Luca Gnecchi Rusco Sunglasses

L.G.R Sunglasses
Luca Gnecchi Ruscone travels in Eritrea, wandering through his grandfather’s old warehouse of Italian imports, when he discovers a model of sunglasses from a time long forgotten. Their perfect design immediately evoked the merging of two worlds: the adventure of Africa and the glamour of the Riviera. He returned to the original manufacturers to create a line capturing this timeless design.

In a world-wide preview by colette, you can discover the new editions of Corto Maltese adventures and the Fall Winter 2009/2010 Collection “Hugo Pratt for Corto Maltese”. Window from May 24th.

Here is one of the most original inventions: Le Whif., created by Le Labogroup , a flavoured spray with a first version that tastes like chocolate, fruits and/or spices. It is the ultimate experience of a new food gesture: inhaling chocolate, literally. Perfect to finish a meal, to offer with coffee and to satisfy all our chocolate needs. One exclusive taste for colette: cinnamon chocolate
