Okay, it may not technically be sunglasses weather, but with the industry pushes seasonal trends in advance, they’re going to be featured heavily in the upcoming months. Inspired by the iconic Nike Air Max Safari sneaker originally released in 1987, 9Five have released these exclusive sunglasses that meld together retro patterns with sharp angles.
The outer temple features the ‘Safari’ print made famous by the sneakers, which is contrasted by a burnt orange inner. The remainder of the frame is covered in a sleek slate that compliments the arm tips wrapped in fine leather, adding a further dollop of luxury to an already exquisite pair of shades.
Even the construction is noteworthy. The glasses, unlike many others, are constructed from sturdy materials that can withstand more than just three outings. The large black polarised lenses come in a 58mm width and are coupled with an ample sized bridge – needless to say, it doesn’t make this particular style flattering on those with prominently rectangular faces.
These aren’t your average pair of shades, in fact hardly anyone will be lucky enough to possess a pair due their extremely limited availability. The glasses are a hot commodity and coveted by many, so be quick to get a pair from 9Five now.
