Illesteva's hand-crafted sunglasses go from strength to strength. We're delighted with their third drop, released just in time for the summer holidays.

Since the brand's founding in 2010, designers Daniel Silberman and Jus Ske have established themselves as small-scale artisanal specialists with a cult following for their Italian and French-made eyewear.

Each pair is conceived in their Manhattan studio with inspiration from the streets, projecting the future of New York style. Illesteva's latest drop shows them very much at the top of their game.

Our picks:


Murdoch Clear Sunglasses
Illesteva's Murdoch silhouette, triumphantly exposed. Unique clear Italian acetate with high shine lacquer finish reveals intricate arm and hinge metalwork, and is perfectly complemented by classic dark brown CR-39 lenses offering 100% UV protection. Clearly on-trend and ready for every outfit, every occasion.


Murdoch Sand Tortoise Sunglasses
Tortoiseshell is one of the fashion stories of the season. Illesteva's retro-future Murdoch frame provides the ideal setting. With central detailing and exposed hinge studs, the frame is constructed from selected Italian acetate. Shaded brown CR-39 lenses complete another captivating Illesteva chapter.


Leonard Half / Half Grey Sunglasses
A real innovation based on Illesteva's signature Leonard silhouette. Crafted from Italian acetate, here the Leonard has a dark upper and subtle shading into a grey lower half of the frame. Sky blue reflective UV400 CR-39 lenses provide a vivid contrast to create a new Illesteva classic.

Illesteva's third drop is now available here at Opumo.
