The Electric Accessory Sunglass Test

Eco-futurism for your eyeballs.

Typically, when you see someone donning a sleek pair of sunnies, you don’t think to yourself, “I wonder if those are made of plants.”

Or maybe you do? No judgment. But if this is, in fact, on the backlog of your mental wanderings, you can now check it off your cognitive bingo card thanks to the advanced eco-technologies being applied by Electric Eyewear.

Manufactured in Italy, each Electric silhouette offers highbrow appeal without reaching to the depths of your bitcoin account. Whether you’re looking for an everyday pair or something more eminent, you can find a variety of frames featuring performance-focused sustainable materials and premium quality lenses. Have a gander for yourself at some high voltage styles that caught our eye(s)… 

Zeke Lau’s other ride-or-die: the Crasher in Gloss Black.

Crasher – $200

Like an LBD for your face, the Crasher offers an edited look that goes with absolutely everything. But don’t assume its versatility detracts from its statement-making ability; this style’s bold but edgy silhouette is the opposite of basic, making it an ideal accessory when you want to feel hidden from the world but also like you run it. Available in a standard size as well as a larger, oversized option for full stunna feels, the Crasher meets all ensemble needs, whether black-tie or tie-dye. 2022 Tour surfer and TUS forever-champion Ezekiel Lau exhibited the former when he effortlessly styled the Crasher 49 with his impeccably tailored, island-chic wedding look.

No shirt, no squinting, no John, no problem.

JJF12 – $220

If your sunglasses don’t have removable eyecups, are they even protecting you? Designed with the forces of nature in mind (wind, water, sun, John John), the JJF12 is setting a new spectacular standard for safety from the harshest of conditions. Despite their high functionality, however, these signature specs look far from outlandish, providing all-around coverage in the eldest Florence’s trademark unfussy aesthetic. They seem to suit Jack Robbo just as well.

Versatile design capable of doing anything…or nothing at all.

Oak – $250

Just like that perfectly worn-in tee you refuse to retire, the Oak can go anywhere and everywhere. Available in seven fresh finishes, the Oak’s rounded shape states, “Yes, I am as smart and sophisticated as I look,” while the blue-light-blocking lenses protect the precious organs behind them, validating that visual sentiment. Got bachelor/ette duties? The sartorially understated Matte Tort is your go-to. Trying to get that hot barista’s attention? Gloss. Black. All. Day. Rock them inside for extra mysto appeal. Unlike that gradually disintegrating garment of yours, however, Electric’s enduring frames are designed to last and will do just that.
