Gucci’s new 3D glasses allegedly improve the 3D viewing experience – beyond personal aesthetics.
“The Gucci 3-D glasses contain a high tech multi-layered mirrored coating which allows the wearer to view themselves in a mirror without distortion. The mirrored coating not only provides a premium look as well as offers superior viewing and contrast enhancement, but also allows over 98 percent of visible light through, therefore not affecting viewing in a cinema environment. An anti-reflective coating has been applied to the back of the lens for additional overall image quality by reducing scattered light, glare and blue light.”
These aviator style 3D glasses will be available at Gucci boutiques this holiday season for $225 USD.

Each piece is hand crafted, hand-painted, and assembled in Portland, Oregon, by the good folks at Shwood.
