Looking back on the 1970 and 1980s, culture was flipped on its head; and the Barkley is inspired by this time. An acetate take on the angular style that's dominated metals, this frame is a little bit square with hints of geometric lines making the Barkley feel both familiar and new. Basically, if Barkley was a saying it would be “Catch you on the flip side!”
This frame is made from acetate, a natural cotton (yep, they are plant based) that is comfortable but also very malleable, ideal for heating and cooling to get the perfect fit. We source all our acetate from an industry renowned company with over 150 years of experience in producing premium quality acetate.
