The latest eyewear from Monc has just landed - with edgy designs inspired by some of Europe's most innovative design districts. London-based Monc is all about the meeting between aesthetics and sustainability. These Italian made glasses and sunglasses make no compromise when it comes to both the look and the ethics of every pair that Monc release. Manufacturing is in small batches, with every part of every frame traceable back to its source materials.
Monc was founded in 2016 by Freddie Elborne, who is now set on making the company net zero when it comes to waste. With the highest standards both in ethics and design, these latest Monc pieces are designed for a stylish lifetime.
Inspired by one of Barcelona's most avant-garde districts, Gracia sunglasses speak of the cosmopolitan and Bohemian air of Gracia itself, a place where innovative design is an everyday experience. Vintage style thick bio-acetate frames have a softened squared-off design, dark lenses are mineral glass while five-barrel hinges are in stainless steel. So very simple, so highly individual.
Available in a range of colours, these Gracia spectacles are inspired by Barcelona's most Bohemian district, a place where edgy style is a way of life. Frames are hand crafted from bio-acetate into a thick, decisively squared off look. The high quality extends to the smallest details: hinges are five barrel in stainless steel. Now, where's the Cava?
There are few places where street fashion is as individual as Berlin's Kreuzberg, the heart of the city's thriving alternative sub-culture. These Kreuzberg sunglasses are inspired by that ethos. Four colour choices add your own individuality to this statement design. Bio-acetate frames combine with the highest quality five barrel hinges and a striking over-the-nose bar to create sunglasses very much worthy of their revered name.
Simultaneously iconoclastic and timeless, Kreuzberg spectacles have a subtle impact all of their own. Conceived to be in tune with the edginess that characterises the Bohemian district of Berlin that they're named after, this is eyewear that will become an effortless personal statement. Frames are in environmentally friendly bio-acetate with designed-for-life five barrel stainless steel hinges.
Functionally simple, yet with a subtle degree of quirk, these are sunglasses that very much reflect the street style of the vibrant Södermalm district of Stockholm. The look is a subtle twist on Swedish form-follows-function design. Bio-acetate frame riff on Wayfarer and cat-eye styles while remaining resolutely original and conceived to suit every face, Södermalm sunglasses are fitted with mineral glass frames and five barrel stainless steel hinges.
The look is happening Swedish designer, capturing the very essence of Stockholm's dynamic Södermalm neighbourhood. Marrying together classic cat's eye and Wayfarer style designs, Södermalm spectacles create a look that is very much their own. Ethically sourced bio-acetate is used for the Italian made frames, crafted in small batches. Detailing is crucial, with five barrel hinges in stainless steel.
