Just when you thought we were done with our 5YA celebrations, we thought we'd drop another exclusive collaboration online. It's not the average collab that you'd expect from a specialist denim brand. However, an awesome opportunity presented itself to us so we thought we'd grab the bull by the horns and give it a go.
And, we're just in time for summer.
It’s not always easy picking a new pair of sunglasses out, primarily due to the vast amount of choice on the market. So, if you're looking for something in tune with your denim wants and needs then we've got your back.
We've teamed up with our long-time friend's at Dutch bicycle and sunglasses brand Johnny Loco to create a special pair 'indigo dipped' BENZAK sunglasses.
The lenses are semi-flat with subtle green Carl Zeiss CR-39 anti-reflective lenses. You've most likely heard the name Carl Zeiss when in conversation about camera lenses. Or, if you're familiar with the scientific instrument maker himself you'd know he pioneered optical instrument production. Anyhow, Carl Zeiss Vision creates high-quality glasses lenses that filter out up to 100% of UVA and UVB radiation. Whether you're out n' about town on a scorching hot day, or if you're kicking back with a coffee at a cafe in the sun. You can be sure to enjoy comfortable vision in style.
The BDD x JOHNNY LOCO frame is a limited edition Italian Cellulose Acetate dipped in a BENZAK blue colouring made by Mazzucchelli in a laboratory project. The style has durable 5-barrel rivet hinges for maximum strength and sturdiness, as well as BENZAK branding on the inside of the frame's arm. Mazzucchelli was founded in 1849 and can only be described as the pinnacle of multi-faceted craftsmanship. They're one of those businesses with a deep heritage and sticks to what they know. Yet, they're incredibly up to date. In addition to Celluloid and Cellulose Acetate sheets, Mazzucchelli also produces automotive parts, household appliances, and even skis. As you guys know, we're all about intricate details, functional design, and high quality. When you know a manufacturer is producing on this kind of level, you know you're getting a super durable end result.
Being honest with the details and selecting a stylistic silhouette was one of the key ingredients of making this happen for you guys. We've selected a versatile face friendly frame. What we mean by this is, the glasses will look great on all face shapes and sizes. The minimal design gives the wearer an effortless and modernised look. The timeless round-shape speaks contemporary design and assists with an overall relaxed appearance. The collaboration glasses are a slight step away from the standard go-to "wayfarer'. They speak for themselves with a humble aesthetic and original faded colour gradient.
The glasses will look good with just about any all year round style.
