Luxurious, exclusive, stylish, protective, handcrafted
Here's a pair of shades that certainly catches the eye, whether you're out for a casual weekend drive, or just looking to blend into the background in some backstreet corner of the world. This collaboration between LA-based Barton Perreira, Uncrate and Wayne Enterprises has resulted in a sleek and unassuming piece of eyewear that feels as good as it looks.
Christened the Damian, after Bruce Wayne's progeny, this collaboration has churned out a silhouette that holds its own ground. Now, don't let the name fool you into thinking these sunglasses are child's play. They are as serious as they come.
The Japanese acetate used in the crafting of these sunglasses is a sight to behold, offering two distinct hues to choose from. For the style-conscious, the translucent shadow grey frames would be the pick of the bunch. They exude a unique aesthetic that's sure to turn heads, making you stand out in the crowd. But if you're more of the mysterious type, then the matte black frame is your go-to option. This dark avatar absorbs light with ruthless efficiency, ensuring your persona remains shrouded, just as the Batman himself would prefer.
However, it's not all about looks. These sunglasses pack quite a punch when it comes to functionality. The polarized lenses come with a Vioff backside anti-reflective coating that is said to absorb an impressive 95% of UV light. That's a significant leap from the average AR coatings, making it a perfect choice for those sunny days out in Gotham or wherever your travels may take you.
The Wayne Enterprise “W” logo is subtly etched into the temple tip, and the breath logo on the lens – only visible when fogged, add a layer of mystique. The accompanying pebbled leather presentation box and accessories underscore the level of care and thought that's gone into this collaboration.
The Damian sunglasses, handcrafted in Japan, don't just sell you a product; they offer an experience. An experience of superior craftsmanship and style. At $560 a pair, they might seem like a splurge, but for those who understand the value of a truly unique accessory, this investment will be worth every penny.
