The new LGR Eyewear 2011 Spring/Summmer collection for men designed by Luca Gnecchi Ruscone combines a variety of hipster, elegant and stylish qualities. The designs of the frames draw inspiration from a trip the designer took with his grandfather to Africa. The collection is inspired by the colonial towns and countries that the two visited; the series of frames for both reading glasses and sunglasses has a colonial and vintage-inspired flair.

Some of the pieces from the collection feature the traditional cat-eye shape that is traditionally worn by women, but the designer intends for them to be worn by men. Each frame is available in a variety of colors and patterns, including black, white and tortoiseshell.
