On January 27th, Louis Vuitton inaugurated their first Maison in Italy, Roma Etoile. Cate Blanchett and French actress Catherine Deneuve were just two of the many who celebrated the iconic fashion line’s historic opening. Twitter followers were treated to exclusive photos of red carpet entrances via live updates @LouisVuitton_IT.
The store is literally set on a cinematic backdrop replete with a dramatic elliptical staircase and a screening room which aims to support the Italian film industry. The location is an old cinema redesigned by architect Peter Marino, famous for his edgy biker style and no less for his awe-inspiring retail stages.
Neil Blumenthal and David Gilboa of Warby Parker have truly made their mark as an alternative, inexpensive and edgy eyewear company. By creating their own designs and selling direct to the consumer, Warby Parker is able to make their trendy frames affordable at less than one hundred dollars per pair.
Their new collection of sunglasses features a collaboration with womenswear label SUNO.
Not only are Warby Parker frames easy on the wallet, but every time you purchase a pair of these specs you are doing good by providing a pair of glasses for someone in need. I’m not sure about you, but I am sold on these!
