While many of us look forward to fall for its flannel-forward wardrobe, summer has its own crucial staple: new sunglasses. And Sunglass Hut has you covered there, with its latest exclusive drop: the ZAYN x ARNETTE’s LEVEL 02 – RETRO-TOWN.
When it comes to eyewear, it’s difficult to strike a balance between vintage cool and modern functionality, and even harder to make a statement at the same time––but that’s exactly where this collaboration shines. The design inspiration behind the recent drop’s four looks predominantly came from Zayn’s love of glitchy-graphic old-school video games. Mixing nostalgic ’90s shapes and lens tints with today’s latest environmentally-conscious technology, the Professional, Daken, and Agent Z frames (names any comic book Stan will recognize) protect your eyes and the environment, all the while keeping style on the forefront of everyone’s minds.
Made with sustainable bio-acetate and bio-lenses, the bio-acetate parts of the RETRO-TOWN frames are 100% biodegradable and 100% recyclable, leaving less of an environmental impact than your average pair of shades. But before all that, you’ll want to make sure you work them into your fit for a weekend stroll down Prince Street or Sunset Boulevard. All the drop’s styles lend themselves to both laid-back-but-dressed-up beachy vibes and smart but chill street style.
This time around, Zayn and Arnette set out to create a lineup that could be worn during any season and be deemed timeless. They incorporated poppy but subtle gradient colors and tinted lenses into the LEVEL 02 edition of their collaboration, bringing an analog, retro feeling into the contemporary world.
