LONGARONE, Italy — LVMH has “the ambition to do formidable things.” And to do so in a very strategic category such as eyewear, the group is banking on Thélios, the joint venture inked last year with Marcolin, according to Toni Belloni, group managing director of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
On Tuesday, Belloni and Giovanni Zoppas, chairman and chief executive officer of Thélios, unveiled the state-of-the art production plant here, a one-hour drive from Venice, and known as Italy’s storied eyewear hub. Manifattura Thélios is already producing eyewear collections for Céline, previously licensed to rival manufacturer Safilo; Loewe, which will debut in the second half of the year, and Fred, to bow by the end of the year.

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
As Zachary Quinto’s impactful run as Harold in “The Boys in the Band” comes to a close this weekend, he tells @leighen , "People have been really connected to the themes and the ideas in the show...It’s also really reflected back to audiences how similar our experiences are today. And I think it also, in a way, transcends gay identity as well.” #wwdeye #zacharyquinto (📸 @jgreenery )
