Chartreux

$201.00

100 Limited Pieces

Description
Cats-eye sunglasses, popularised in the 50s, rocketed to worldwide vogue in 60s Hollywood film. The exaggerated upswept frame has seen a resurgence, it could be said this style is experiencing its renaissance. Countless iterations and imitations exist with few truly unique designs emerging.

Named after the stoic companion to French Carthusian Monks, the Chartreux is an understated interpretation, with sculpted acetate reminiscent of its namesake’s muscular form. Embellished with bespoke luxury metal hardware and finished with a subtle catlike brow, this homage to the classic style is altogether unique.
