Perfection in its most beautiful form

Porsche Design presents the consistent expansion of the current spectacles collection. A total of ten new sunglasses and correction frames carry on the philosophy of Porsche Design and pick up on the typical features of the luxury brand at the same time, which are reduced shapes, innovative functionality and select materials. The results are exclusive spectacles with outstanding wearing comfort for the highest demands.

Flowing shapes: Flowing titanium
The men’s line made of titanium that was already successfully launched last year follows the styling of the legendary design icon, the Porsche 911. The silhouette of the sports car with its flowing lines and smooth transitions is the major source of inspiration for all models in this line. The spectacles are made of beta-titanium. The material known from aerospace technology stands for maximum lightness, flexibility and hence the greatest wearing comfort. The P’8496 sunglasses have a technical-masculine air about them. Openings on the nose-piece and flowing shapes give this model a poised vibrancy, while finely crafted edges create a discrete interplay of light and shade. The P’8182 correction spectacles combine elegance and a sporty look. The optimum lens for the curved half-rim frame also comes from Porsche Design – Tailor-Made Glasses. The tailor-made high-tech lenses are individually adapted to the wearer’s eye and the frame. The result is a perfectly matched product with the highest optical quality and unsurpassed harmonious aesthetics. The image is completed by a brand that is laser engraved into the lens. Bothersome reflections are reduced to a minimum with a specially developed Premium antireflection coating. Hence, high-contrast vision is possible in any situation. In addition, the lenses are equipped with a scratch-resistant, water and grease-repellent Premium care coating, which also has antistatic properties. Dirt simply beads and cleaning the lenses is child’s play.

Aerodynamic eyewear: stylistically confident functionality
The sporty P’8503 and P’8504 sunglasses are the perfect companion for active Porsche Design fans. Inspired by test runs in wind tunnels and by the Porsche car design, the dynamic lines and high-tech materials ensure a confident style in any situation. The spectacles, with two-component sides and soft rubber ends as well as lenses made of extremely shatterproof polycarbonate lenses that have an antireflection coating on the inside, guarantee the greatest possible wearing comfort and safety, even for fast sports. They also let ladies and gentlemen look good after sport.

Carbon acetate glasses: exquisite cockpit look
The two correction models, P’8190 and P’8191, make a clear statement for a self-confident and elegant image. The frames are made of high-quality plastic and are designed in an exclusive carbon look. In order to add to the liveliness, the effect of this look is supplemented with translucent polyamide. The specialness is also found in the details. These convincing spectacles have a spring hinge that is completely integrated in the frame.

Porsche Design Woman: puristic, precise, feminine
The ladies collection launched for the first time by Porsche Design at the beginning of the year is captivating with its reduced styling that concentrates on the essentials, thereby highlighting what is special. Three brand new sunglasses supplement this idea. With P’9522 and P’8526, the luxury brand has brought two more aviator models to the market made of plastic and stainless steel respectively in the large-size shield look. Kept sporty and elegant at the same time, the P’8524 sunglasses suit the face shape optimally, as do the other models. In addition to the soft, feminine and simultaneously clear lines, the spectacles of the Porsche Design sunglasses collection for ladies are also convincing due to their functional details such as the integrated spring hinges.

The new models from the Porsche Design Eyewear collection are available effective immediately from the license partner, Rodenstock.
