​LGR x Diane Von Furstenberg: A Spectacular Fusion of Fashion and Vision

In a world where fashion and functionality often cross paths, the collaboration between L.G.R and Diane Von Furstenberg (DVF) emerges as a beacon of innovation, elegance, and timeless style. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic wrap dress, this partnership introduces a unique capsule collection that seamlessly blends the past's charm with the future's vision. The result? A breathtaking fusion that pays homage to Diane's legacy while charting new territories in eyewear fashion. 

A Tribute to Iconic Style 

Diane Von Furstenberg revolutionized women's fashion in 1974 with her wrap dress, a symbol of empowerment and elegance. Marking its 50th anniversary, LGR collaborates with DVF to bring an exclusive collection that embodies the spirit of innovation and timeless design. This collaboration is more than a convergence of two brands; it's a celebration of a journey, a homage to a fashion icon, and a forward-looking venture into the future of eyewear.

The Capsule Collection: A Visionary Creation 

At the heart of this collaboration are three unprecedented versions of the LGR Raffaello sunglasses. Inspired by Diane herself and meticulously crafted by Luca Gnecchi Ruscone and Diane Von Furstenberg, each model showcases a blend of unique frame and lens combinations. The collection thrives on exclusivity, featuring tortoiseshell patterns reminiscent of a crossword puzzle, alongside gradient photochromic Barberini tempered mineral glass lenses. These designs not only reflect the rich heritage of both brands but also push the boundaries of eyewear fashion. 

Design Details That Speak Volumes 

The collection's exclusivity extends to its intricate design details. Each piece bears the #Wrap50 logo and collaboration emblem, gracefully engraved in gold on the inner temples. This subtle yet powerful marking encapsulates the essence of the partnership, serving as a constant reminder of the craftsmanship and story behind every pair. 

Beyond Fashion: A Commitment to Sustainability 

In an era where sustainability is paramount, this collaboration stands out for its commitment to responsible development and environmental stewardship. Emphasizing a short supply chain entirely within Italy, the collection aims to minimize CO2 emissions, ensuring each pair of sunglasses not only looks good but also does good. The focus on sustainability underscores the brands' dedication to a better future, aligning with modern consumers' values and expectations. 

Packaging With Purpose 

The attention to detail is evident in the packaging as well. Encased in a chic Black Saffiano Leather case, each pair of sunglasses comes equipped with a durable and adjustable strap, allowing for versatility in wear. The case's design, including a magnetic button closure, exemplifies the collection's ethos of blending fashion with functionality. Accompanied by a personalized box, a microfiber pouch, and a cleaning cloth, the packaging reflects the crossword puzzle design, adding an extra layer of exclusivity and identity to the collection. 

A Dream Realized 

Luca Gnecchi Ruscone's personal connection with Diane Von Furstenberg brings an intimate touch to this collaboration. Viewing Diane as a dear friend and an inspirational figure, Luca sees this partnership as the realization of a long-held dream. It's a testament to the power of shared values and admiration, driving the collaboration to new heights and redefining the boundaries of eyewear design.
