L.G.R debuts its first sports sunglasses in partnership with Eugenio Amos designed by Carlo Borromeo
Marking the first time L.G.R creates performance eyewear, uses an 8-base curve and opens its design atelier to an outside creative, these glasses are meant to #ElevateYourGame
L.G.R is venturing into uncharted territory with its first sports-geared model of performance-heavy sunglasses retaining the effortless elegance integral to the brand’s DNA.
BASE 8 stems from the friendship between L.G.R’s founder Luca Gnecchi Ruscone with car builder, collector and race car driver Eugenio Amos and Carlo Borromeo, the creative force behind the Studio Borromeo De Silva design and technology studio
BASE 8 marks the first time that L.G.R employs an 8-base curve to achieve the wraparound, enveloping style emblematic of the model, the model, representing the brand’s foray into performance-imbued sunglasses.
Debuting in a Limited Edition to celebrate the partnership and in tandem with the launch of Eugenio Amos’ latest car design, the Lancia Delta Safarista by Automobili Amos, the hero piece is a glossy Havana style complemented by polarized gold mirror lenses.
Channeling its technical know-how and pushing its artisanal craftsmanship to new heights, L.G.R has embedded premium features, from tempered mineral glass lenses to offer the sharpest clarity of vision thanks to their mix of light-filtering rare-earth elements, to infrared blocking treatments, side air vents reminiscent of car designs and rubberized temple sleeves and nose pads.
