One year cooperation between Bentley Motors and Estede is marked by launching Limited Series of solid gold sunglasses that are exceeding expectations, particularly in the main markets of Hong Kong, China and Russia. This first collection of Bentley Eyewear builds on Estede’s rich experience in manufacturing high-end eyewear, combined with the sophisticated design language for which Bentley is renowned around the world.
Sunglasses are available in either 18ct solid gold, silver palladium or platinum. The characteristic Bentley B settled in hand-polished enamel coating, as well as carefully engraved surfaces, reflecting the quilted leather design, are some of the unique elements of this first collection. The Bentley Eyewear collection uses special sunglass lenses, which not only offer 100 per cent UV protection but also reflect the latest in lens technology with state of the art lens coatings.
Our main attraction is the level of personalisation that we can offer. The customer can order the frames or sunglasses in the size needed, we can offer them in white, pink or yellow gold (or even platinum if requested). Also the case is made to order and can be in any hide colour that Bentley offers, since we use the same leather as Bentley, said Christoph Rosenauer, son of Albrecht F. Rosenauer, who founded Estede in 1991. Due to this level of personalisation we only produce to order according to the customer’s specifications. We do not carry stock at present, he added.
Luxury sunglasses from the collection are individually numbered and limited to 100 pieces per colour variation. They come in exclusive packaging which underlines the high level of quality and design. Prices for the limited edition gold variants start at €10,000 ($ 14,450) while the other models start at €7,700($ 11,140). Platinum sunglasses start retailing at €31,500 ($45,550). [Bentley Eyewear]
