One month after debuting a new basketball sneaker, Byredo is revealing plans for a new eyewear addition to their lineup of accessories. Specifically, the brand is launching a new collection known as BYREDO Solaires.

Notably, Byredo’s BYREDO Solaires range is made up of three handcrafted options: “The Engineer,” “The Bohemian” and “The Certified Pilot.” Manufactured using Japanese titanium and mineral glass, the aforementioned styles were created with “genderless personas” in mind and each offering is available in several different striking colorways.

“A modern trapezoidal shape of The Engineer is subtle and unimposing, creating a sharp silhouette with planed sides and a linear profile,” reads an official breakdown of BYREDO Solaires’ “Engineer” eyewear.

“The Bohemian” features a “rounded, curvilinear lens,” which is utilized in order to produce an “immediate air of eccentricity.” The construction of these frames is largely inspired by the 60’s counterculture as well.

Lastly, “The Certified Pilot” glasses take their design from traditional 1930’s aviator frames, with an “angled, oval-shaped frame,” “double nose bridge” and “large lenses” making up the bulk of its structure. The inspirational cues behind “The Certified Pilot” primarily come from military eyewear styles, and this offering references “bygone eras of travel.”

You can take a look at all three selections from Byredo’s new BYREDO Solaires collection above. The BYREDO Solaires line is currently being sold at BYREDO’s brick-and-mortar locations, and each pair retails for £380.
