Just in time for summer, PLEASURES has now unveiled its latest Vision Program sunglasses crafted in collaboration with AKILA.

Utilizing AKILA’s eyewear expertise, the special range of shades is inspired heavily by Y2K era early Internet aesthetics. The special eyewear styles reference distinct looks representative of styling points associated with the interesting transitional period between the ’90s and ’00s. The Reflex model is a full wrap style sunglasses style crafted of eco-friendly acetate marked with bold “PLEASURES” branding on the sides. Coming in “Black Sparkle” and “Pink Tortoise,” the Method style builds on a classic wayfarer look with eco-friendly acetate and sleek arms complete with metal “pleasures” branding. Each pair is outfitted with 100 percent full UVA/UVB protection handmade lenses.

The latest Vision Program sunglasses will be available on AKILA and PLEASURES’ websites May 14, 1 p.m. EST.
