The De Rigo Group, a leading name in the eyewear sector, and Twinset S.p.A., owner of the homonymous Italian brand of women's clothing active in the contemporary luxury sector, announce a worldwide license agreement for the design, production and distribution of Twinset Milano-branded optical frames and sunglasses.

De Rigo’s consolidated expertise in the field of design combines with the elegant and sophisticated style of Twinset Milano, to breathe life into a feminine and romantic collection that re-interprets the brand’s stylistic codes with versatile frames sporting refined detailing.

The first collection designed by the two companies as part of their newly-formed partnership will be available from March 2023, by way of the De Rigo distribution network and Twinset Milano boutiques.

For De Rigo, this partnership represents an additional step in the group’s development plan, strengthening and widening our product offering in the women’s segment”.

Alessandro Varisco, CEO of Twinset echoed him: “The launch of the Twinset Milano Eyewear line is an important step, fruit of the collaboration between two companies that share the same values: kindness and respect. The result is a feminine and elegant product, a union that is set to evolve and that will enable both to achieve new goals”, explained.
