Luxottica Introduces the Emporio Armani Eyewear Collection

By Deirdre Carroll: Senior Editor

NEW YORK—Luxottica Group has introduced the Emporio Armani Eyewear collection for Spring/Summer 2013.

Staying true to the concept of style that is impeccable but always youthful and fresh, the Emporio Armani glasses are both modern and refined thanks to the carefully designed rubber details and unique finishes. The color range is extensive and includes more sober hues joined by light-hearted and lively pastel and metallic tints combined with mirrored lenses.

For women, standouts include the EA4011, a round sun in an opaque wood effect plastic, while the EA4006 is a feminine style with a ’50s cat eye inspired design in oversized nylon fiber with a double bridge and tubular metal temples.

For men, the EA2003 is a re-visitation of the aviator done in metal and nylon fiber with mirrored lenses and tubular metal temples. More unisex in nature is the EA3001, a rectangular optical style typical of the ’80s but refreshed through a bi-injection process that combines the acetate front and nylon fiber flex temples with contrasting colored rubber inserts.
