Italia Independent beside Juventus to celebrate the 8th consecutive league title

May 20 2019

Italia Independent takes the field with Juve to celebrate yet another record: 8 consecutive league titles in 8 years. "This year, too, my favourite team was the strongest, winning the eighth consecutive championship thanks to men - in addition to players - of extraordinary value. A special thank you to my cousin Andrea Agnelli, founder of this journey upon which, year after year, the Vecchia Signora (Old Lady) is brought to break record after record. In celebrating, we must not forget the contribution of the fans: these are people like me who live on, and for, Juve and who demonstrated their unconditional love in supporting the team during the season. Juve is W8NDERFUL and I, along with my company, am proud to celebrate it once again - to the very end - with a special edition of sunglasses.". Thus said Lapo Elkann, Founder and Creative Director of Italia Independent.

For the 2019 edition, Italia Independent has chosen to customize a best-selling model from the SS 2019 collection in black & white, the symbolic colours of Juventus.

The model has a vintage flavour with a matt finish. The temples bear the I-I logo in silver while the lenses are smoke coloured. Completing the glasses' customization, the inside of one of the temples has the tricolour Shield with the words # W8NDERFUL, while the inside of the other has the words JUVENTUS Campioni D'Italia 2018/2019.

The glasses can be purchased at all Juventus Stores, at the Club's online store, at Italia Independent boutiques, on the e-commerce platform and at the best Italian opticians.
