As a self-professed “sunglass connoisseur,” Nine One Seven founder and professional skateboarder Alex Olsen connected with AKILA to create something that embodied both brands’ affinity for fresh looks and classic-inspired design.

The result is Noslos, a chunky rectangular frame influenced concurrently by streetwear and high-end style. Its slightly oversized silhouette is finished with triple-riveted frame ends and temples to add subtle flare and extra durability for your next skate run.

 

The officially licensed AKILA x Beatles collection features two new styles inspired by the band’s classic self-titled album & give nods to The Beatles’ mod era, characterized by clean looks and timeless silhouettes.

Keith Haring was one of the most renowned of the young artists, filmmakers, and performers whose work responded to urban street culture of the 1980s.

He was known for his iconic line work which continues to inspire street muralists and pop artists alike, and was featured in more than 100 exhibitions during his life. Keith believed art should be readily accessible to the public, coining the phrase "Art is for everybody."

AKILA has created a collection of eyewear that pays tribute to his distinct style and celebrates his legacy of making great designs available to all.

Framed Ewe

Framed Ewe was one of the first stores to carry AKILA frames when we started out. The two brands’ mutual admiration led them to finally team up on the first AKILA For FRAMED EWE collection, featuring new versions of AKILA’s popular Ascent and Dillinger sunglasses. The updated designs feature 3 new exclusive colorways and transition lenses that can be worn during the day or night. Subtle hues and detailed construction define the collection, reflecting both companies’ eye for quality and exquisite design.

KkCo
Lizard is both brands’ reinvention of a traditional sports frame, putting a fresh twist with unexpected colors on a longtime favorite style. The frames are influenced by vintage fly fishing sunglasses, featuring a lightweight and curved wraparound design punctuated with polarized lenses, custom-drilled eyelets, and KkCo’s trademark piercing detail through the left temple.
