The latest Ron Arad PQ Eyewear collection is distinctive and dynamic. Designer and architect Ron Arad plays the role of sunglasses creator in this classic collection with a modern twist. PQ, a London-based company, presents the 'A-frame' and 'Corbs' collections by the Israeli designer.

These playful frames are inspired by classic spectacle styles that transcend generations. Ron's 'Corbs' collection features shades sculpted from acetate that use unconventional hinges which are more functional than the common pin and socket seen in traditional eyewear.

These inventive frames eliminate the problem of hinges getting loose and take cues from patterns seen in animal vertebrae. Ron's vibrant designs are beautifully sculptural and reminiscent of his architectural works. They flow beautifully and have a stunning aesthetic while being detailed with the utmost quality and care.

These sunglasses are the epitome of flow and unity in design. Simplicity is key and dynamic shapes pay homage to famed architect Le Corbusier's iconic glasses.
