Bugatti releases new range of sunglasses featuring 16 wild designs

Bugatti has just debuted its latest range of high-end eyewear.

The luxury carmaker says the collection “has something for everyone”, and this is true provided everyone has a couple of thousand dollars to drop on sunglasses.

The luxury car brand has partnered with designer Larry Sands for the second time.

He was the creative mind behind Collection One, which launched earlier this year.

The aim was to take the company’s ethos of high performance, innovative design and unmatched luxury and apply it to eyewear.

The result is a collection of glasses with unique silhouettes crafted using high-quality materials.

These sunnies are made using 925 sterling silver, grade 5 titanium, carbon fiber and Macassar ebony, a rare wood prized for its durability.

They also feature mother-of-pearl inlays and 18K gold details, adding to their opulent look and feel.

One of the most eye-catching pairs even has a flip-up function.

When flipped down the signature horseshoe grill and Macaron badge are front and center of these single-lens shades.

Wearers can flip up the top layer to reveal pared-back thin silver frames for a more subtle look.

Although the big gold ‘B’ on the arms is still undeniably flashy.

There is also a chic and feminine cat-eye style.

These have tiny gold details engraved in the style of Bugatti’s signature grilles.

And for those wanting to look like a mad scientist with a huge bank balance, there is a steampunk-inspired goggle pair.

Collection Two’s prices have not been revealed yet.

But if Collection One prices are anything to go by, fans can expect to pay anything between $1,295 and $15,000.

Some have commented that these shades are too wild and over-the-top.

But that’s the point.

“Each design of each piece serves as a testament to the brand’s commitment to pushing boundaries,” the company said.
