Racing frames

De Rigo’s Chopard has launched a new pair of sunglasses inspired by 1000 Miglia

DeRigo Chopard frames
De Rigo has launched special edition sunglasses for Chopard that are named after the 1000 Miglia vintage car race.

The company described the frame as having elegance and strength with a sporty spirit and a racing with style motto.

It is inspired by “the most beautiful race in the world,” which the Geneva-based brand has been an official partner of for 31 years.

De Rigo explained that the frame is designed for the contemporary gentleman who is looking for an ultra-lightweight and comfortable pair of sunglasses that have a sporty vibe and a bold look.

The model has a double bridge that is engraved with the pattern found on the 1000 Miglia watch case. It features a geometric tip with a matte finish and rubberised rings that resemble the mechanical gaskets used in racing cars.
