Athena is spotlighting Gaia, one of the boldest sunglass designs by Sospiri Eyewear, that beautifully wraps an oversized look of glamour into heart-stopping elegance. Serious yet soft, Gaia is defined by thick acetate and angled corners juxtaposed with vibrant pops of glimmering Swarovski crystals.

The edgy silhouette comes in a spectrum of 8 different color options, from sophisticated to daring, including one to represent Pantone’s color of the year – magenta. While Sospiri never does “basic,” the eyewear brand does do classic. For a more classic feel, the Gaia is available in all black, from the frame’s acetate to its crystals. Another one of Sospiri’s versatile color combinations includes pure white crystals on black acetate, a perfect color duet for any staple pair of sunglasses that will elevate your wardrobe.

Staying on trend with the magenta in mind, Gaia also shines in black overlaid with iris and amethyst crystals by Swarovski® and an underlay of violet coloration. Additional color options are deep red with Siam, tortoise with gold, blue with tanzanite and sapphire, translucent platinum with crystal, and lastly, its limited edition color of black with multi-color crystals.

About Sospiri Eyewear:

While some crystal shades may speak to an individual more than others, the one thing that remains a constant is the ultra-femme, unapologetic punch that a Sospiri frame packs. Known for its eye-catching crystal designs and unique shapes, Sospiri remains to be a key player in the luxury eyewear realm. More than just a dazzling accessory, Sospiri has proven to be a functional piece of art backed by historic Italian beauty.

Produced by Ottica Veneta® | Eyewear from the Mountains of Italy, a small and wholly independent US company, the story behind the creation of each frame and inspiration from Venice remains alluring to many. In a world of mass production, Sospiri stands out as a true limited edition production. Not only are the frames solely available through its authorized retailers and 100% handmade in Italy, but also each crystal that adorns every Sospiri frame is inserted by hand. The immaculate detail that the Sospiri collection showcases represents Italian values, from perfect attention to detail to the preservation of quality.
