Oakley’s prominence within the world of eyewear didn’t come in an instant. In fact, the company has spent the last 40 years honing its craft, creating quintessential silhouettes for military, sport, and style usage. Now, the brand is taking a look back on its less-than-modest beginnings with the Origins Collection — three new revisions that pay homage to the legendary Eyeshades model.
To introduce this new capsule, Oakley has tapped three of its most revered silhouettes to take on the auras of nostalgic color, shape, and design that were once associated with the Eyeshades platform. The Sutro, Jawbreaker, and Frogskins have each been contracted to adorn the eyewear’s most prominent characteristics, including circular venting, extended peripheral technologies, and retro shapes. Each of Oakley’s chosen champions features the company’s modernized Prizm Lens Technology (which helps to control light transmission and create more vivid colors), Lightweight O Matter frame materials, and performance-oriented Unobtainium components to keep things contemporary and cutting-edge. Head to the company’s website to learn more about the collection, and pick up a pair for $136+.
