Sunpocket Original – Carry the Summer with You
The story of Sunpocket began in late 1970s France where the foldable shades that mix function and style were leapt upon by adventurous individuals with an eye for great design. The fact that you could fold them away in your pocket was a hugely innovative step at the time, leading to the brand gaining big recognition, and fast. During the 1980s Sunpocket became enormously popular throughout Europe as well as further afield. During their hey-days you could spot the unique designs on the ski slopes of the Alps and throughout the continent, they then slipped out of the public eye. Since 2011 they have re-launched as a Swedish brand and the success has been consistently upwards. You no longer simply find them on the ski slopes, but also on the streets and beaches – showing that they have become more than simply a yuppie skiing staple. They are seen as a must-have accessory on the streets of the big fashion cities and there’s nothing handier for the beach than a pair of shades you can carry in your pocket. They have proved their punch power by forming big collaborations with the like of A Bathing Ape in recent times. There’s no need to compensate fashion for function either as Sunpocket manages to blend both splendidly.
