Iconic Australian sunglasses brand designs the exclusive limited edition ‘The Prince’ inspired by resort
Holidays and retreats can offer up a reprieve from our hectic lifestyles. And in some cases, they can also provide inspiration. The idyllic and tranquil grounds of the W Maldives, provided to be the perfect place to inspire the creation of a new and highly-enticing pair of limited edition sunglasses.
W Maldives, part of W Hotels Worldwide, has partnered with leading Australian sunglasses brand Le Specs to create the exclusive limited edition shades. The vibrant blue model was inspired by the glowing colours of W Maldives and shot onsite across the sands of the exotic island surroundings that perfectly reflect the spirit of a tropical escape and the dream-like energy of summer that the Le Specs brand embodies.
The Prince model is also part of the new 22 style collection that introduces a new colour palette speaking to a mood of endless vacation, demonstrated perfectly by W Maldives’ stylish and playful surroundings.
“This season was all about experimenting with colour in more exotic ways – sunglasses that you could imagine wearing anywhere from Cuba, to the Whitsundays and Maldives,” explains Le Specs designer Hamish Tame. “The palette is hot and balmy, and the shapes make you feel confident. From a technical point of view I really wanted to focus on coloured metal finishes combined with translucent materials, which feels really fresh and new.”
The limited-edition The Prince style will be sold exclusively at W Maldives from Feb 14, 2017 and online from Jan 17, 2017.
Guests, who will book their holiday at W Maldives, will also receive exclusive discount voucher codes to shop for the new 2017 collection on lespecs.com between 14 February and 31 March 2017.
