Founded in 1994, 55 DSL is a fashion and apparel company that
is specifically designed for young, fashion minded people still interested or
involved in action sports, but with a strong focus on urban culture and active
lifestyle. The DSL brand began as a sub-brand
of Diesel and, after five years, started its own independent business in Balerna, Switzerland.
55 DSL Eyeglasses are designed using retro concepts with
contemporary styles and amazing colors.
The street style inspiration captures the spirit and energy of action
sports stars and athletes.
