Everyone knows The Man With the Golden Gun, but how about the man with the golden sunglasses?
Luxury menswear brand Billionaire has raided its vaults to produce a pair of 24 carat gold shades that cost more than AED 50,000. Constructed using high-end Italian craftsmanship, the aviator frames have been made with 32 grams of pure gold – even the temples, nose pads, rims and screws are plated in the super luxurious metal.
As well as looking rather eye-catching, gold is also highly effective in blocking infrared radiation and so are handy for your eye health. These remarkable glasses are available at Billionaire boutiques across the Middle East but, seeing as they’re made from gold, you can’t just stroll into the store and buy a pair.
The landmark sunglasses are only available upon request and are made to measure. You can also add your name to the frame to make them unique – hence the unsurprisingly hefty price tag of AED 50,145. One word of advice: try not to sit on them.
