Y2K-Themed Sunglasses Pack

AKIRA and PLEASURES' Vision Program Reference Retro Internet Aesthetics

— May 19, 2021 — Lifestyle
As summer meets us around the corner, PLEASURES works in collaboration with AKIRA on the new Vision Program collection of sunglasses. This time around, the duo focuses on the era of Y2K, boasting a unique retro theme. It nods to early Internet design aesthetics that were prominent during the time.

The special eyewear sets mark a transitional time that eased from the 90s and into the 00s. The iconic Reflec model is wrapped in a sustainable acetate material that is then detailed with PLEASURES branding on the sides. It is offered in the color options of either Black Sparkle or Pink Tortoise. The Method sunglasses are the brands' iteration of a classic wayfarer with sleek arms.
