Construction wise, the acetate frames were developed by hand to obtain the house colours reminiscent of the leather goods lines, the finishes on the hinges have been crafted to form perfect LV initials, and the lenses were given special treatments, photochromy and polarization.
The eyewear is manufactured for Louis Vuitton by optical craftsmen from the French region of Morez, the Jura and Italy’s Cadore region. Available exclusively in the Louis Vuitton network starting March 2010.
