Gucci is one of the world’s most famous fashion houses and the epitome of Italian luxury and class comes in the form of brand’s eyewear. As a leader in high-end luxury for almost a century, Gucci now introduces Web Ribbon Glasses collection. Designed by creative director Frida Giannini in Rome, this eyewear collection adds glamour to any outfit, for any occasion. The main feature of the collection is the web fabric ribbon on the temples, fixed externally by a gold-coloured metallic “GG Britt” logo and internally by a metal plaque bearing the House’s engraved trademark.
The web stripe is one of the House’s most iconic motifs reinterpreted today as a gros-grain detail embellishing this new capsule collection, which initially used on luggage accessories in the early 1950’s, originates from the girth strap used to fix the saddle onto a horse. Since then it has been showcased in countless ways, in a variety of colours, materials and sizes, and has become a distinctive motif of the Gucci collections, perfectly reflecting the House’s historic heritage. The ribbon, in green-red-green and blue-red-blue, has its roots in the art of horse-riding, which has always been an endless source of inspiration for the House.
Gucci Spring 2014 Eyewear Collection includes four pairs of sunglasses and three optical frames, as well as three special Asian fit sunglasses and two Asian fit optical frames. The new web ribbon models come in a variety of shapes – round, square or rectangular – and in a variety of natural tones, such as Havana, white, red, blue and black.
