Founded in 2007 by Bill Barton and Patty Perreira, Barton Perreira sunglasses are made meticulously in Japan over the course of, not days, but several weeks. Zylonite acetate is tumbled and twice-polished for exceptional smoothness and combined with a lightweight metal core and super sharp lenses. The result is an inimitable pair of sunglasses worthy of James Bond’s face. So it’s no coincidence that the new ‘007’ movie, No Time to Die, features Barton Perreira frames prominently. But you don’t have to be well-versed in firearms and espionage to don a pair of the silver-screen frames.
The Bond-approved sunnies come in three classic shapes that come with their own cleaning cloths and cases. And if ‘007’ inscribed temple tips aren’t enough, the shades also come with certificates of authenticity. Not inexpensive, the frames range in price from $440 to $625, a reflection of top-tier craftsmanship. Both the movie and the slick sunglasses are out now.
