For summer, Porsche Design is presenting interchangeable lenses in new color variants for the legendary P’8478 Sunglasses. As of now, as well as the six classic shades of brown, light blue silver mirrored, grey gradient silver mirrored, green, dark orange silver mirrored and olive silver mirrored three more exclusive colorways: sulfur (yellow), steel blue (blue) and raspberry (red) are available.
A sought-after style icon, P’8478 sunglasses were Porsche Design’s first ever eyewear and today they are still one of the most successful models. The design of this classic item has remained unchanged since 1978, the only difference being the use of ultra-light titanium to bring the P’8478 up to the technical state-of-the-art of the 21st century. The revolutionary feature of these sunglasses was, and is, their innovative interchangeable lens mechanism which enables them to be adapted to various sight requirements and light conditions. Thus the trendy aviator sunglasses not only stand for a sense of style; their appeal lies in their intelligent functionality. Available in four sizes (S, M, L and XL), the P’8478 has become the ultimate classic, enhancing every shape of face.
In 1978 the sunglasses with the innovative interchangeable lens mechanism were not only the first glasses to be made by Porsche Design, but were also the luxury brand’s first contribution to the fashion world. With the new color variants for interchangeable lenses in sulfur, steel blue and raspberry, Porsche Design again establishes a trend matching the height of contemporary fashion. The enlarged range of lenses is obtainable in four sizes, corresponding to the four available frame sizes.
As of now, the new summer shades for the Porsche Design P’8478 Sunglasses are available exclusively from Porsche Design stores throughout the world, and from the online shop.
