GIORGIO ARMANI FW2014/15 Eyewear Collection is a soft revolution. Changing, without ever distorting the rigorous, refined and timeless style of Giorgio Armani. New pieces offer exclusive and unusual materials: flannel, the dominant fabric of the Giorgio Armani fashion collection, and exquisite natural walnut wood. They are both interpreted in amazing and unexpected ways to create iconic frames with refined and sophisticated shapes, with original details such as lime lenses or gold trim. They are masterpieces of craftsmanship and design, which are unprecedented and offer the essence of contemporary luxury. New plays of light are seen on the matte metal that marks the fluid shapes and balanced forms of the Frames of Life collection, with a sophisticated vintage-inspired look.
<AR8041M> - FADE TO GREY
These glasses are daring and revolutionizing the use of fabric seen on the catwalk: gray flannel. Extremely versatile and elegant, the impeccable tailoring fabric entirely covers the frame, rendering it very feminine thanks to the contrasting touch of lime in its lenses and special metal plaque inspired by Giorgio Armani accessories collection. Soft and comfortable, this sun model is extremely pleasant to the touch and has a sophisticated allure and an innovative look. The model, available in gray flannel with lime green or dark gray lenses, is accompanied by it’s own special packaging.
<AR8039> Modern lines are offered for the man who loves contemporary design and timeless elegance, featuring a bold style highlighted by contemporary details, such as the finely engraved metal plaque. Made of exclusive acetates, are complemented by sophisticated tone-on-tone colored lenses. The front and temples offer maximum comfort and ensure their long lifespan. Available in dark Havana brown with brown gradient lenses, marbled green and marbled gray, both with brown lenses.
<AR8044K> & <AR7055K>
Two models have been added to the Frames of Life line, an expression of a natural and never before seen luxury. For the first time, Canaletto walnut wood is used for the creation of glasses, enhancing the excellence of craftsman production of the highest quality. The result is a new, innovative design concept for frames that are masterfully handcrafted, underscored by a lightweight structure in gold plated metal. Clean and perfect lines with a tactile effect create the shape of the iconic pantos front. The temples with their wooden tips are special, with refined profiles with decor that recalls the edge of a coin. The glasses are available in an optical version with brown gradient lenses.
<AR7040> & <AR7057>
These men’s pantos model eyeglasses have a key bridge, clean and rigorous lines and a vague retro look. As the result of a combination of research, technology and design, this model (which also comes in a more squared version, AR7075) is made of advanced materials that provide flexibility and lightness.
The front, which has a thickness of 2.6mm, and the exclusively designed titanium hinge without screws give both frames a weight of only 15 grams. The laser etched logo detail on the outside of the temples, the iconic diamond rivet and Frames of Life logo engraved on inside of the left temple, identify the style as part of the Frames of Life line. Even the color palette is sophisticated, with elegantly faded colors on the front: matte Havana brown, matte Havana green with green temples and matte Havana blue with blue temples.
Manicured details and a particularly feminine design lend a glamorous touch to these squared eyeglasses, made of a special marbled acetate. The hinge recalls the collection of Giorgio Armani handbags and accessories, the temples are enhanced by a metal plaque with the laser engraved Giorgio Armani logo, and temple tips personalized with the initials GA in their small elliptical rivets.
