Quick Take: Art-Craft Optical is planning to debut its first-ever complete sun collection with a variety of lens offerings: The Art-Craft Classic sun collection.
Specifics: This debut sun collection celebrates three of Art-Craft Optical’s most enduring frame designs and takes them to a new level. Inspired by Art-Craft’s rich military and aviation history, the collection combines authenticity, heritage and modern technology. The launch collection includes two distinct aviator styles and one Sabre frame inspired by the current combat flight frame used in the Joint Strike Fighter. With the Sabre frame, Art-Craft Optical pays homage to family member Bruce Ritzenthaler, US Navy Pilot, who flew Sabre Jets in the Korean War in MiG ALLEY, Coral Sea Carrier. The third design is the Clubman, Art-Craft Optical’s classic frame. Frames include modern design and high-end details including jewelry-quality plating in 23K yellow gold, 23K rose gold, and ruthenium, as well as handmade Mazzucchelli acetate tips.
Selling Point: Made in the USA with heritage design and modern details, Art-Craft Optical’s sun collection is created with the same precision the team applies to the frames it supplies to all branches of the United States and NATO-aligned military.
