Welcome to Series 2 of the Barton Perreira x 007 collaboration where the Joe is reimagined in new colours inspired by key locations from forthcoming film, No Time To Die. This is the 007 Joe Sunglasses - Port Antonio / Safari Solarised Edition.
Drawing on the hues of Port Antonio in Jamaica, the design has a a champagne sand coloured frame with dark green polarised lenses evoking the white beaches and lush green jungle of the area. The polished classic rectangular frame is designed in the USA and handmade in Japan from Japanese acetate and glass.
Details. The handmade frame is built from zylonite acetate containing metal core wiring to provide a skeletal foundation with supreme comfort and a flexible fit. The signature lightweight feel of the sunglasses is due to the resin-based polymer plastic used. Zylonite is tumbled for several days before being hand polished twice to create a seamlessly smooth surface. This material selection and uncompromising process results in a light, durable product with a deep gloss finish. The sunglasses are finished with 007 inscribed temples and come with a limited edition 007 case and cleaning cloth.
Dimensions. Eye size 52mm, bridge size 20mm, temple length 148mm
