CELEBRATING OUR PASSION FOR DESIGN

Porsche Design is an exclusive lifestyle brand founded in 1972 by Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche. His mission was to build a company that would carry the principles and the Porsche legend beyond the world of the automobile. All Porsche Design products stand for precision and perfection, intelligent functionality, a demanding, functional design and have an impressive level of technological innovation. In 1978, Prof. Ferdinand Alexander Porsche designed a spectacular pair of sunglasses which caused a sensation around the world: the P´8478 with an interchangeable glass mechanism. With them began the unique success story of Porsche Design Eyewear. True to our motto to always have an exceptional look, for 40 years we’ve been passionately designing spectacular classic eyewear that stands out through incomparable design.

P8478 - 40Y

Exclusive lifestyle, unique look. Of the 40Y anniversary edition of the first Porsche Design P´8478 sunglasses, there are only 1978 pairs worldwide. They have been intricately produced with an elegant black-gold look. The matt black frame creates an exciting contrast to the glossy gold lens clips and floating bridge. The P´8478 40Y-edition impresses with its specially manufactured special lens colours. The teardrop-shaped lenses can be exchanged in seconds according to the desired Design Style.
