Stella McCartney Eyewear Spring Summer 2021 is a visionary perspective for a new era. This season takes visual cues from our Summer 2021 ready-to-wear collection – expressing a desire to reconnect with nature, travel and the joy of athleticism as escapism. It is also our most sustainable eyewear offering to date.
Key moments from our McCartney A to Z Manifesto: Summer 2021 Show include an eccentric bamboo-topped style and the geometric sportiness of square-framed, circular-lensed sunglasses. Taking cues from our ready-to-wear collection’s athletic escapism, this season (re)introduces sporty shapes, our signature flat-topped styles and iconic Falabella chain details.
Sustainable materials embody our eco point of view, with UL-certified frames created from bio-acetate derived from wood and cotton seeds alongside plant-based plasticisers. Bio-lenses help reduce our use of oil-based plastics, made instead from natural and renewable materials like castor oil. For the first time ever, Stella Kids Eyewear will also be made with bio-acetate.
New this season are vegan, croc-embossed hard eyewear cases, also inspired by the Summer 2021 ready-to-wear bag collection. Each contains a cleaning cloth, leaflet and hang tag created with recycled materials as well as a mini-grip and temple covers made from recycled paper.
