Sunpocket date back to the late 1970s when its foldable sunglasses became coveted by French skiers. Over the following years it gained a European following, thanks to its ski and surf heritage. Swedish entrepreneur Jacob Hoglund discovered his father’s vintage Sunpockets at the family’s ski cottage, fell in love and relaunched the brand in 2011. Made in a factory in Mauritius, Sunpocket sunglasses combine style with practicality. The design is exceptional, as well as being small enough when folded to fit in a pocket, shorter temples ensure a firmer fit at the front, so they don’t fall off during sports. Old frames are reissued and applauded, and when named after the world’s picturesque locations, coloured crystal lightweight frames, or lenses with UV protection, some mirrored, make perfect sense.
