L.G.R Sunglasses

Eyewear is not only an accessory to aid or protect one's vision, but an accessory that reflects one's style, elegance, and personality; and why is perhaps the final touch on an outfit.

In times where finding sunglasses and eyeglasses that reflect the 3 aspects mentioned above, with a superior quality, and a design that evokes the eyewear of the 50s and 60s is a difficult task; we have L.G.R Sunglasses.

Founded by Luca Gnecchi Ruscone after discovering some Italian eyewear at his grandfather's warehouse in Eritrea, Africa; L.G.R Sunglasses manages to recreate the elegance of eyewear from a long gone era.

More than a simple pair of sunglasses, these are a work of art. All pairs are hand made using the same manufacturers and techniques that the eyewear belonging to Gnecchi Ruscone's grandfather had.

Besides their design quality, this eyewear stands out from others on the market due to its ultra resistant mineral crystals, their flexibility, and resistance. Since images can't show this 100%, I recommend you watch the following video.

L.G.R sunglasses appeal to those who want to sport a classic and elegant look, to those who want to enjoy life to the highest level.

Currently these styles are available on the market. Frames available on tortoise and black acetate with shapes that evoke classic and iconic eyewear styles. Finding vintage frames can be a difficult task due to availabilty and state of the materials, with L.G.R sunglasses one can wear retro looking eyewear anytime and knowing you're wearing the best of the best.

For their upcoming collection, which will be available soon, L.G.R will be launching the following models.

L.G.R Sunglasses can be purchased online and on stores within more than 10 countries worldwide. For further information on sales points or to view more eyewear please visit their website:

Thanks Mauro! I also think like you that some sunglasses are more than just accesories, they're related to attitude, a lifestyle, a period in time, a small piece of art.
