Conscious co-labs are such a treat, right? The best of two good things. This time it’s Filippa K, our go-to brand for sustainable fashion, and Monokel Eyewear, another Stockholm-based label that specializes in unisex sunglasses made from plant-based acetate or recycled acetate with 100% UV protective lenses. The frames are all handcrafted in a process that takes over three months, and yet they’re sold at a pretty reasonable price point.
Having found common ground in their commitment to timeless, durable design with minimal impact on the environment, Filippa K and Monokel now introduce a limited-edition range of handcrafted and fully biodegradable unisex sunglasses made from plant-based organic acetate with the same mentioned UV lenses from Carl Zeiss Vision. The range includes three styles – Cleo, Barstow, and Robotnik – coming in earthy shades of brown, green and blue; all self-adjustable for an optimized fit.
Looking back on some pretty great Filippa K co-labs (Little Liffner, Saskia Diez, Swedish Stockings, Rörstrand…) we’re sure this one is going to land equally well with the brand’s conscious customer base. Maybe these are even the sustainable sunnies you’ve been looking for but couldn’t find? Then head over to respective brands’ online shops on April 17th, or search out one of the eight international Filippa K stores that will be offering IRL purchases.
