Freitag rarely does co-ops. But the brothers’ respect for ic! berlin’s screw-less constructions and the fact that they were given complete freedom in design was enough to make an exception. The two models «Dirty Lyle» (mirrored) and «Spider Mike» (matted) are a tribute to Sam Peckinpah’s 1978 truckin’ masterpiece «Convoy» with Kris Kristofferson.
A unique package, the Freitag edition of ic! berlin sunglasses are sold with a corresponding, unique Freitag sleeve cut from used truck tarps.
The sunglass design was developed by Daniel and Markus Freitag, inspired by seventies aviator shapes. It helps you spot that cop car when you’re driving into the sunset, it does a good job hiding your eyes and facial expressions from the nosy public if you’re famous, and it keeps the wind out of your eyes when you’re cycling (rather important, seeing Freitag bags have always been close to bike messenger circles).
