Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer Mercedes-Benz Group AG, and MAYBACH Icons of Luxury, collaborated on THE CREATOR sunglasses that are characterized by technical excellence, outstanding aesthetics and innovative creativity. These sunglasses are available in a range of color combinations, including three models with 22k gold plating and two models each with rose gold or platinum plating on a premium titanium base.
THE CREATOR sunglasses are made from ultra-light titanium and sustainably sourced natural horn of traditionally reared Asian water buffalo. A single pair of these shades requires more than 200 steps to be produced. Their shape resembles that of the Maybach logo: the rounded corners of the frames and the flowing aesthetics are emblematic of the most exclusive models. The design of the bridge is inspired by details from the radiator grille. The comfortable spring hinges on the temples are seamlessly integrated into the logo.
The frame of the new sunglasses makes use of the natural horn. It comes from the company IVKO, whose atelier working with natural horn established in 1978, and which is now able to bring its many years of experience to bear in MAYBACH eyewear. The horn used for the glasses comes from Asian water buffalo, which are commonly found in farming communities in many parts of the world and whose strength is an indispensable help in everyday life for the local people. They revere these valuable animals, not one of which has to lose its life because of its horn. Mature horn is best suited for making the glasses – so the older the animals, the more beautiful the horn becomes.
THE CREATOR sunglasses come in a range of color combinations. Some models boast 22k gold plating, rose gold or platinum plating on a premium titanium base. This is found in the logos, the striking bridge design and the trim around the glass. The variants in gold are available in combination with natural horn in the color amber and gold mirrored lenses, in matt black natural horn with dark grey lenses, and in cream/green marbled natural horn with lenses in a subtle green gradient. The rose gold models feature frames made of matt black natural horn with lenses in a grey gradient or frames made of cream-colored natural horn with rose gold mirrored lenses. The platinum versions include a variant in matt black natural horn with lenses in a grey gradient, or one in cream/blue marbled natural horn with silver mirrored lenses. In addition to the red color variant with white marbled horn, there is a black-black combination, which subtly emphasizes the contrasts between the materials and between gloss and matt effects, as well as a variant in black-white-black.
