Sunglasses are a year round thing and it's always great finding new brands that can help you diversify your collection. Everyone's on Ray Ban and Persol, which is totally fine, but when you get ready to actually drop the coin it can't hurt to consider other options. L.G.R makes sunglasses that, in their own words, are "timeless" and "elegant". I couldn't agree more. The collection is pretty stellar and their "Havana" colorway options with green lenses are my personal favorite. In founder Luca Gnecchi Ruscone's own words:
"Some years ago I was in Eritrea, Africa, wandering through my grandfather's old warehouse of Italian imports, when I discovered a model of sunglasses from a time long forgotten. These beautiful designs, immediately evoked the romanticism of an era long gone by. The merging of two worlds; the adventure of Africa and the glamour of the Riviera. I returned to the original manufacturers and created a line capturing this timeless elegance."
