Los Angeles-based creative studio Love Made has partnered with eyewear brand Akila (led by former DOPE designer Chris Mar) on a delicious pair of cat eye sunglasses. While paying homage to the retro cat eye shape, the silhouette’s details and color themes are very much of the moment.
Quality polished frames are offered in black, red tortoise or ivory and detailed with gold hardware. Adding an extra boost of design energy, the inside frame is adorned with contrasting color accents, highlighting a cut-out lens detail.
Made by hand, the glasses are detailed with Love Made’s signature geometric heart-shape on the nose pad, cleaning cloth, and packaging.
Commenting on the effort, Love Made co-founder and designer Linda Nguyen stated, “I loved AKILA’s quality and was delighted to create something together. When designing these glasses, I wanted to create a style that was timeless, but also include new details to make it unique and true to Love Made’s design ethos.”
Priced at $120, Love Made and AKILA cat eye silhouette is available now online at shop.love-made.com and in-store at Virgo in Downtown Los Angeles.
