There are brands that scream “couture” as soon as you see one of their creation, and Louis Vuitton, the French fashion brand born in 1854, definitely is one of these happy few.
Their amazing craftsmanship and savoir-faire brought the leather maker to become one of the fashion’s leading brands very soon and a total French icon.
At first dedicated only to the making of leather goods, Louis Vuitton then started creating full silhouettes, from clothes to accessories to bags…
Known for their travel and leisure lines – the iconic travel trunks are one of the most desirable Vuitton item! – it is simply logic that the French brand started making sunglasses to go along your travel bag.
With a lot of different shapes – from the most radically modern to the very utterly vintage shape – Louis Vuitton secured their reputation of being a couture brand which knows how to play upon references from pop culture and from their own legacy to offer us clever and edgy, sophisticated pieces of fashion. No more talking: here is my Louis Vuitton sunglasses selection!
Louis Vuitton’s Grease sunglasses 🕶: the ultimate Vuitton signature sunglasses
As far as Louis Vuitton goes, there always has been this signature LV monogram that followed the brand, costing the French luxury giant to be the victim of many counterfeits.
But they never let their signature down and always renewed it to make it an emblem of couture and their very DNA.
These Grease sunglasses by Louis Vuitton are the ultimate ode to their logo and a way to have sunglasses as visibly signed as your favourite Vuitton handbag…
First, let’s tackle the details, starting with the temples. Made of gold metal and engraved with the famous monogram LV, they look very thin and lightweight.
The upper frame is simply a metal bar (aviator-shaped) to which the lenses are attached thanks to metal rivets in the shape of the star nail that also is amongst the Vuitton’s most used designs.
The very peculiarity of these glasses are the lenses: their gradient purple is imprinted with the same print as the classic Louis Vuitton handbags, that is to say the LV monogram and flower-shaped nails. Couture and discreet, yet obviously luxury signed, these lenses are unique.
These Grease sunglasses by Louis Vuitton are the embodiment of the French brand’s ability to respond to the current trendy logo mania and yet do it as they have always done, with taste and elegance.
The aviator shape of the glasses is also very clever: this form adapts to most faces and give something edgy, cool and rock and roll. You can go for these if you are in need for unique and yet easy sunglasses to go with every modern couture outfit.
