The classic and the contemporary come together, with a timeless and even more appealing touch, in the latest Cartier Eyewear Collection including a sophisticated selection of sunglasses and optical frames balancing savoir-faire and creativity. Inspired by the famous wristwatch crafted for aviator Santos Dumont, an emblematic series of men’s and women’s styles elevate the Maison’s visual codes with a daring yet effortless approach.

Consistent with the Santos core aesthetic, frames are characterized by confident shapes in metal, all luxuriously finished with signature screws and geometrical temple tips referencing the original elements of the watch. Moreover, the men’s collection unveils a new elevated construction with soft leather blinders. The female styles, launched for the first time within the Santos theme, feature lightweight profiles with beautifully nuanced gradient lenses that turn each model into a true object of desire conceived for contemporary women drawn towards a highly recognizable and sophisticated design. As part of Kering Eyewear’s new Blue & Beyond offer, selected styles are also integrated with dualinnovation lenses combining a blue light reduction treatment with photochromic technology. When worn indoors, these smart lenses optimize visual comfort by minimizing the impact of high-energy light from digital screens. In addition, these branded luxury lenses protect eyes from direct sunlight by darkening in color when worn outside.
