Oakley’s latest artist series sources the United Kingdom’s Stanley Donwood to instill his creativity on a pair of Jupiter sunglasses. Known as one of Britain’s notable contemporary artists, his influence and visibility has extended across many parts of Europe and Tokyo. The sunglasses feature an abstract motif that includes both a cloth case and hard case. The Stanley Donwood x Oakley Jupiter is available now at Oakley with a retail price of $225 USD.

Stanley Donwood never thought he could make a living as an artist. But, after realizing he was incapable of doing anything else, he decided give it a try anyway. Turns out it was a good move. Today, Donwood is recognized as one of the UK’s most popular contemporary artists and has exhibited his gallery art to an international fan base in London, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Barcelona, and Rotterdam. Since 1994, Donwood has also designed all the artwork for Radiohead and helped create one of music’s most distinctive brands.

Notoriously reclusive, Donwood has a unique relationship with Oakley. He believes Oakley sunglasses make the world easier to look at. Especially after staying up way too late working on his artwork.

Donwood’s initial concept for his Artist Series Oakley glasses was to create peril-sensitive sunglasses like the ones described by Douglas Adams in The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. They would go completely black at the first sign of danger, saving you from having to look at anything dangerous. Of course, that was impossible. So the artwork on these limited edition frames is adapted from a Donwood piece called “London Views” which shows London being destroyed by fire and flood in a quasi-medieval style. The sunglasses come with matching box and micro bag that are also collector’s items.

The Stanley Donwood Artist Series Jupiter™ sunglasses are shaped from lightweight, stress-resistant O Matter® frame material. 6 base lens curvature optimizes peripheral view. Three-point fit holds lenses in precise optical alignment. Plutonite® lens material filters 100% UV. Optional Iridium lens coating reduces glare. Optical precision, performance and impact resistance meets ANSI Z87.1 standards.
