Donavan draws inspiration from its acetate cousin Palmer, bringing together an all time favourite shape mixed with the elegance and minimalism of titanium.
Our Titanium frames are made with beta titanium and are designed to be flexible, comfortable and lightweight, ideal for just about anything life throws at them. All our titanium frames are plated in either gold or silver (yep, real gold or silver using a state of the art technique called ion plating). This technique is more expensive and specialized than traditional water plating.
Flexible: titanium is not only extremely flexible - but it returns to its original shape after bending.
Light: Titanium is 45% lighter than steel - giving it the highest strength-to-weight ratio of all known metals.
Strong: Titanium is known for its high strength and structural integrity, allowing it to withstand the test of time.
Each lens is custom cut just for you. We believe that anti-reflective coating and scratch-resistant coating (also known as multicoat) are necessities, not luxuries. These come at no extra cost on our lenses.
All frames come with a complimentary case to keep your glasses safe from dust and scratches on-the-go. They also come with a soft microfibre lens cloth for when they need a deep clean.

Our German engineered barrelled hinges have been tested to more than 100,000 uses! That’s right, after 100,000 tests they were still working in perfect order. We always use the highest hinge-barrel count a frame will allow to add strength and to ensure your frames last their longest life with you.
Our custom wire cores feature our BN wordmark, face shape engravings or wave pattern (a homage to our coastal roots) and are designed in Sydney, German engineered and crafted in China.
Every Bailey Nelson frame is designed and wear tested in-house in Sydney. Our design vision is to intuitively honour the past whilst provoking the future.
