Kirsten Dunst stars in the new Hollywood film, “The Two Faces of January” as one of the lead roles alongside VIggo Mortensen and Oscar Isaac. Set in Greece and Turkey in the 1960′s, Kirsten plays Viggo’s younger and very beautiful American wife, Colette. Her character has received much attention for its stylish wardrobe, and her main accessory throughout the entire film is the L.G.R sunglass model ALEXANDRIA. According to an interview on Vogue.co.uk, Dunst fell in love with several pieces on set, and tells journalist Lauren Milligan that when production finished “they gave all of us our sunglasses from the movie. I loved mine; they were kind of yellow”.

From the concept, the final design, to the actual frames, L.G.R maintains the authentic meaning of “Handmade in Italy”.

Why do our frames have such a silky finishing to them? L.G.R proudly produces hand crafted eyewear by staying faithful to original artisanal techniques. The Tumbler, a rotating barrel filled with beech and birch wood, is used to smooth down frames made from celluloid acetate. Each frame undergoes a tumbling process of 3 to 4 days before they are hand polished.
