ITALIA INDEPENDENT - OR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS ITALIAN LIFE STYLE

ELLA

While browsing any European high-gloss magazine, you would be hard pressed not to find stylish and a wee bit crazy Italian FIAT heir Lapo Elkann. The ever stylish gentleman extraordinaire looks like he just walked out of a fashion shoot, so when we were in Berlin a few months ago and heard that he had launched his own eyewear company we were ever intrigued.

We were just thrilled meeting some of the sweetest and most knowledgable fashion/ eyewear ladies at the ITALIA INDEPENDENT booth at Coterie in New York City a few months later and were so pleased when they sat down with us and wrote our first ( and SURELY not last )  ITALIA INDEPENDENT order! We found lovely shapes in both aluminum metal and acetate and we love how unisex these glasses are! 

We are just THRILLED to have this amazing brand on our website - the glasses are light, beautiful and oh, so stylish! They are unique and help us tell "one's own story EVERY DAY"!
