Maybach Wheels out a Line of Sunglasses
We don't want to say it, but we must: Maybach is probably doing better with its lifestyle accessories than it is with its cars. And with some undeniably attractive options on its designer menu, you don't need to go far in search of an explanation. The line has been joined by a range of ten spectacle frames and eight different sunglasses, produced under license by German optics company IVKO.
Details on the hand-made glasses are as lavish as those found inside a Maybach 62, with piano-lacquered wood, natural horn, carbon fiber and leather-trimmed arms, titanium, 18-carat white, yellow, and rose gold frames. Lenses come from those quality glassmakers over at Zeiss.
For something more bespoke you can give your shades the coachbuilt treatment with Maybach's Individual Collection, which "will cater to various special requests and customization choices and features 18K carat gold details." Sadly, there still won't be enough room here to add a refrigerator or humidor, but you might find space for rhinos and emus to make the contributions. You'll be able to purchase them come October, when the ready-to-wear range lands at retail.
