Robert La Roche's tribute to the 1980s: the RLR812 special edition

Robert La Roche is an exceptional Austrian eyewear brand with a rich heritage stretching back to the 1970s.

Even those with little eye for fashion will have noticed the 1980s revival. And as we saw in my post on Thierry Lasry yesterday, the designers are not only using styles from the 1980s as inspiration, they're sourcing acetate from that period to make their glasses look and feel even more retro.

Robert La Roche, with designs now headed by Klaus Huber and Alexandra Giselbrecht, actually found these 1980s acetates "in the basement". 

Twenty or 30 years later, the acetate has become harder, but the colour radiates a new glow.

The RLR812 is available in limited quantities - aptly 80 pairs for each colour.
