The CONSTELLATION | It's a statement.

€22,143

There was an outstanding idea. And it's still there. Because creating something you love is worth it to keep on thinking. We at jbriels love sunglasses. Purely because we are creators instead of just thinkers - we proudly present the CONSTELLATION sunglass series, two years in the making. Exclusively for you. And with you.


THE PRODUCT.

HIGH QUALITY COMPONENTS MEET EXCLUSIVE DESIGN.  

The CONSTELLATION is a combination of timeless and innovative design. Produced with the finest handcrafted materials. Handmade in Italy. Take the wings, for example – beautifully eye-catching and the result of unique manufacturing at the same time. Consequently, we only use cutting-edge quality components for our CONSTELLATIONs.

THE WINGS//  

WINGS, WINGS, WINGS.  

During the development process, we spent a lot of time focusing on even the smallest details. Inspired by a functional retro design - skiing glasses - we created #wings. They perfectly protect your privacy while keeping the wind out of your eyes.

THE SKYBRANT LENSES//  

DOPE FOR YOUR EYES.  

Together, the latest technology and innovation make our Skybrant Lenses. An integrated blue filter provides you not only a great view, but also intensifies colors of the environment around you - an all-new innovative feature. This calming effect enhances contours around objects and reduces glare. P.S.: Our lenses are made in Italy and provide a 100% UVA/UVB protection. It's tested intensively and is certified with CE.

And of course the CONSTELLATION is compatible with corrective or perscription lenses.

THE STEEL//  

STYLE, STRONG, STEEL.  

The spotlight is always on your style. This special design commands attention. Made from stainless steel, it's very robust and rust-proof.

THE CERAMIC NOSE PADS//

BEST CHOICE.

The CONSTELLATIONs are equipped with high-quality ceramic nose pads - hygienic and super comfortable to wear at the same time. Their appearance underlines the robust and valuable design of the sunglasses. The CONSTELLATION is certified with the highest health, safety, and environment seals.

JUST HAVE A LOOK!//

Risks and challenges

Over the last months, we have worked extremely hard to pursue our vision of creating the best handcrafted sunglasses. Throughout this journey, we have gained valuable expertise in all relevant aspects needed to handcraft and deliver sunglasses. We do not anticipate any delays or issues within the manufacturing or delivery process. However, uncertainties may always arise. Therefore, we have established strong ties with our Italian craftsmen during our first test batch and continue to do so going forward to mitigate the risks of delays. Additionally, we have integrated sufficient buffers into our timeline in order to guarantee the earliest possible delivery. We are also supported by an expert on shipping to guarantee a punctual delivery to your home. We are confident in our production timeline. Our warranty assures you complete satisfaction.
