L.G.R for Antonio Marras - women's sunglasses for 2010

L.G.R sunglasses collaboration with Antonio Marras - Milan Fashion Show 2010

L.G.R is a new brand for me, and what I've seen so far is mighty impressive. Here LGR collaborates with Antonio Marras for in a 2010 women's collection inspired by Africa and the colours of the desert. The lens-frame contrast reminds me a little of my find in Antarctica a week or two back.

Handmade in Italy and like all LGR sunglasses, the lenses are made of anti-reflective, anti-scratch, tempered mineral glass (always a sign of quality) and the frames use a clever material called cellulose acetate which is a little like memory metals but for plastic (as demonstrated impressively in the clip below).

Luca Gnecchi Ruscone started the company in 2007. It has a great optical collection and are definitely one to watch. Much more including an optical collection on the LGR Sunglasses website


  1. Amazing - great collection !

  2. I love wearing designer sunglasses most, But I like WP and the fact that they design their frames in-house. Clearly contacts sell brand names. Thank you technology for making glasses affordable.
