The series of classy LVG absinthe-coloured glass frames is directly inspired by the creative genius of Vincent Van Gogh. The left temple of each frame in the series has been skilfully reproduced by a master cutler, giving it an edge that can satisfy the most demanding. The LVG-001 eye-glass comes with its case and a presentation base.
