Future-focused accessory label Vitaly expands its highly-coveted lineup of jewelry by introducing the Empire sunglasses. Taking inspiration from the iconic frames of 90s hip-hop in New York, the specs are available in three color options: “Black,” “Charcoal,” and “Clear.”

Further cementing its position as the future of accessories, the German-engineered sunglasses are tested to the nanometer to ensure a high level of precision and functionality day after day. The biodegradable acetate construction uses a vegetable-oil bonding agent and is significantly more eco-friendly in comparison to conventional acetate, which can take years to decompose. Moreover, the metal detailing on the frames is made of 100% recycled stainless steel and its “Green Nylon” lenses are made with 39% plant oils.

Branding appears on both the inside and outside of the temples with the label’s new brandmark appearing on the outside. The glasses come in a branded faux-leather soft case with a recycled microfiber polishing cloth included.

Priced at €235 EUR, the Empire sunglasses are available to purchase now via Vitaly’s website.

Elsewhere in fashion, Nike x Supreme continue their highly-coveted partnership with their Spring 2022 collection.
