The new Giorgio Armani eyewear collection is inspired from eyewear from the 1980s. But these aren’t just reproductions of the original Armani pieces. Armani’s goal was to rediscover the artisan quality of the original collections – bringing back the spirit of the traditional production methods used to make eyewear in the past.
The result is a collection of eyewear that maintains a strong identity linked to how it is manufactured. It is about bringing quality and tradition to the modern product.
