Paco Rabanne and Linda Farrow are reimagining contemporary, statement eyewear with their joint collaboration, a reflection of heritage and innovation in the form of sunglasses. 

Heralded for their artistry and craftsmanship, the Spanish fashion house and luxury American sunglasses house are weaving together their iconic aesthetics, producing two bold, defined styles borne of similar creative visions dating back to the same era of conception. 

Handmade in Japan, both styles of sunglasses are expertly sculpted from Italian cellulose acetate, using plant fibers from renewable resources in efforts for a more sustainable future. The black acetate is entirely recycled material, while nylon lenses are 100% UVA and UVB protective with an anti-glare coating.

 

Paco Rabanne’s idyllic, vibrant style is palpable in both styles of shades, meshing with Linda Farrow’s chic, fashion-forward styles just in time for summer. The Donyale shades are oversized, with an ultra-curvy, rounded silhouette consisting of two tonal frames layered back to back—art, whimsy and sophistication are at the core of the shades, from the thick gold-plated titanium temples to the bold, chunky rims. 

Colorways for the Donyale include uber-sleek black and white, bubbly ocean and sky blue and a deep, sophisticated burgundy and red. 

 

The Moe, meanwhile, is a more squared, unisex vision of collaboration. With a high-shine, hand-polished thick frame and monogrammed eyelet accents at the temple, these shades evoke nonchalance and rock, an innate sense of coolness without overstating it. The Moe comes in black, white and baby pink, each shade simple and suave. 

The launch finds a creative outlet of expression in a campaign by Quentin Saunier, nodding at the 1991 film Thelma & Louise. In a vintage convertible, three friends drive across a scenic landscape in Mexico, basking in the freedom of the open road, the celebration of the everyday, and the empowerment of Paco Rabanne x Linda Farrow sunglasses.
