The brand was founded in 2006, when the Italian founder Luca Gnecchi Ruscone travelled the African continent. He visited an old department store once owned by his grandfather, who lived in Eritrea from 1930 to 1970. During his visit he discovered a box of colonial-style sunglasses that had been imported to Africa from Italy 50 years earlier. Inspired by the elegant design, he brought the glasses back to Italy and tested the market. The demand was overwhelming and thus the brand launched in 2007: L.G.R
Luca Gnecchi Ruscone sought out the original manufacturers for the production of the glasses, thus preserving the traditional craftsmanship of the past, which is still maintained today. All the models are entirely handmade in Italy, making each frame an individual and unique piece of the highest quality. The choice of materials is at the heart of the production process: the best Italian acetate to ensure durable and long-lasting products.
