L.G.R announces first sports sunglasses launch, BASE 8

L.G.R announces the release of its first sports sunglasses in partnership with Eugenio Amos designed by Carlo Borromeo. The launch represents new territory for the Italian brand, while preserving the effortless elegance that is a fundamental part of L.G.R’s DNA.

BASE 8 arises from the close friendship between L.G.R’s founder, Luca Gnecchi Ruscone, and the car builder, collector, and race car driver Eugenio Amos, alongside Carlo Borromeo, the creative mind behind the Studio Borromeo De Silva design and technology studio.

L.G.R BASE 8 (A)

This model marks the first time L.G.R employs an 8-Base curve to achieve a wraparound style, emblematic of the brand, thus representing its entry into the world of high-performance sunglasses. Crafted from an injected bio-based polymer, BASE 8 is also the first sunglass style L.G.R is designing with contributions from a creative from outside the company, Carlo Borromeo. Debuting in a limited edition to celebrate this partnership and in conjunction with the launch of Eugenio Amos’ new car design, the Lancia Delta Safarista by Automobili Amos, the centerpiece of this collection is a glossy Havana style complemented by polarized gold mirror lenses.
L.G.R, channelling its technical expertise and elevating its artisanal craftsmanship to new levels, has integrated premium features, from tempered mineral glass lenses offering maximum clarity of vision due to their blend of light-filtering rare-earth elements, to infrared blocking treatments, and even to side air vents reminiscent of automotive designs, along with rubberized temple sleeves and nose pads.

L.G.R BASE 8 (B)

In the L.G.R Spring/Summer 2024 collection, the model is presented in four colour variations: Matte black soft touch with polarized blue mirror lenses; Mirrored black with polarized brown lenses; Matte Havana brown soft touch with polarized red mirror lenses; Matte spotted Havana brown soft touch with polarized blue mirror lenses.
