Scene by Suzy: Italia Independent comes to Paris
Lapo Elkann serves up a selection of sizzling of sunglasses
7 Июля 2014
The sunglasses are black and cool. Turn up the heat and an animal print seeps into the frame, first hazy, then bold, as the temperature rises.
Rock them on the sizzling beach or at a club rave!
The new Italia Independent store from Lapo Elkann on Rue du Four, Pars is a laboratory of fashion modernity. You can order optician’s eye glasses for 20/20 vision. Or you can invest in shades.
A digital title lights up each section of sunglasses: I-metal thermic; I-thin metal. The lenses glow metallic blue, green gold. The frames are hard and metallic or plush felt. Prices range from 135-185 Euro’s.
Carbon bracelets and a small selection of beach wear – either-sex T-shirts or patterned swim shorts – completed the look. Summer glinting through the Paris rain.
