Sunglass Haven: Testament of Quality


November 28, 2018 | BY Philippine Tatler

Along with building a name for itself in the Philippines, Sunglass Haven, curates fine frames from some of the world’s biggest eyewear makers

Since it opened its doors in 2009, Sunglass Haven has become the go-to retail destination for the coolest shades in the country with its extensive selection of designer frames. This is a testament to its long-standing relationships with global  eyewear brands, among which are Luxottica, Safilo, and Mondottica.

Seeing the beauty of life is Luxottica’s vision, inspired by 57 years of innovation in design, technology, and strategic marketing. Its mission is to craft protective eyewear that has enhanced the looks and appearances of numerous generations.

Sunglass Haven adds to its extensive portfolio, collections from Prada, which reflect the brand’s casual yet sophisticated luxury. Adding to these are innovative pieces from Ray-Ban and Oakley. Ray-Ban’s Blaze Aviator is a reinvention of the beloved iconic frames with gradient lenses and a bold double bridge to strike a balance of classic and edgy. After building a presence in performance wear, Oakley’s Latch Key provides durability and optimum comfort, utilising the O-Matter frame material.

Safilo’s work, on the other hand, has grown into a global presence over the past 88 years. The manufacturing group combines its tradition of excellence with state-of-the-art technology to produce eyewear that conveys the heritage of Italian craftsmanship. Among its collections carried by Sunglass Haven, Carrerra and Hugo Boss combine form and functionality, tying in elegance and ergonomics.

Safilo also stands to embody contemporary designer eyewear with the Fendi Can Eye in rose gold and the Dior Abstract in blue boreal. The former reinterprets modern feminine allure and the latter features tortoise shell frames and refreshing ice blue lenses. Exuding the manufacturing group’s signature luxe is Max Mara’s Anita, a full rimmed 1970s cat-eye reimagined in a solid black and finished off with a gold prism detailing. Inarguably one of the most popular contemporary eyewear manufacturing companies is the Mondottica group. Today it collaborates with a string of international brands, on an endeavour to create sunglasses that communicate each of their brands’ stories as best with every design produced.

A few months ago, Sunglass Haven introduced an exquisite collection by Hackett London of Mondottica. The quintessentially British household name combines sportswear and men’s tailoring even in designing its eyewear. The Brush Gold sunglasses both for men and women feature gold frames and green lenses in a fashionable round shape. Inspired by industrial machinery, this premium range is a reflection of successful individuals and their sartorial requirements.

All these are just a glimpse into Sunglass Haven’s wellcurated selection. The company undoubtedly continues as a purveyor of premium sunglasses without compromising comfort and quality, all the while communicating Filipinos’ diverse lifestyles.
