Known for its constant innovation in fabric and design, Italian brand Stone Island is now making a move into eyewear and will be introducing its first collection soon. In collaboration with EG Brand, Stone Island developed a limited edition collection of sunglasses, with a clear release date not announced yet.
“Carlo Rivetti, Stone Island’s creative director and president, worked with EG Brands on the line, which will offer modern interpretations of iconic eyewear designs. Only 400 pairs will be produced and they will all be made in Italy and offer lenses from Carl Zeiss Vision.
The glasses will offer carbon fiber rims and are available in four colors — black, green, blue and red — which were created by using colored pigments suspended in transparent resin, leaving the texture of the carbon fiber visible. The retail prices have not been determined.
The collection will be sold at opticians, in Stone Island stores and in selected multibrand apparel stores.”
