Worlds are colliding. As Apple ramps up to enter the smart-glasses market, the Italians who control the global fashion eye-frames industry are arming up to protect their turf — $102.6B in 2015 and projected to be $165B by 2022 — with all eyes on Cupertino. Paris fashion houses maneuver to reclaim control of their brands, Intel opens their wallet, and Evan Spiegel makes his move.

In this story of intrigue, double crosses, and shifting alliances — from the catwalks of Milan to Silicon Valley; from the military industrial complex to Parisian couture houses — learn of the Mediterranean billionaires and high-tech titans preparing for an epic battle for control of the ultimate interface — your own eyes.

The paper covers M&A activity, known contracts, alliances and potential alliances, biographical information on key figures, as well as a few rumors, opinions, annecdotes and draws conclusions.
