Theo Pays Homage to Religious Architecture

Modernist churches designed by his grandfather were the inspiration behind Tim Van Steenbergen’s new sunglass collection for Theo. Another source of inspiration for this new series was the heavy black acetate sunglasses of the 50s and 60s.

‘René’ consists of four models, each available in two versions: a full black model and a black/transparent variation. Each model has geometric details in a primary colour. Three models are distinctly feminine, one is more masculine. The metal temples are not solid but have a structure that refers back to the concrete stained-glass windows of – you guessed it – those modernist churches. In a limited release, a total of just 150 sets were made available to the world.
