Almost 200 individual manufacturing processes have gone into creating the exquisite P’8542. This addition to the successful flowing titanium series embodies the styling of the legendary design icon, the Porsche 911, which Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche created in 1963. The sunglasses, which are 85% hand-made from pure titanium and are incredibly light and flexible, retail at £350.

The second new frame is the P’8550, a lightweight yet incredibly strong model with metal mono sheet front and innovative high-tech carbon fibre sides. The model, which retails at £285, comes with four colour options, one of which includes polarised lenses.
