Renauld collaborates with Jeffrey Levinson to create unique Sunglasses Case
Renauld are very excited to announce a unique and exclusive collaboration with Jeffrey Levinson, (www.jeffreylevinson.com) the world famous creator of some of the most elegant and iconic clutch bags in the world. Renauld provided a brief to recreate the iconic 'Spectapurse' from 1963 but in a unique and totally new way.
The resulting case is nothing short of astounding in its quality, elegance, and functionality as not only is it a sunglasses case but can also be used as unique clutch bag and attached to the Renauld Chain as a handbag.
Initially the Renauld 'JF' case will be available on special order in 24ct Gold plate, Palladium and other colours to come in the Autumn. Price start at $1700 up to $2500
Jeff Levinson commented
'Partnering with Renauld on the recreation of its iconic "Bikini" sunglasses case has been one of the most exciting projects we've engaged in to date. Our assignment was to honour the form and spirit of the original 1960s Bikini case while updating the design with a JL innovative touch, using the latest in materials and technology and making it large enough to house several Renauld sunglass styles. To work with a true heritage brand like Renauld, with a reputation for setting the pace in global style and fashion on even the smallest part of its modern brand rebirth is a design dream.
Collaborating closely with Renauld, our team have used the same high-performance materials that define the JL brand DNA and are used in our clutches to create a modern case that is lightweight, strong, and exceptionally sleek. It has a seamless magnetic closure, our modern hinge technology, and the JL signature tailored fine leather lining to replace the original satin interior, and as you can imagine, we're very excited about the potential to apply an array of custom and proprietary "JL" colors and finishes to the case to satisfy every consumers' needs going forward. We truly believe this re-designed Renauld case captures the sharp, modern edge of the NEW Era of Renauld sunglasses.'
