Trends Under The Sun

L.G.R. teams with trendy A.P.C.

10th May 2012 Eyewear innovator Luca Gnecchi Ruscone of L.G.R. has joined forces with A.P.C., the French casual clothing and home accessories brand, to create a select collection of sunglasses. The frame designs, suitable for both men and women, emphasize true naturalness – no solvents or paints are used in making the frames: everything is hand polished, and fitted with anti-reflex lenses that provide 100% UV protection. Frame shapes embrace a touch of Retro, with a modern air. Beautifully marbled Havana acetate (above style 4231) – my favourite – is paired with brown photochromic lenses.


A.P.C. Style 4225 in black acetate

The classic black model features sporty green lenses. Both styles harmonize so well with the relaxed clothing designs from A.P.C. They have just gone into the A.P.C. stores today! All L.G.R. frames are handcrafted in Italy. JG
