Aussie sunnies from the 1980s get makeover
Australian Sunski sunglasses re-launched in four color combinations
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 8 March, 2013 : - - Making its first appearance in more than 25 years since it was last seen on the beaches of Australia, the Sunski brand is back thanks to Tom Stewart and Michael Charley, two San Francisco based product designers who have set out to reinvigorate this treasure from the past.
'We wanted to stay true to the vintage Australian Sunski style by introducing four brilliant color combinations, all of which are specially crafted to appeal to anyone who enjoys the outdoors and is looking for something stylish and affordable,” says Stewart.
What makes this product so unique is the vibrant lens colors and impeccable attention to detail. All frames are made of hand-polished polycarbonate and are equipped with aluminum hinges. The Sunski lenses are polarized and offer 100% UV protection alongwith scratch resistant mirror coating. Each pair of sunglasses comes with a Sunski micro-fiber case packaged in a sturdy branded box—great for traveling or carrying along to engage in your favorite outdoor activity.
Launching the company just this year, the Sunski duo’s initial round of funding came from a successful launch on Kickstarter, one of the most popular platforms to raise money for creative-based companies. Impressively, Stewart and Charley raised over $157,000 in less than one month’s time, and the pace has only since quickened with close to 10,000 pairs of Sunskis sold. Tom and Michael don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.
“We want the Sunskis to be not only a companion for those who enjoy the outdoors, but also represent a brand that can help people find inspiration to live out their own passions doing amazing things outside all over the globe,” says Stewart.
