LANVIN OPTICAL EYEWEAR

 

Alber Elbaz just made my life! French fashion house Lanvin has launched its first eyewear optical collection under the artistic direction of Alber Elbaz and in partnership with De Rigo Group, and I can’t wait to get me hands on it. Having recently débuted it’s 2012 Sunglasses Collection, the optical collection fits perfectly in line with the Lanvin style, the new exclusive glasses for men and women successfully interpret the Lanvin tradition with a mixture of both retro and contemporary details. Horn is the star of the collection, the colour palette is rich in natural beige and brown nuances, though also ocean blue hues, which embellish even the classic and timeless black and havana with innovative color combinations. The glasses will be available at Lanvin e-store and all Lanvin boutiques this Spring 2012. Until then watch the video below showing how they’re made – BY HAND!

 

LANVIN SUNGLASSES EXCLUSIVELY AT HARVEY NICKS

Beloved fashion brand Lanvin have decided to launch their first ever eyewear collection exclusively at Harvey Nichols. The line of sunglasses incorporates couture details and industrial aesthetics with a mix of both retro and contemporary features. Horn plays a huge part in the collection, as well as printed leather, crystals and stones. White metal frames feature bronze and gunmetal antique tones. I want at least 3 pairs from this collection but I’m not a millionaire yet! I’ll settle for the round horn frames. Available from Feb 1st from Harvey Nichols prices starting at £235.
