Solomeo-based fashion house Brunello Cucinelli has unveiled a new eyewear collection in partnership with EssilorLuxottica. This collection, born out of the success of a 2021 capsule collection with Oliver Peoples, is a testament to the brands understated luxury. It offers a range of elegant eyewear styles for men and women, each piece crafted with the utmost precision and care. 

Brunello Cucinelli, Executive Chairman and Creative Director of the fashion house commented: Leonardo Del Vecchio confessed to me one day: Dear Brunello, I dont know whether the glasses we make are beautiful, but theyre certainly made in the best way in the world!Today, admiring the excellent result of such formidable work and harmony, I think back to the words of that gracious, strong-willed, steadfast and kind man, who saw in his Agordo company what he liked to call the beautiful factory”, a little like I do with Solomeo.”

True to the brands philosophy, the glasses are made in Italy by the most skilled craftsmen and women. Leonardo was able to dream and transmit his enthusiasm to those who worked with him, first and foremost to the highly esteemed Francesco Milleri, who with his special and brilliant humanity knows how to establish a relationship of respect and cordiality between our two teams, a measured approach that is the foundation of every humanistic endeavour. The phenomenal product resulting from this heartfelt collaboration represents an outstanding piece of luxury craftsmanship, as well as the Made in Italy that is recognised and embraced worldwide.” Cuccinelli added.

Plato said: Beauty is the splendour of truth. This is why I wholeheartedly hope that our glasses, which are so true and beautiful, will please customers and achieve all the success they deserve.”

The collection features fixed key shapes. The Multimaterico masterfully combine fine materials with highly sophisticated elements with a series of styles that use contradicting materials for a sophisticated finish. The Trama is inspired by the brands high jewellery collections and are specifically for women with an understated colour palette and chic lines. 

The Pattern frames highlight the craftsmanship and meticulous detailing of Brunello Cucinellis handmade creations. The unmistakable pattern is inspired by Solomeos coat of arms and is found on both the titanium and acetate models. Metal details with the BC initials embellish the temple tips.

The Gammae collection is designed for women who embody understated elegance. These strictly ‘Made in Italy’ sculpted acetate frames enhance refined details through very fine constructions. The temples of these exclusive models are embellished with two faceted metal light points, a tribute to the iconic Monile in the Brunello Cucinelli collections.

Available at Brunello Cucinelli stores across the Middle East and globally.
