Legacie Unveils New Judith Leiber Dorado Group
Legacie, the luxury house of B. Robinson, has debuted a new Judith Leiber collection, Dorado. The ornate Dorado collection was inspired by the legendary city of El Dorado, the fabled South American land of great riches, gold and gems. Legend tells of a Muisca king who would cover himself in gold dust and then dove from a raft into Lake Guatavita. European explorers sought this city of riches throughout the 16th and 17th century but alas, the legendary city was never found. The collection features three handmade Italian acetate styles with custom Italian faceted stone centerpieces and 80 hand-set genuine Austrian crystals on each frame. The group has two sunglass styles, the JL 1692SG (available in Asian fit) and JL 1693SG, as well as two optical styles, the JL 1694 and JL 1695 (also available in Asian fit).
WooDone Introduces Summer Editions
The Made in South Tyrol brand, WooDone has presented its new sunglass collection with a special Flip-Flop two-color finish. The brand offers the special lacquered finish in two color variations that add color to the frame while maintaining the naturalness of wood and essence of the brand. Flip-Flop is the name of the lacquered finish which, when applied to the wood, gives the sunglasses the cool colored effect. The chosen green/yellow and violet finishes were chosen because they stand out under the light, becoming almost iridescent. Paired with mirrored lenses, each frame is handcrafted from a piece of wood made of eight layers of chipboard (from recycled wood certified as originally coming from trees in Alto Adige). The wood is available in three variations – acacia, cherry and walnut – and weighs just 13 grams.
