L.G.R. 2016 Spring/Summer Collection

“Some years ago I was in Eritrea, Africa, wandering through my grandfather’s old warehouse of Italian imports, when I discovered a model of sunglasses from a time long forgotten. These beautiful designs immediately evoked the romanticism of an era long gone by: the merging of two worlds, the adventure of Africa and the glamour of the Riviera. I returned to the original manufacturers and created a line capturing this timeless elegance.” Luca Gnecchi Ruscone

The Italian artisanal production of L.G.R is a way of preserving values through the concept of hard work by real people, who have specialized in a meticulous line of craftsmanship in order to achieve excellence. Each frame is the development of one individual who has built it from start to finish, wit with an underlying passion that results in a genuine product.

“This building has been my grandfather’s house and shop, in Asmara, since 1948. It was built by the Italians more than one hundred years ago. On the bottom floor there is the optical store where I found the first L.G.R frames and above is the apartment where I stay when I go to Asmara”. Luca Gnecchi Ruscone
