Timeless, handmade eyewear from Italian brand LGR will leave you swooning with summer nostalgia. 

When Luca Gnecchi Ruscone came across a box of vintage sunglasses in a warehouse belonging to his grandfather in Eritrea, he couldn’t help falling in love with the frames. “I didn’t think it would turn into a business,” he remembers. Famous last words. Ten years later, his eponymous brand of eyewear, LGR, features richly colored acetate frames handmade by Italian artisans, with durable crystal lenses to ensure that each pair is as resilient as it is timeless.
