EU antitrust regulators have suspended an investigation into the $54 billion (£41.2 billion) merger between French glasses group Essilor and Italy's Luxottica after the companies failed to provide requested data.
French eyewear group Essilor said on Tuesday it was confident of securing approval for its $54 billion merger with Italian Luxottica after the EU launched a full-scale probe into its impact on competition.
To mark its centennial, the Italian eyewear label is launching a collector's item. Limited to 200, the handcrafted pairs of Persol's 18-carat gold trimmed aviators will be available at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Chances are your next pair of Ray-Bans or Oakleys could have Intel inside. The world's largest computer chip manufacturer is teaming up with Luxottica, a company that owns some of the world's biggest eyewear brands.
