Stockholm-based brand Monokel Eyewear make premium, handcrafted sunglasses. Their designer frames fuse classic elegance with contemporary flair, creating unique and distinctive silhouettes that are equally at home on the front row of London Fashion Week or the front seat of your truck.
But they’re not all style over substance. In fact, for Monokel, style is substance. That’s because all their frames are made from a unique plant-based acetate. It’s a sustainable and eco-friendly solution to product design that reflects the brand’s painstaking attention to detail and their philosophy of functional simplicity. Admittedly, it’s not fast – in fact, the process of creating each handcrafted frame takes well over three months. But we think all that time is worth it, because the results are stunning. Just take a look at – or even better, through – Monokel’s precision frames and premium Carl Zeiss lenses, and you’ll literally see what we mean.
