Exclusive lifestyle brand Porsche Design launches the new 2020 sunglasses collection. The range includes the P’8928, the first square-shaped aviator shades with an interchangeable lens mechanism, which is inspired by one of the brand’s most legendary styles, originally designed by Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche in 1978. Another highlight of this season’s collection is the P’8685 Hexagon Gold Limited Edition: highly-engineered sunglasses infused with true sports car DNA and strictly limited to 500 models worldwide.
The P’8478 were the first glasses to offer an interchangeable lens mechanism that allowed the lenses to be easily changed based on lighting conditions. The P’8478 is a style icon recognized for both its functionality and timeless design.
This year, Porsche Design introduces the P’8928 – a modern, squared aviator reinterpretation of the classic with the same unique interchangeable lens mechanism. Each pair comes with an additional set of colored interchangeable lenses, and new lens colors are introduced each season. Exclusively manufactured in Japan, using ultra-light and durable titanium, the frame makes the P’8928 extremely comfortable to wear.
The limited-edition P‘8685 Hexagon Gold sunglasses are inspired by the engine block of a sports car. Eight hexagonal screws hold the solid titanium front in place giving the glasses their bold look.
Each frame is crafted individually by hand and lightweight temples are made of high-performance RXP® and polarized lenses ensure maximum comfort.
Also new are the Porsche Design Fusion models. The P’8366 squared aviator correction glasses and P’8690 sunglasses feature striking contrasts in shape, material and surface. High-performance plastic RXP® meets metal while polished and matte surfaces intersect giving them an edgy and futuristic design.
The sunglasses from the Ultra-Light line utilizes high quality titanium in the frames, while the temples and front are characterized by clear lines and flowing style. With the frame weighing only five grams, they are the lightest and most minimal glasses designed by the brand.
The new collection is available now at Porsche Design stores and online.
