GIORGIO ARMANI 7019-K from Luxottica
Been to any exotic automotive dealerships latterly? The new high-end lux lure with auto buffs is flat paint finishes… and… black dominates that lure. So this Hickey Freeman “suits” up perfectly for the ideal gentleman.

Bon Voyáge with Vera on a classic opti-journey taking in all the “sights” from shape to color.
VERA WANG VA01 from Kenmark
