Stella McCartney’s cruelty-free fashion message already stretches from her covetable handbags to the tips of her vegan high heels. This spring, the designer is extending her eco-friendly reach with the launch of a sunglass collection.
The collection of three acetate and two metal frames makes use of a different type of plastic than that used in standard glasses frames. Whereas most plastic is derived from petroleum, McCartney’s blend includes a 54% contribution from castor oil seeds, a renewable resource.
‘The greatest challenge was the amount of time that was spent on research and testing to get the best quality product possible with the highest performance in terms of resistance, while still maintaining the style and finish we always try to achieve,’ McCartney said.
