Activist Eyewear

‘Spring is here and it’s time to talk SUNGLASSES’ !!! 

Designed in Brooklyn and crafted in Japan, Anthony Codispoti’s Activist Eyewear is a new addition to the world of lifestyle accessories infusing old-world craftsmanship with modern cutting-edge technology.

Activist Sunglasses: Wayfarers, Aviators, Lennons

Believing in workmanship and quality over mass-production, Activist crafts only 718 pieces (in honour of their hometown area code) of these limited edition sunglasses, designed in classic vintage styling with a avant-garde twist. Have a look at this video.

I was glad to get acquainted with Anthony and know more about the brand. He personally sent me an Activist Eyewear June 2011 lookbook customised with my name on it. It pleases one when brands take such small initiatives to connect with consumers.

Activist’s styles are based on the classics: Wayfarer, Aviator and Lennons. I love the Lennon-styled sunglasses, his Buddy-Holly glasses which I had also mentioned in my earlier blogpost: John Lennon – My Style Icon.

Seemingly inspiring is Lennon that Activist has taken these classic styles and represented them in a city-slicker styled brandbook with 3 distinct looks – The East-Coast, The Casual and The LumberJack look.  Preserving its craftsmanship and promoting its futuristic eyewear through an innovative cardboard packaging, Activist Eyewear has nevertheless emerged as a stylish yet rustic-futuristic eyewear brand in a short span of time.

What makes Activist’s sunglasses one of the most sought after eyewear by trendhunters? Is it the unique set of frames, the Split Fit arm or the Oleophobic Seal? Listen from Anthony himself on Activist Eyewear’s Radio Commercial.
