‘Being independent means writing one’s own story every day’

When New York born Italian entrepreneur and former Fiat manager Lapo Elkann set out to create Italia Independent, he had little clue that the lifestyle and clothing brand would grow to such heights within just eight short years. Now their unique eyewear collection is set to establish Italia Independent well into the next decade. 

Italia Independent, also known as I-I, debuted at the Piti show in Florence back in 2007 and maintains the ethos of its’ namesake in the most honest way possible. Italy is not just where the company works and lives; it is the source of the brands’ inspiration, giving a whole new meaning to the ‘Made in Italy’ matronymic. Their slogan ‘Made in Italy 2.0’ stays true to this ethos; fusing modern innovation, chic European style and classic Italian tradition. 

Using innovative new materials such as carbon blends, Kevlar®, Cordura® by DuPont® and  Gore-tex®, Italia Independent have sculpted  and created eye-catching contemporary frames which adopt Loro Piana cashmere, UV LUX and linen as part of their repertoire, Italia Independent reinterpret classic silhouettes as they go. Their eye for creativity is truly what sets Italia Independent apart.  

The UV Lux frames by Italia Independent have become somewhat of a signature for the brand with their soft, smooth, velvety finish and romantic, luxurious feel.

Their carbon sunglasses – the first ever to be created – have been famously worn by football sensation Edgar Davids whilst their I-Thermic frames have amazing temperature controlled technology that allows the fame to change colour when worn in temperatures over 30C. 

The world’s first luminescent sunglasses were also created by Italia Independent and were shown during Amsterdam International Fashion Week in 2011 which created quite a spectacle – not to mention the cute and quirky I-Teen range which is designed with highly flexible plastic and shape memory for complete longevity and endurance. 

Their passion for changing the face of fashion has led Italia Independent into working with names as Italian football star Allesandro Del Piero, who loaned his expertise for a state-of-the-art sport range Italia Independent. The brand also created frames for pop sensation Lady Gaga in 2010, which contained 4600 black Swarovski elements, handcrafted one piece at a time to create a pair worthy of the new Queen of Pop.

Today Italia Independent is a unique and individual brand which is not afraid to push the limits of technology. Why not write you own story with Italia Independent?
