To celebrate our ongoing friendship and partnership with Stockholm’s Monokel Eyewear, we are delighted to welcome our second collaborative capsule. Designed with Monokel’s first-ever two-tone acetate construction, this 100-pair limited edition capsule emphasises our community’s most loved Monokel Eyewear frames and acetate finishes across four individually numbered pairs.
Following the success of our first Bottle Green collaboration and ongoing support of the Monokel Eyewear range at Above The Clouds, in our next capsule we wanted to showcase our favourite frames and let the beauty of everyday items do the talking. Using only two neutral-coloured acetate colours and frames & lenses, we created four two-toned iterations of our favourite Monokel Eyewear sunglasses; the Apollo and the Memphis in Cola and Grey. The result is an ode to Monokel Eyewear’s philosophy of simplicity, functionality and wearability made in harmony with creative human expression and a representation of the people we call our ATC community.
The Apollo, a unisex sharp rectangular frame, arrives in a Cola frame with tonal brown lenses and Grey temples or a Grey frame with tonal grey lenses and Cola temples.
Accompanying the Apollo is the Memphis: an angular rectangle style that also arrives in a Cola frame with tonal brown lenses and Grey temples or a Grey frame with tonal grey lenses and Cola temples.
Like all Monokel Eyewear sunglasses, the frames are made from premium, organic, biodegradable and plant-based acetate, which is handcrafted using over a 3-month long process. Each frame is limited to 25 pairs, each individually numbered from 1 to 25 and accompanied by Above The Clouds for Monokel branded embossing on the interior temple. The lenses are Carl Zeiss Vision and are made for all genders.
The frames launch online and in-store today, Thursday, 12 January, at Shop 8/285A Crown St, Surry Hills NSW 2010.
