Gucci glasses are the perfect accompaniment to a Gucci wardrobe. The collection shows a meticulous detail and used extremely high quality materials. Due to a growing demand from men, Gucci eyewear has responded with many styles for men and for both men and women. The Gucci eyeglasses collection at this point in time is primarily composed of plastic frames, or metal fronts with plastic temples. The use of plastics offers Gucci designers more ability to infuse color and shape into your persona, because plastics are generally thicker and more visible than the design palette offered through metal frames. Frames shapes tend toward the rectanglular – some with hardened corners, some with rounded corners – as this angularity is repeated in other Gucci fashions. Straighter lines and sharper corners provide a more articulated face shape, which adds to feelings of intelligence, importance, and power.
For example, Gucci 1081 glasses are all plastic, made of the highest quality Italian Mazzuchelli zyl. The frame shape is basically rectangular, but with softened corners. The spotted havana color is higher in tone than the brown havana, but lacks the fiery irresponsibility of a brighter red. Color choices available in plastic allows for this kind of subtlety, a subtlety for which Gucci has become famous.
And then there is the Gucci 1045 glasses frame, which uses plastic temples and a metal frame front. Again, this offers a wide palette for the famous Gucci logo on the side, while providing a more laid back and sophisticated look on the front. The same style is evident in the Gucci 1054 glasses model, the Gucci 3624 eyeglasses frame, and the Gucci 3652eyeglass frame.
Gucci began his small luggage and leather goods business in Florence, Italy in 1921. The brand grew out of its exceptional creativity, introducing timeless standards such as the “Bamboo Bag”, the trademark green-red-green web, and the legendary double “G” logo.
