Sustainable eyewear: Sea2see for aw 20/21

New releases: setting the agenda for timeless, comfortable designs in recycled marine plastic

In a climate that continues to make sustainability a more pressing priority in fashion, independent eyewear label Sea2see is achieving notoriety as eyewear’s eco disruptor, wherever it goes. As well as their social enterprise initiatives in Africa for the collection of waste – creating a new source of income for local communities – the brand has recently launched a special edition ‘Chinook’ Collection of sunglasses supporting @searchingforchinook – an initiative to protect the last 72 Southern resident orcas. Sea2see also works closely with leading retailers around the world to promote their “seastainable” values and initiatives for recycling marine plastic…among them is the Canadian chain New Look Eyewear whose latest campaign for Sea2see features the vegan activist and eco influencer Jessie Nadeau.

Murano by Sea2see – a bold construction with key hole bridge

A keyhole bridge detail gives model Murano a distinctive retro design in line with the trend for timeless styles. The frame has an oval eyeshape with a thick rim. Colours include matte black (above), blue and matte havana.

Santorini by Sea2see – a classic round shape with narrow flattering frame shaping

The intellectual round shape model Santorini is a new entry in the autumn/winter line and comes in a choice of bold colour combinations of red/blue or retro-inspired classics such as black or tortoise (pictured).

Sea2see’s contemporary, lightweight, robust frames are made from the company’s own recycled material deriving from marine plastic and collected by Sea2see’s initiative – established in Europe and West Africa over the last four years. The collection is made in Italy and is now available worldwide through independent retailers and leading chains such as Synsam in Scandinavia (www.synsam.se) and  New Look in Canada (www.newlook.ca).
