Sunglasses 1969 Unisex, Braun
Marbled frame. In tortoise shell look.
Inspired by late 1960s models, the striking frame of these glasses features a marbled tortoise shell look. Cellulose acetate is the ideal material for this, as genuine tortoiseshell - obtained from the scales of sea turtle shells - is obviously out of the question these days for animal welfare reasons. The category 2 plastic lenses with their dark tint are optimized for the summer sunny days of our latitudes.
Glasses. Handmade in Germany
Mapleton is the Hamburg-based eyewear label of Klaus Stiegemeyer and Florian Baron. Both are lovers of distinctive eyewear. In their search for the right frames, however, they repeatedly came up against limits, as shape and workmanship were rarely on a par. Without further ado, therefore, they decided to make their own eyewear, which they find completely convincing from the design to the handcrafted production. The shapes are classic, based on designs from the 1930s to the 1990s, and at the same time up to date - at Mapleton they say "Vintage Contemporary". Florian Baron explains it this way: "We have rummaged through the decades and gathered a pool of reference eyewear. The frames are based on the respective models. However, we make a point of locating the form in the present and dusting it off." The materials are also tried and true: Cellulose acetate and brass are used. Produced is purely by hand in a manufactory in southern Germany: it takes more than 50 steps to complete a single pair of glasses.
