Double bridge designs

Eyewear designs with a double bridge bring new interest and excitement to frames. Frequently linked to vintage, the latest interpretations  combine echoes of retro, with a thoroughly contemporary mood. There are stylish and smart sunglasses and optical designs from which to choose. Among our favourites is the dynamic Calabar (above) with blue lenses by Luca Gnecchi Ruscone at L.G.R in Rome – its dramatic shape is further enhanced with a stainless steel double-bridge and pince-nez for superb comfort. www.lgrworld.com
