DaTE 2019 will celebrate the Orient, with exhibition areas featuring such names as Yin, Yang, Tao and Zen. This will also recall the origins of the event. Founded in 2013, the trade show was indeed named for a movement that was gaining in popularity in Japan at the time, called “DA-TE,” which means “fashion eyewear, without prescription.” The seventh edition of the DaTE eyewear exhibition will take place at Stazione Leopolda in Florence on Sept. 21-23.
