect glasses for me.”
