AKILA Apollo Inflated Tortoise Sunglasses
AKILA is an independent eyewear brand based in Los Angeles focused on handmade unisex sunglasses. The label’s mission is to provide eco-friendly designs and practices that utilize a plant-based acetate containing fibers from cotton and wood pulp. The combination of these elements provides a natural bioplastic that can withstand wear and offer a luxe finish. Their collection takes inspiration from traditional eyewear silhouettes that are timeless and functional.
The Inflated series reimagines classic AKILA frames using extra-thick cellulose acetate, with a rounded finish to create “blown up” avant-garde silhouettes inspired by Austrian artist Erwin Wurm’s Fat Car sculptures.
