In 1978, Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche designed the first sunglasses with interchangeable lenses called the P’8478. For the 40-year anniversary, Porsche Design presents the legendary shades in a special “40Y” edition. They are limited to 1,978 pairs and feature a unique matte-black titanium frame with gold accents on the characteristic bridge, lens holders and nose pads. The new style comes in an exclusive travel box and with four additional sets of colored lenses.
The frame is manufactured from high quality lightweight titanium. The lenses are made of scratch-resistant polycarbonate and offer 100% UV A & B protection. The 5 interchangeable glass colors are grey gradient, blue gradi, blue/green mirror, mercury and brown.
