AO x Ciele Sunglasses is an oversized aviator frame suitable for medium to wide faces.
Joint adventures often start in unlikely places.
An initial discussion on a hot day in Las Vegas, led to Article One and Ciele Athletics working together to build this modern take on sports eyewear, inspired by late 70’s and early 80’s athletics aesthetics.
The GTGlass frames are made in Italy with TR90 polymer plastic, an incredibly durable, lightweight and hypoallergenic material made to hold it’s shape, even in the highest temperatures. Tonal silicone nose pads are made to grip and hold – with a wire core skeleton that athletes can squeeze tight during a workout, and let loose afterward. Silicone pads wrap around the ear for additional comfort and grip. The frames include Divel, Italian-made, CR-39 Polarized lenses that block 100% of UVA/UVB rays and prevent road glare, plus the back side has an extra anti-reflective coating to counteract any reflection coming from the eye. Spring hinges allow for give and bounce back in case of rough wear, and each frame comes with a retainer strap and hard case to go anywhere on your adventure.
Article One was founded in Flint, Michigan, while their eyewear is handcrafted in Italy. They offer timeless designs in attractive colors, and they pride themselves in quality and durability.
