Bentley Luxury Eyewear a Hit

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Crewe, United Kingdom – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Orders for the limited edition Mulsanne series of solid gold sunglasses are much higher than expected, Bentley Motors and luxury eyewear manufacturer Estede are happy to report. The strong current interest for these luxe shades comes from the main markets of Hong Kong, China and Russia.

Bentley Motors began its collaboration with Estede a year ago, and this first collection of Bentley Eyewear blends Estede’s wealth of experience in crafting exceptionally high-end eyewear and Bentley Motors’ world-renowned sophisticated design language.

Boasting a style that is both timeless and modern, the elegantly simple shades are available in 18K solid gold (white, pink or yellow), silver palladium and platinum. The characteristic Bentley “B” set in hand-polished enamel coating, and the carefully engraved surfaces, reflecting the quilted leather design of the Mulsanne vehicle, speak to the glasses’ exquisite design inspiration.

All the frames and sunglasses are made to order, individually numbered and limited to 100 pieces per color variation. The Bentley Eyewear collection uses special sunglass lenses, which not only offer 100 percent UV protection but also reflect the latest in lens technology with state-of-the-art lens coatings to improve visibility in strong light conditions.

The attractive eyewear case fits perfectly into the new flagship Bentley Mulsanne and comes in all the leather colors that Bentley Motors offers. The precious metals, combined with the handcrafted workmanship, make the frames special, while the fusion of craftsmanship and technology, not to mention the aspect of individualization, makes Bentley frames and sunglasses truly unique.

Although the current main markets for the glasses are Hong Kong, China and Russia, Bentley and Estede expect to expand distribution to the UK, the U.S. and the Middle East by the end of the year.
