Larry Sands for BUGATTI

The creative synthesis between Larry D. Sands and BUGATTI to create eyewear that stands true to Ettore's vision took two years to perfect. Collection One brings together the essence of BUGATTI – the pinnacle of French luxury – with the genius of Larry, a freethinking pioneer in the optical fashion space. To state that Larry is a trendsetter in the optical fashion world would be an understatement; his career, spanning over 60 years, is legendary, having helped shape, create, and execute a wide range of eyewear pieces and collections for the leading fashion houses and eyewear brands.

The nine-style set, comprised of 37 pieces, was meticulously crafted in Japan with some of the most refined and unique materials in the world – including palladium, 925 sterling silver, genuine 18k gold, carbon fiber, and Macassar ebony. The use of carbon fiber and ebony is another splendid design iteration – paying homage to BUGATTI with the red enamel Macaron. An intricate custom wirecore, developed in sheets to mirror the grill pattern that adorns each BUGATTI, forms an exquisite fusion of ‘then’ and ‘now’ on each of the 37 examples. 

Taking inspiration from Ettore Bugatti’s vision – “If comparable, it is no longer BUGATTI” – Collection One successfully captures and transfers BUGATTI’s core values into exclusive eyewear pieces that are at the vanguard of fashion. Materials and manufacturing techniques never seen before in the eyewear industry were developed and employed to create Collection One. The use of Positive Vapor Deposition (PVD) is another key breakthrough for the eyewear industry that’s been first successfully employed during the creation of Collection One. The PVD acts as a Diamond Like Coating, a surface that is highly resistant to wear also used throughout the development and production of BUGATTI automobiles. 

“Everything I do is unexpected, and BUGATTI Eyewear is some of my most unexpected work yet. Expectation is the enemy of Creativity.” – Larry D. Sands
