SUNPOCKET + A BATHING APE
Sunpocket has joined forces with japanese street wear brand A Bathing Ape for a unique style of limited edition sunglasses, combining Sunpockets quality lightweight foldable glasses with A Bathing Apes sense of style and love of army colours.
The sunglasses, based on Sunpocket Sports style, have a BAPE-green frame and comes in a translucent camo case. The A Bathing Ape logo is seen on the right side, and the Sunpocket logo on the left.
Sunpockets history traces back to the late 1970’s where the signature foldable shades gained a strong following in the French ski community. Ten years later, Sunpocket had become immensely popular all over Europe. In 2011 Sunpocket was re-launched by swedish entreprenuer Jacob Höglund, after him falling in love with a pair of vintage Sunpocket glasses left by his father in their ski cottage. The sunglasses are still made in the same factory in Mauritius where they were originally made. Building on its legacy of innovative and distinctive sunglasses, Sunpocket established itself as a brand known for its style, authenticity and quality.The Sunpocket + BAPE sunglasses will be released in June, and will be sold at selected BAPE stores around the world. They will also be sold at Colette in Paris and at 10 Corso Como in Seoul. Price: $247X
