Lanvin 2012 Sunwear Collection

Lanvin 2012 Sunwear Collection

Singapore, July 20, 2012 – The Lanvin Maison is pleased to present, in partnership with the De Rigo Group, its first men’s and women’s eyewear collection, developed under the creative guidance of Alber Elbaz.

In keeping with the traditional style of the Maison, this exclusive line of sunglasses combines couture details with industrial aesthetics and with a mix of both retro and contemporary features.

Screws, nails and studs are expertly matched with precious materials such as horn, leather, crystals and stones, while metal frames feature bronze or gunmetal antique nuances. The geometric shapes of styles, either round or square, are reinvented in a palette of colors that is particularly rich in contrasts and shades. Havana, black, ivory, grey-green, rust and natural horn streaks are the main hues of the collection.

As the latest couture detail, visible only to the eye of a connoisseur, the collection proposes the Lanvin logo handcrafted by Alber Elbaz and transparently engraved on gradient lenses.

Key themes – Retro Chic Jewels and Industrial Touch.

Models that draw inspiration from the brand’s jewels and accessories with an Art Deco feel.
