Australia’s AM Eyewear know sunglasses are more than a style accessory but rather an indispensable part of daily life and have become innovative players in the modern frame game with their fresh and directional designs.
Actively hijacking the local market, last year AM Eyewear became the first-ever brand of sunglasses to merit their own show at Australian Fashion Week.

April 77 was launched in 2002 by frenchman Bric Partouche.
