Gucci Releases the 2022 Eyewear Collection – Retro-Inspired Silhouettes for Creative People

Gucci 2022 Eyewear Collection

Gucci is all about freedom: the freedom of self-expression, the freedom to wear what you want and do what you love! The Gucci 2022 eyewear campaign boldly demonstrates the House’s core principles, harmonizing timeless heritage and a contemporary edge. The new collection “An Ode to the Open Road” traces an inspiring journey through diverse eras and aesthetics mixing vintage memories with modern touches.

Inspired by music and travel, the Gucci 2022 eyewear campaign immerses you in the atmosphere of the miles and miles covered by musicians during their tours, with their vans and buses becoming a home for months on end. These vehicles are not just transport; they are a place for creativity and rest. Set after sunset, the video and images show a band of characters joined by singer and artist Lou Doillon and actress Ni Ni in the spotlight. The mood of the new campaign is cinematic and enigmatic, the colors are rich, the atmosphere – spirited and mysterious.

A glamorous retro feel permeates the bold silhouettes that perfectly represent the style of the ‘50s with signature rivets, while distinctive elements add refinement and depth to the oversized frames featuring cut-out double G details with gold chains. While wearing Gucci sunglasses and optical frames, the actors possess an attitude of quiet confidence and independence.

Surrounded by instruments in her van, Ni Ni wears oversized square sunglasses in metal enriched with distinctive elements such as the iconic Interlocking G details. Crafted from shiny metal, a removable gold chain infuses the design with a vintage feel. The feminine and bold frame is also available in a prescription model (GG1092OA).

Gucci Retro Oversized Round Sunglasses in Acetate

Offered in two versions (one in tortoiseshell and one in black), these oversized round sunglasses echo styles seen throughout the 1940s, when eyewear design experimented with maximalist versions of the classic round frame. The glasses are enriched with iconic Gucci rivets and a subtle logo detail along the temples.
