New York based eyewear label illesteva will launch a limited-edition sunglass style in collaboration with the Michael Jackson Estate for Summer 2017. Inspired by the iconic sunglasses worn by Michael Jackson during his 1984 Victory Tour, the collaboration celebrates the 35th anniversary of world’s best-selling album, Thriller.
The original aviator style frame reimagined by illesteva, was created using a single sheet lens. The gold mirrored face is accented with lightweight gold temples and engraved with Jackson’s signature. The limited release offers 200 numbered frames commemorating the King of Pop.
“Michael Jackson was and is an Icon. It’s an honor to have been approached by his team and to work with his estate. We are excited for the launch” says Daniel Silberman, CEO of illesteva.
illesteva x Michael Jackson limited edition sunglasses retail for $240 and will be available for purchase at select illesteva stores and on illesteva.com.
