Fresh, innovative and new to Fiftytwo Showroom is the latest collection “SS-DOUZE” from Waiting For the Sun. Created by a group of three friends, this unique and modern European based sunglasses brand reinvents classic vintage aesthetic with modern Parisian sophistication. These unisex frames are 100% handcrafted from Rose wood and bamboo,and best of all- eco-friendly!
Julien Tual, Antoine Mocquard and Alexandre Rabineau make up the trio behind the brand. They refer to themselves as “modern people” who are aware of their social responsibility to take care of the world. Opting to use all renewable materials that, unlike petrol-based plastic (traditionally used in sunglasses), leave less of a trace on the environment. Although being eco friendly is important to the designers, it is not the only motivation behind the collection. Choosing to work with wood for its interesting characteristics including its ability to change color with perspiration and sunlight has introduced a natural, lightweight and innovative concept.
