If you like watches, there’s a good chance you are also interested in acquiring other quality accessories. This is the assumption U-Boat designer Italo Fontana has made as part of his “Freedom in Creation” ethos.
While watches are the starting point and main focus for Italo, he decided to develop concepts in different sectors to include accessories such as belts, pens, and now sunglasses. The U-BOAT sunglasses range was unveiled at Baselworld 2016, with each pair featuring the same unique identity of the brand.
Entirely designed by Italo and manufactured in Italy, the sunglasses come in six versions. All of them are characterized in the frame by different combinations of materials – materials normally to be found in watches, such as bronze and black titanium. The temples are covered in various colored materials such as white or black python skin, black, green, white or dark brown crocodile leather. The lenses are polarized and are guaranteed 100% UVA/UVB protection. Unsure whether they’re cool? Take the ‘Officially Bhanu Approved’ symbol as your guide.
