TRiCKETT Sunglasses – Borghese Turtle


Sunglasses are one of those things that you only value when you really need them. Whether that is overheating when on holiday, being blinded when you are driving / cycling or when you have had a few too many and need to ‘rest your eyes.’ There is nothing worse than coming to these glasses only to realise that the frames are bent, the hinges have bust or in some cases the lenses have fallen out.

So what we decided to do was to make some glasses with the best manufacturer in the world to prevent anymore spectacle issues. Guess what… They are in Italy! So we had a chat and came up with these. These sunglasses are a pretty modern take on what sunglasses used to be like, slightly angular, with good eye coverage, these are all you will ever need. They are made entirely by hand “Fatto a Mano” and are a real joy to wear.

The colour is inspired by a trip to Rome when I was truly at peace. Watching the turtles in the Villa Borghese bob along in the sunshine. The Italian-made acetate comes in various browns paying homage to the turtles, with purple flecks through. The lenses are a lilac / purple fade and make the world look altogether better.

Pop a pair on and feel at least 20% more Italian.

Lense 48mm, Bridge 24mm and Temple 140mm. Can be altered to your prescription by your trusty optician.

THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. The glasses will be ordered on the 1st August and will take 2-3 weeks to arrive from that point. We will try our best to get them to you earlier for your holidays.
