Do you like this story?
I don’t wear prescription lenses so I don’t have to worry about getting sunglasses that fit the prescription. I know it can be trouble and most people just buy an extra pair because who really wants to wear those over the lenses sunglasses you see on infomercials at 3 a.m.
4Occhi has solved this issue with an innovative pair (should I say pair?) of sunglasses that are basically two pairs attached to each other at the bridge. Designed by Giulio Iacchetti, you can flip them and wear either set of lenses. You could fit one level with your prescription and the other with sunglass lenses.
Do you have the moxy?
They definitely look interesting enough, but I don’t know if they look good enough for anyone to actually wear them. It couldn’t be more convenient for someone but at some point looks becomes more important than convenience. Still, these innovative glasses are sure to interest designers and awards all over.
The retail for this is unknown.
