With a mutual desire to create a pair of universally flattering sunglasses that are uncompromising in material and craft, Article One and Areaware collaborated from design to development.
As a naturally small-batch brand, Article One frames are handcrafted at the base of the Dolomites in Northern Italy. The Article One x Areaware sunglasses are constructed with true dot rivets, 5 barrel hinges, and Italian hand-dyed acetate. The shape is sized 47 - 23 - 145 with Zeiss sun lenses that provide 100% protection against UVA/UVB rays.
Packaged in a cobranded hard shell case, each frame comes with a limited edition acetate keychain.
