Outerknown and OTIS Eyewear Release New Collaboration

OTIS x OUTERKNOWN sunglass collection

OTIS and Outerknown share a goal to close the loop with sustainable style you can be proud to wear. These collaboration frames take extra inspiration from where water meets land, contrasting their textures, form, and color. Designed with this vibrant duality in mind, each style has been created with certified biodegradable Eco-Acetate and endlessly recyclable mineral glass lenses, paying further respect to the ecosystems that inspire us all.

This latest collection is made using certified biodegradable Eco-Acetate (raw materials derived from cotton seed and wood pulp -100% recyclable and 100% biodegradable) and endlessly recyclable mineral glass lenses. The styles in this collection were inspired by the stunning visuals in Western Australia, where OTIS Eyewear originates from. That vivid duality where the water and earth meet, such as the red dirt of the Kimberley colliding with the turquoise water of the Indian Ocean, can be seen in this new collection in a way that pays respect to the ecosystem. Every style in the collection comes with signature accents to mark the special nature of the release, a protective carry case, plastic-free packaging, and a recycled cloth wrap.
