The hardest part of summer is more than often settling on the right frames, but this season Bonnie Clyde has you covered.
Born in a retired-movie-theater-turned-warehouse of Downtown Los Angeles, Bonnie Clyde strikes the perfect balance between high-quality frames, impressive hues, and wearable confidence. With form serving as the foundation on which frames are built, it is fitting that the brand offers a wide range of unique shapes constructed from with Mazzuchelli Italian acetate and custom stainless steel core wire and hinges. Of course, we all want to keep our blinkers safe while looking good, so each of the frames are fitted with scratch-resistant nylon lenses with anti-glare.
Bonnie Clyde Eyewear – despite still being a young brand established in 2016 – maintains a rich personal history, with Designer Jon Yuan's parents having owned a wholesale sunglasses business. Through Bonnie Clyde Yuan and his brother are keeping this legacy alive. With the brand maintaining a commitment to providing gender-neutral eyewear, the name Bonnie Clyde was fitting, with the confidence and rebellious nature of the famous duo striking strong parallels to the overall direction of the brand. The choice to drop the '&' flows from Yuan's perspective of fashion being a mode of true self-expression, and as such should be unisex, thus making the female and male names a singular entity.
