The custom shades are rendered in Saraiva’s signature pink-and-blue color palette and feature “Mr Andre” on the lenses. An original artwork of his called “Mountains of Peace” also appears on the right lens, but it only becomes visible when condensed or breathed upon. The full piece was also spray painted across all the boxes, making each one unique.
The Nagata Speed Blade is a lightweight performance silhouette designed for running. Weighing only 21 grams, the shades feature a hypoallergenic nosepad mounted with titanium screws to go along with the titanium core. The polycarbonate lenses are shatterproof, water and oil repellent, and have a variable light transmission for a variety of conditions.
Saraiva’s collaboration is limited to 300 pieces and is available on District Vision’s site now for $249.
