Gucci Eyewear presents new sunglasses and optical frames for Fall Winter 2014/2015: a sophisticated capsule collection embellished with the precious Diamantissima pattern from the heart of Gucci’s heritage.
Designed for the contemporary and elegant woman, these new eyewear models feature temples with the Diamantissima crisscross motif in a gold plated tridimensional version, the perfect expression of Gucci’s finest craftsmanship and impeccable quality.
Inspired by the Diamante Canvas, an exclusive fabric design tied to Gucci’s storied legacy and created in the mid-1930s, the diamond pattern was first used on luggage. The distinctive crisscross design, which features small interconnected diamonds in dark brown on a tan background, became the Florentine House’s first signature print. This graphic detail, with its elegant and subtle composition, has made its way into a refined collection of jewelry and now onto acetate sunglasses and optical eyewear frames.
This exclusive detail stands out on the classic hues of the frames: black with shaded brown lenses, red with shaded grey lenses, Havana with shaded brown lenses and beige with shaded brown lenses. All models are enriched with a metal interlocking GG logo on the insides of the end tips and a metal plaque carrying the ‘gold plated’ signature on the inside of all right temples. The Diamantissima collection includes two sunglasses and two optical frames, as well as three Asian Fit models.
The Diamantissima sunglasses and optical frames will be available at Gucci boutiques and select high-end opticians worldwide from October 2014. As part of a worldwide eco-friendly program designed to progressively reduce the company’s impact on the environment, Gucci sunglasses feature 100% recyclable packaging with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified paper, while the unique foldable cases minimize stock space, limiting both the weight and amount of shipments and in turn helping to reduce 60% of CO2 emissions. Following the House’s environmental commitment, Gucci eyewear collections include sunglasses and optical frames in bio-based acetate, a special material that contains a higher than usual proportion of natural components, as well as sunglasses made in Liquid Wood, a bio-based and eco-friendly material that represents an alternative to the plastic generally used in the production of eyewear. Liquid Wood is made from bio- based materials: wood fibre from sustainably managed forests, lignin from paper manufacturing processes and natural wax.
