Wearable technology is here to stay. It means the tech needs to look better and Google Glass definitely needs a makeover.
Google just announced that they will partner with Luxottica. They will put together a team to “design, develop and distribute a new breed of eyewear for Glass,” which Luxottica CEO Andrea Guerra expects to see in stores in 2015
Luxottica already owns eyewear brands such as Ray-Ban, Persol, Oakley, and manufactures eyewear for Prada, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and others.
At the Victoria & Albert Museum Shop you can buy beautifully handmade jewellery by the French Eyewear brand Derome & Brenner. The jewellery is made out of silver and celloluse acetate which most glasses also are made of. Derome & Brenner has collaborated with Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Yves Saint Laurent.
