Summer is great because not only does it mean warmer weather, it also means you can waste time looking for awesome new sunglasses to add to your collection and, truth be told, we’re pretty sure you’re not going to find many better than these ace looking Shwood x Shaper Studios Sunglasses.
A collaboration between The Coolector regulars, Shwood, and Shaper Studios, the world’s first DIY surfboard workshop, this eye-catching eyewear certainly has plenty of cool features that make it worthy of being your next sunglasses purchase. The Shwood x Shaper Studios Sunglasses is titled the ‘Surf Resin Collection‘ and celebrates the handmade authenticity and tangible grittiness of both brands’ carefully hand-crafted products.
Superb Surf Style
Needless to say, Shwood only collaborate with brands of a similar mindset and that’s what bought Shaper Studios to their door and the rest, as they say, is history. The supremely cool, laid-back aesthetic of these Shwood x Shaper Studios Sunglasses comes from the shared values of both brands and a clear appreciation of a high quality, handcrafted products and the beauty that is inherent with it.
A real attention to detail is what truly sets these Shwood x Shaper Studios Sunglasses apart from the crowd as is an appreciation of well-made, handcrafted goods and this is something which is reflected in every detail of the collaboration. Put together with the same non-toxic, bio-epoxy resin that Shaper Studios uses to glass surfboards; the collaboration delivers an array of sunglasses which take their design inspiration from the Pacific coastline and surf culture of Southern California.
The collection consists of 4 pieces of eyewear – one, a full-frame combination of resin and genuine wood and this striking pair is joined by three Italian acetate frames with resin accents – so you’re sure to find a pair that fits your style tastes within this fantastic collaboration between Shwood and Shaper Studios.
As you would expect of Shwood, only quality materials are used in this collaboration with Shaper Studios and this includes colour matched, polarised Carl Zeiss lenses, custom bio-based surf resin and top quality woods throughout. The colourways on each of the four pairs of sunglasses in the collaboration are borrowed from the Californian coastline and deliver a stylish, understated finish that we’re loving here at Coolector HQ.
If, like us, you’re currently on the hunt for a new pair of sunglasses and fancy something that little bit out of the ordinary, you’ll not be left disappointed by this excellent collaboration between Shwood and Shaper Studios. Devilishly dapper, impeccably well made and visually unparalleled, there really is a lot to like with these sunglasses and we’re definitely hoping to get our hands on a pair sooner rather than later. Whilst the sun’s still out.
