Viva Group & Gant AB
Viva International Group launches the Gant Eyewear collection worldwide under a licensing agreement with the menï¿½s sportswear brand, Gant AB. The new line, consisting of 28 ophthalmic frames, reflects the essence of the name with styles designed for the 30-something man who demands function and classic good looks. Included are titanium three-piece mounts with screwless hinge construction, stainless-steel styles and handmade double-laminate zyls, all with updated, clean lines and tooled temples with the Gant logo. Colors range from brown, demi-amber, gray and khaki to burgundy, dark green and navy.
Gant has also added women's eyewear to its existing Gant Eyewear line. Designed for independent, confident, active women, this 18-piece collection captures the Gant heritage of sophisticated elegance. Frames are metal, double-laminated plastic and plastic/metal combinations and are offered in variations on oval, rectangular and upsweep designs. Three styles are three-piece mounts.
The sunwear collection follows the design direction of Gant ophthalmics with the updated, clean, classic American styling thatï¿½s at the heart of the Gant brand. Included are 12 sunglasses in four groups: double- and triple-laminate styles with glass lenses; classic metal and metal/plastic combinations with polarized lenses; plastic wraps with CR-39 lenses; and three-piece mount designs with flexible stainless-steel temples and polycarbonate lenses.
