Stylish Sunglasses for a Cause

  • Christina Garofalo

The new eyewear company Shauns is offering handmade sunglasses with a humanitarian bent. For every pair sold, the founder and creative director, Shaun Paterson—who was inspired to start the brand after his vision began deteriorating at the age of 15—donates a pair of eyeglasses and sponsors an eye exam for someone in need in a developing country. The Del Mar, Calif.–based company has created sleek, aviator-shaped acetate and stainless steel frames that are made by artisans in a small, third-generation family-owned workshop in Belluno, Italy, about 60 miles north of Venice. The glasses are fitted with Carl Zeiss lenses. The men’s models come in seven colors—including black, gray, green, gold, and tortoiseshell—and are available at Neiman Marcus ($160 to $385).
