Mr Porter has launched a special sunglasses capsule for summer.

Called “The Archive Collection,” it features 14 of the online menswear retailer’s favorite eyewear brands, spanning 35 frames, and inspired by the best eyewear from each brand.

The new sunglasses collection includes archival greatest hits from Cubitts, Cutler and Gross, Eyevan 7285, Flatlist, Garrett Leight California Optical, Jacques Marie Mage, Kirk Originals, Moscot, Mr Leight, Native Sons, Oliver Peoples, and Persol, and sees the introduction of E.B. Meyrowitz and The Reference Library to the site, with styles ranging from gold-framed aviators through to lightweight titanium frames.

Standout pieces include an exclusive version of Moscot’s “Lemtosh” sunglasses, a limited-edition colorway of Flatlist’s popular “Hanky” frames, Jacques Marie Mage’s “Zephirin” sunglasses and a re-issue of Garrett Leight Optical California’s best-selling “Brooks” sunglasses, among others.

“A well-crafted pair of sunglasses is often the definitive sartorial touch that completes a man’s wardrobe,” said Sam Kershaw, buying director at Mr Porter. “We at Mr Porter are pleased to work with our favourite eyewear specialists to create a greatest hits assortment from their respective archives, and to offer our customers this exclusive selection going into the summer months ahead.”

“The Archive Collection” exclusive capsule, which retails between $165 and $1,290, is now available online and will be featured in a story on Monday, June 1st in Mr Porter’s online magazine, The Journal.
