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.
