Porsche Design and Patrick Dempsey, an actor, motorport enthusiast and Brand Ambassador, launch a jointly designed edition of sunglasses and prescription frames. The exclusive and limited edition represent their shared values.
Porsche has always held a special place in my life. Whether as a racing driver or co-owner of a racing team, the brand exudes a special passion and performance for me that I have always felt connected to. This is precisely why I value Porsche Design as a brand for the highest quality and functionality. Now to be actively involved in the design and creation process of an eyewear edition that bears my name makes me very happy and honored. The exchange with the design experts was very exciting and inspiring. – Patrick Dempsey
The Porsche Design Eyewear by Patrick Dempsey Edition includes the P’8965 sunglasses in a black-grey-blue as well as a black-grey color combination and the P’8754 prescription frame in gray-black or gold-black. Designed for everyday use, the edition makes a fashion statement – whether at the racetrack, on the red carpet or in everyday life. The eyewear makes use of an exceptionally high-quality material that embodies pure racing DNA: Carbon.
I have long been fascinated by the carbon fiber components in my Porsche 991 Carrera. They are lightweight, robust, and absolutely reliable. The strength and durability of the corrosion-resistant material also make it ideal for manufacturing eyewear. During a race, driver and car are exposed to enormous forces. Even in the toughest conditions, the driver must be able to rely 100 percent on his material at all times, so I didn’t want to compromise on the quality of the eyewear edition either. – Patrick Dempsey
The newly developed, dynamic eyewear temple is made of carbon fibers, stainless steel and rubber, giving it lightness, aesthetics and an optimal fit. The narrow, sporty temple shape also forms a contrast to the striking front, which is characterized by a double bridge.
The VISION DRIVE™ Polarized lenses or VISION DRIVE™ Polarized XTR lenses provide the best possible vision for dynamic driving as well as for everyday use. The high-end VISION DRIVE™ Polarized XTR lenses also feature an innovative combination of polarization and integrated contour and contrast perception, which offer decisive optical advantages, especially in low sun in the morning and evening hours.
Limited to 1,500 per color variant, the models are available immediately online and from selected retailers. Depending on the lens, the sunglasses are priced at an RRP of 380 to 400 euros, while the prescription glasses are priced at an RRP of 420 euros.
