The All Seeing Eye

Comment, Style & Design News from Mondottica


You can always count on Jeremy Hackett when it comes to the go-to eyewear accessory for the summer, the sunglasses. And from this season you can count on a new luxury range of frames designed by the man himself, the Hackett Signature collection.

An example of this is the multi-generational appeal of HJP800. This classic square frame displays contemporary elements together with Hackett‘s trusted heritage. Crafted in Japanese acetate, the horn effect gives a soft, warm look and feel. Perfectly adjusting the front angle, mitred joints ensure a smooth finish and connection between the front and the temples. Metallic stretched “H”s frame the end pieces, while embossed JH initials embellish the upper temples.

An oversized frame, HJP802 is a timeless racing style thanks to its sporty aesthetic. This lightweight acetate model features special tortoiseshell lamination on the double bridge and on the temples which extend into end tips in the same colour as the top bar. Further enriching the temples, a gun metal plaque bears Jeremy Hackett’s initials adding panache to the design as a whole.
