Commemorating 150 years of Japanese and Danish relations

1710_royal_event_japan_top2.jpg

Last week, Their Royal Highnesses, the Danish Crown Prince Couple, visited Tokyo to mark the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Denmark. On the first day of their visit, the Crown Prince Couple joined an ECCO Walkathon, where the Crown Prince sported LINDBERG eyewear during the 5,7 km walk in support of two Japanese NGOs.


As another part of the royal visit, the Crown Prince Couple lead a Danish business and cultural promotion campaign revolving around the theme: Gateway to the Future. The close relations between Denmark and Japan in both business and culture, is a natural result of a shared passion for quality, innovation and design, which we at LINDBERG consider core characteristics of our identity. 


As the only eyewear brand by Appointment to The Royal Danish Court, LINDBERG took part in the event, and was honoured to welcome H.R.H. Crown Princess Mary for a peek inside the LINDBERG universe.

The dimensions of Denmark

1706_pr_top.jpg

Last week we had the pleasure of leading an exclusive press tour to Denmark for Korean, Japanese and Chinese fashion and design magazines. We gave a selected group of top editors a feel, a view and a taste of Denmark. We experienced Danish culture, nature, cuisine and of course our common greatest passion; clever design and high quality materials. All of which are sources of inspiration for the LINDBERG design team, when developing the eyewear designs of tomorrow. 


This was all in pursuit of understanding the Danish mentality, the Danish "hygge" (coziness) and why the Danes are among the happiest people on earth.

Discreet and understated in Frankfurter Allgemeine

1705_faz_1705.jpg

No more flashy logos and brand names. According to the German newspaper and magazine Frankfurter Allgemeine, the term "less is more" is key when choosing fashionable sunglasses for the 2017 summer season.

Recent years have brought us endless amounts of plastic sunglasses with huge brand names plastered across the sides. But not anymore. The trend this summer is discreet and understated metal frames. A pair of sunglasses should prove its value by its clever design and craftsmanship not by its name alone.  

 

LINDBERG 8402 col. GT

This style from the Danish brand LINDBERG is a good example hereof. The metal of the frame is very thin, which is – by the way – one of the really big trends in sunglasses for this summer. With a very slim metal frame without any lettering, it epitomises the cool, nameless glasses of today.
