The Essentials Collection is the foundation of AKILA – uncompromising modern reinterpretations of cult classic frames. Fashioned from plant-based acetate and stainless steel with Optical Class 1 nylon lenses, these frames are meticulously handcrafted to last a lifetime.
The AKILA® Raw Collection features raw unpolished acetate frames to reveal modern manufacturing artifacts and create a unique surface texture. This subtle textured finish gives each frame its own one-of-a-kind feel – no two pairs are identical.
AKILA Optical glasses come with clear, blue-light-blocking lenses to protect against eye strain and headaches from digital screens. All of our Optical frames are prescription-ready with lenses that can be swapped out by any optician.
We partner with friends, artists and brands we admire for their modern sensibilities to bring new ideas to market. By being inclusive rather than exclusive our goal is to give design power back to independent brands and in turn bringing better value to consumers.
