Swedish, London-based label CMMN SWDN have tapped eyewear brand Ace & Tate for a range of sunglasses that pay homage to ’90s road cycling and retrofuture concepts.

The latest eyewear collaboration pays particular attention to the style notes that gave ’90s road cycling its unique aesthetic. Observing cycling legends such as Greg LeMond and Lance "Le Boss" Armstrong (which the frames are named after), the eyewear is made with a nylon nose bridge and arrives in a selection of electrifying colorways. A head strap and fanny pack arrive with every purchase.

It's hard to pinpoint the exact moment when the bright colors and tight fits of road cycling began to trend. Perhaps it was when Marine Serre made her stretch nylon jersey cycling catsuit from her women's collection available for men, perhaps it was just the natural evolution of the ’90s sportswear revival. Racer sunglasses, in particular — the type that wrap around the head — are having a moment right now, with the likes of Balenciaga and Prada releasing their own versions for SS19.

The new collaboration is available now for approximately $148 via the link below.
