A chunky pilot silhouette inspired by all things aviation, Bessie fills a gap in our current sun range offering. With a larger overall frame width, this frame serves as a trendy statement piece for men and women alike. A perfect oversized look for the customer with a smaller face.

    acetate

    This frame is made using acetate

    This frame is made from acetate, a natural cotton (yep, they are plant based) that is comfortable but also very malleable, ideal for heating and cooling to get the perfect fit. We source all our acetate from an industry renowned company with over 150 years of experience in producing premium quality acetate.

    sunglasses

    Polarized lenses

    Our sunglasses feature polarized lenses as standard for non-prescription sunglasses. That’s right, it’s not a typo: they include polarized sun lenses.

    Use Protection

    All frames come with a complimentary case to keep your glasses safe from dust and scratches on-the-go. They also come with a soft microfibre lens cloth for when they need a deep clean.

    Let’s get technical

    Our German engineered barrelled hinges have been tested to more than 100,000 uses! That’s right, after 100,000 tests they were still working in perfect order. We always use the highest hinge-barrel count a frame will allow to add strength and to ensure your frames last their longest life with you.

    It’s all in the details

    Our custom wire cores feature our BN wordmark, face shape engravings or wave pattern (a homage to our coastal roots) and are designed in Sydney, German engineered and crafted in China.
