PARIS — Bringing a prestigious new eyewear partnership into focus, Boucheron on Wednesday unveiled its first sunglass and optical collection with Gold & Wood in the run-up to the Silmo eyewear trade fair that opens here today.
The pact marks the first license for Gold & Wood, an upscale Luxembourg-based eyewear firm which specializes in handmade frames made from exotic woods, buffalo horn and other precious metals. Boucheron, part of Gucci Group, ended its six-year eyewear license with Italy’s Safilo Group SpA in 2008.
