I love the shape and faceted design of the Apollo. And the shade of yellow is bold but warm and playful.
I took them to my optician to have rx lenses added and they were all raving about them (and they carry a lot of expensive prestige brands).
I like the way they feel in my hand and perfectly sit on my face. Sometimes I set them down just to stare at them. They are that beautiful. Sculpted with care and passion, they make you feel special every time you put them on.
Extremely well-crafted, stylish, beautiful packaging, couldn’t be happier!
The best sunglasses!
