We couldn't create a California-inspired collection without going to San Francisco's most famous street: Lombard Street.
We liked this curious road, like everyone who visits it, for its peculiar and original zigzag design. The eight curves that make up the causeway are surrounded by flowery and manicured gardens, and our minds imagined all the Californian skaters and skaters who could descend Lombard ST. To practice his moves and improve his technique, and in the wonderful photos that could be taken from both above and below the road.
We were greatly surprised by the fact that a road, completely steep, with a succession of constant and very short curves, along which cars circulate without presenting any problem, has triumphed and is one of the most San Francisco attractions. We were then aware that the limits of creativity and originality have disappeared and that any idea, no matter how impractical it may seem, can be carried out and, what is more, succeed.
Lombard Street helped us, not to come up with random and meaningless design, but to motivate us to innovate and be different, and to trust in the power of good ideas. From this point comes the design of our LOMBARD sunglasses collection, to which we wanted to give several points of inspiration; On the one hand, we wanted to give it an oversize structure and equip it with an aesthetic inspired by the trend of the American models of the 60s. The retro touch seemed necessary to finish giving personality to our models.
We imagine Audrey Hepburn walking up SF's most famous street wearing LOMBARD sunglasses in a black and white setting.
