Introducing the brand new Hawkbill sunglasses. Cut from premium quality acetate for unrivalled strength with a rich depth of tone and colour. Reinforced metal frame structure and flush logo placement ooze attention to detail.
These slick, modern frames will look equally as classy on the beach, at the pub or on the bank. The tortoise shell colour way is available in a choice of two to suit your mood (Dark HB001 or Light HB002) and we’re fairly sure Steve Mc Queen would of favoured these in his Great Escape!
What is Acetate?
Used in our Hawkbill collection, cellulose acetate is a plant-based plastic made from wood fibres & natural cotton. This hypoallergenic acetate is strong, lightweight and fairly flexible. Cellulose acetate also has the widest range for transparency with rich colours and finishes.
Cellulose acetate is a non-petroleum based plastic. While petroleum products can be more expensive and harmful to the environment, acetate is made from renewable materials. Our Hawkbill sunglasses are made by forming layers of cellulose acetate plastic into large blocks. They are then lovingly sliced into individual pieces, hand polished and finally assembled into a frame. Packed in the UK by our quality control team to ensure every pair is perfect.
