As an extension to its menswear line, John Varvatos introduces its signature eyewear for next season. Boasting tailored lines and Japanese craftsmanship, the new collection takes note from the refined-rebellious nature of Varvatos’ urban romantic to deliver an array of unexpected textures and materials alongside luxuriously modern silhouettes and color palettes.

Looking to Detroit’s past and present infrastructure, the stainless-steel Windsor sunglasses nod to old-world craftsmanship techniques and pay tribute to the city’s vintage cars and metal-clad landscape to deliver premium details such as lightweight titanium nose pads, polarized flat lenses and eye-catching racing-striped temples juxtaposed by a classic Windsor rim. The refined, thin acetate Stardust sunglasses offer eye-catching details such as three-layer laminate construction, mirrored polarized lenses and bold color contrasts that celebrate the vibrant persona of the ’70s British glam rock rebellion.
