AKILA is an independent eyewear label based in Los Angeles that specialises in handcrafted unisex sunglasses at ""anti-industry prices"". Characterised by a resolutely relaxed streetwear attitude, the AKILA models combine exceptional craftsmanship at rebellious prices. The timeless design contrasts with bold colours and is bursting with creativity. By opening the doors of the European market to the creative L.A.-based label, Mister Spex proudly introduce the latest Californian streetwear fashion to Europe.
AKILA frames are handcrafted from plant-based acetate and stainless steel with class 1 optical nylon lenses. Each model undergoes careful design, engineering and production processes to ensure that all eyewear meets the highest quality standards. Each pair of sunglasses takes over 90 days to produce and requires almost 100 steps from start to finish. Only first-class materials, e.g. cellulose acetate from Mazzucchelli, are used for the frames. Acetate is an excellent and environmentally friendly alternative to "normal" plastic. It allows a unique colour palette, which is different from conventional plastics. From classic to gaudy to wildly patterned, all eyewear fans who love extraordinary designs will fall in love with this brand.
AKILA is a creative melting pot and offers a platform for brands and designers to realise their visionary ideas and supports them every step of the way with expertise, technical assistance and production facilities. This enables its partners to reach new levels of creativity and develop outstanding products of remarkable quality. AKILA is inclusive rather than exclusive. Together with its partners, the focus is on making the most of everything and advance the visionary ideas of friends, artists and brands through close collaboration. AKILA is on a mission to give independent labels the influence they deserve in order to offer customers an exceptional shopping experience.
