Created in close collaboration with the inimitable Wei Koh founder and creative energy behind both The Rake and Revolution Media Brands Bandit is a frame that embraces the spirit of Paul Newman’s legendary aviators while reimagining the silhouette with the introduction of a series of contemporary touches. These frames are the first to feature a flexible sports nose piece and anti-slip inserts within the ear tips.

It’s hard to envision a more iconic sunglasses frames in the world of Hollywood icons than the Paul Newman aviator. Starting with this as our baseline Wei Koh and I re-imagined how this frame could be upscaled and made relevant for a guy who enjoys his weekends, travels extensively, and embraces fun as a must have part of his weekly routine. Oh and the name BANDIT?
Well; they are named in honour of Wei’s canine best friend.
