The Italian label is collaborating with Space for Giants
A sophisticated special edition by L.G.R for Space for Giants is released – designed to benefit the conservation charity as part of their commitment to protecting the natural landscapes of Africa. The Italian label has created a capsule of four timeless, durable cellulose acetate designs paired with a fine handmade eyewear case made from embossed apple leather – the first time this sustainable material has appeared in their collections.
Asked to comment on the innovative new material, Luca Gnecchi Ruscone told Eyestylist, “We are very satisfied with the sustainable vegan material used for the case: we have received a lot of positive feedback from both opticians and consumers. This eco-sustainable material perfectly embodies the idea of handcrafted luxury that L.G.R wants to represent.” Confirming it will appear in future designs, he added, “In our company there is a great focus on the sustainability of the products used, and we are moving in that direction. We started with the case, but we are already working on the outer box and the cleaning cloth in order to achieve quality standards that respect environmental sustainability.”
The new exclusive collection has been launched for sale on the L.G.R website and in the brand’s stores in Florence, Milan and Rome with a donation of 20% of every purchase supporting Space for Giants’ campaign to save endangered animals.
