Bentley Motors teams up with Estede for limited edition sunglasses in solid gold
Every time luxury brands partner with each other, one can be prepared to have something ‘eye-popping’ literally. British luxury vehicle maker Bentley, and luxury Eyewear Company Estede have been associated with each other for a year now. To celebrate the occasion, have introduced limited edition sunglasses made of pure gold, which will be made in a limited edition of 100 pieces per color, and will also be marked individually. This could very well be a perfect marriage of sophisticated design and quality at one place.
The sunglasses in question have been given a sophisticated ‘radiator’ shape in its design. The frame itself is a perfectly balanced and handcrafted specimen of eyewear, on which precious metals like yellow gold, platinum or even white gold have been used. The lenses have been given special state of the art treatments which include comprehensive UV protection, and are also polarized so that strong light conditions don’t affect the wearer. Since perfection has long been associated with these brands, the customers are asked to order their pairs individually so that the sizing and the perfect color of lenses can be looked into. Hence, there isn’t much of stock you could take a trial on. These sunglasses come in packaging which is equally exclusive. Detailed attention has been paid to ensure that the size and design of the box fits into the compartment of the Bentley Mulsanne sedan, which has an exclusive place in the central console of the car.
Pricing for a pair of these varies in the range of $14,378 for the 18ct gold edition, and $45,276 for the platinum edition. For further examples of what Bentley collaboration with renowned designer and brands, include the Tibaldi Bentley super-sports pen, the Carte Blance James Bond book, and the Breightling Supersports lightweight watch, which have carried forward the similar flavor of exclusivity like the Bentley vehicles themselves.
