Pared eyewear is true to its name – a collection of handmade sunglasses grounded in the fundamentals of clean lines, smooth shapes and lasting comfort. Pared’s design philosophy is based on symbiosis – the idea that contrasting influences can combine to create truly unique experiences. Each Pared style balances a sense of old and new, masculine and feminine, classic and modern. Distinct yet cohesive materials, from metals and crystals to leather and stones, add depth and detail to sculpted acetate frames.
Creative director Samantha Stevenson's organic, sensory approach to design takes cues from travel, art and architecture. Collections are inspired by places, memories and eras that evoke endless summers and eternal blue skies. Pared has established a cult following amongst style influencers, artists and celebrities across the globe. Known for balancing a commitment to wearability with pushing the boundaries of conventional design, Pared collections are always anticipated for their quality and individuality.
The brand is currently worn by Beyonce and Solange Knowles, Suki Waterhouse, Cara Delevingne, Kaia Gerber and Helena Christensen. Synonymous for its collaborations with leading Australian designers such as Bec + Bridge, Ginger & Smart, and Emma Mulholland. 2018 also sees the release of the anticipated collaboration between STÆRK&CHRISTENSEN + pared eyewear with Helena Christensen and Camilla Stærk’s love of their shared homeland Denmark and childhood memories of the swallow bird. In addition the launch of the hotly anticipated collaboration frame with the design house STÆRK&CHRISTENSEN.
