Gold-Plated Sunglasses


Brooklyn artist collective EXOvault has become known for their steampunk iPhone cases, as they’re not afraid to play with aluminum, brass or titanium. Now they’ve launched their first eyewear design, which they manufacture themselves. A closer look at the frame shows the grooves of the machining marks—evidence of the process involving around 500,000 individual cuts into a solid block of metal. Both unique and understated, the Kingsland frame comes in various metallic shades, but we fell in love with the gold.
