The Diamante pattern comes from the heart of Gucci’s heritage and, translated in a glitter version, lights up the House’s new Spring/Summer 2013 sunglasses and optical frames: a unique capsule collection created for contemporary, sensual and sophisticated women.
This iconic motif is tied to Gucci’s history and dates back to the 1930s, when it was first used on luggage. The distinctive crisscross pattern, which features small connecting diamonds in shades of dark brown on a beige background, became the Florentine House’s first signature print.
This pattern, with its elegant and subtle style, also adorns the new Gucci eyewear collection, which includes six sunglasses and two optical frames, as well as three unique Asian Fit sunglasses. The Diamond Glitter models feature the GG metal logo on the initial part of the temples and come in shades of black/gold, brown/gold, beige/ice, blue/silver, black/silver, Havana/gold, red/gold.
