Porsche design celebrates 40 years with exclusive eyewear
Porsche Design is celebrating 40 years of engineered luxury with an exclusive sunglasses collector’s box – and there are only five available to the optical network in the UK.
The ‘40Y of Innovation’ collection features four iconic models deemed as milestones for the company since its inception in 1972, and demonstrate the brand’s commitment to passion, performance, purism and precision.
The sunglasses are presented in a beautiful black, wooden box, and each is marked with a unique number to show it is one of just 1,972 worldwide – to commemorate the founding year of Porsche Design.
The stunning set includes the 40Y edition of the iconic heritage piece from 1978 – model P’8478 – whose design has remained unchanged to this day and was the first of its kind to feature interchangeable lenses.
Also featured in the collector’s box:
• Model P’8480 (1980) – the first foldable aviator sunglasses
• Model P’8418 (2006) – the first sunglasses with self-attaching interchangeable lenses
• Model P’8494 (2010) – the first sunglasses pressed from one piece of titanium
The selected models are exclusive to the collector’s box; however there are only five available to the optical network in the UK.
The ‘40Y of Innovation’ collector’s box retails at £1,700. For further details contact Rodenstock
