Safilo Celebrates Its 80th Annivarsary With New Limited Edition Sunglasses Inspired By Those of “Peggy Guggenheim” And With An Exclusive Event

Safilo celebrates its 80th anniversary by launching a new limited edition inspired by the legendary glasses once worn by Peggy Guggenheim (1898-1979), renowned collector of 20th century European avant-garde art, who discovered some of the greatest American artists of her time. These Surrealist-inspired glasses are a new take on the celebrated model created for Peggy by American artist and friend Edward Melcarth. Safilo had already drawn inspiration from these eccentric sunglasses in 1994, when it first produced and distributed its Peggy Guggenheim model, which was on sale at the museum’s shops. For this special anniversary, Safilo is launching a unique, limited edition model, which will be on sale solely at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice. Moreover, an exclusive event, Safilo’s 80th anniversary celebration, will be held in the museum’s gardens on September 4, 2014. The revisited sunglasses stay close to the original design, giving them a more contemporary look, with their iconic blue butterfly-eye acetate frame comes with tone-on-tone mirrored lenses, with contrasting profiles in shades of brown, endowing them with romantic evocations of reflections on the Venetian lagoon.
