Porsche Design presents the 2021 colour of the year: P’8478-U

Black meets gold: The 2021 colour of the year

With P’8478, Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche created a design icon in 1978, which is so unique that to this day it is recognised around the globe not only by design lovers. As the world's first sunglasses with interchangeable lens mechanism, Porsche Design sets trends in terms of design and functionality. The distinctive look of the spectacles has now been reinterpreted in the 2021 colour of the year: A classy gold shade meets deep black contrasts, thus highlighting the classic design of the frame. The dark grey lenses in aviator style complete the elegant look of the spectacles.

The 2021 colour of the year is limited to 1,500 copies and comes in an exclusive box with an additional pair of interchangeable lenses in an olive colour at a RRP of € 460.
