:: Spotlight :: Arnette 2007/2008 Eyewear Collection

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

In 1992 a Californian surfer expressed his love for design and sunglasses by starting a small brand named ARNETTE from his garage. Today, ARNETTE is a global leader in action sport and youth lifestyle eyewear with a loyal following. This is eyewear for people who live outside the box; who create their own trends through their lifestyles. They are not just surfers, skateboarders or snowboarders; they are for anyone who shares the values of self-belief, pushing the envelope and daring to live their passions.

ARNETTE eyewear is the result of combining high quality material with street-savvy design. The new Summer collection features styles ranging from stream line wrap sunglasses to larger statement pieces with bold use of colour.

International Surfer Jamie O’Brien loves ARNETTE eyewear - “ARNETTE approached me about my ideal shades and after sampling the products and learning about Arnette the choice was clear. This is the sunglass I want to see the world through."


The Wrath, Myth and Undercover are now available at leading eyewear retailers.
Prices range from $129 to $210.


Recently an ARNETTE sponsored “In Stereo” production was launched at the Oxford Art Factory in Sydney, with guest musical performance by Rubber Johnson.
