Valentino’s inaugural optical collection, in collaboration with Akoni Group, is now available in the U.S., marking the brand’s foray into eyewear. Unveiled at Silmo in Paris, the frames reflect creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli’s couture flair, featuring signature studs, logos, and vibrant colors. Crafted in Japan from premium materials such as Japanese acetate, titanium, and ceramic, the collection seamlessly combines high-quality industrial production with meticulous handcrafting.
Akoni Group strategically chose Miami for its logistics facility, recognizing the city’s emergence as a hub for business and trends, particularly in connection with Latin America. The move aligns with Akoni’s focus on the U.S. market and its recent e-commerce platform launch.
