In celebration of Porter‘s 50th anniversary last year, the eyewear specialists at Oliver Peoples have teamed with the Japanese label to create a line of travel-friendly foldable sunglasses. Rendered in acetate, with titanium parts in a spectrum of five original colors, the frames are made in Japan from premium Japanese and Italian materials. More importantly, the sunglasses are all folding sunglasses. This being a joint effort with Porter, each pair also comes complete with a Porter-made neoprene sleeve that keeps your precious specs in good nick and makes for easy transport.
Oliver Peoples resurrects the M-4, one of the brand’s original designs that helped launched the brand back in the 1980s. Today, Oliver Peoples is bringing back the M-4 and is handcrafted in Japan just like the original and is detailed with an intricate filigree which wraps around the M-4’s vintage glass lenses.
