Eyeglass cases that are stylish, chic and easy to pop into a handbag are the speciality of ANY DI, the Munich based designer of unusually sleek cases and bags. The Sun Covers are made from genuine leather, and the interiors are lined in a Microfiber material that is soft and pliant. Case interiors are padded as well, so lenses are protected from dust and scratches. Greige Nubuck is especially smart lined with bright orange. The efficient Sun Covers also have a strap that can be linked to your handbag or belt-loop. Discover more of ANY DI’s super Sun Covers in solid and print leathers at www.any-di.com and at OPTI-Munich.
