GUCCI introduces the new 2015 Havana sunglasses and optical frames combining impeccable workmanship and modern materials, these new frames fascinate with their retro style, underlined by the beautiful spotted Havana colours on bold shapes, recalling an elegant Sixties feeling. Inspired by traditional craftsmanship that has been handed down over the years, these models are distinguished by a skilfully hand-finished treatment, which gives the material a sophisticated look. The beautifully spotted Havana sunglasses and optical frames, in the distinctive yellow colour, as well as in blue, red and brown, merge a vintage taste with a contemporary and subtle Gucci twist.
The bi-color styles are combined together with an innovative handmade gluing process, creating exclusive combinations between the bold Havana upper front and the slim transparent lower part. These sunglasses have tone-on-tone or shaded lenses, or innovative infrared lenses, protecting the eyes from the effects of heat, with a stylish faceted mirror effect. Refined details embellish these styles, such as functional metal rivets, with the minimal metal Web motif interpreted as an interplay of shiny and matt finishes. The dedicated five barrel hinge assures the utmost comfort on the temples, while the photo-engraved GG plaque adorns the temple-tips.
The sunglasses and optical frames come in bio-based acetate exclusively on the black and brown Havana colours: an innovative material that features the same comfort and quality as the finest plastics currently employed by the eyewear industry, but derives a large proportion of its components from natural origins. This helps reduce CO2 emissions from the production process of the material, thus supporting Gucci’s commitment to environmental issues (styles GG3744/S, GG3747, GG1089). The new Gucci sunglasses and optical frames for men and women will be available worldwide at Gucci boutiques and select high-end opticians.
