Mar 22, 2022

Stuttgart. Following the Mercedes-Benz glasses presented in January, the eyewear manufacturer ic! berlin is now presenting its collection of corrective eyewear and sunglasses, developed in cooperation with Mercedes-AMG. In these models, powerful rectangular shapes, strong colour contrasts and refined details make a clear statement. The collection includes three pairs of unisex corrective glasses and two pairs of men's sunglasses, all of which are extremely comfortable to wear.

In addition to the lens, the AMG logo is also engraved on the frame temples. 

The following models are available to choose from:

The smaller but nevertheless very striking rectangular shape features a dynamic detail: the forward-curved bridge is reminiscent of a spoiler and gives the glasses an architectural line. Available in bright matt yellow, or AMG red or AMG blue depending on your choice, the glasses provide eye-catching colour contrasts. Thanks to the sporty design, this model is also well suited for teenagers and young adults.

The corrective glasses are available in three colour combinations: matt black with AMG red, gun metal with AMG yellow and pearl with AMG blue.

With its eye-catchingrectangular shape and a luminous acetate front in rich AMG orange with gold accent in the hinge area, the AMG 07 model is a design statement! For fans of more subdued tones, there is a model with a semi-transparent grey acetate front and gold accents in the hinge area.
