A unique cat: Sphinx is a bold, modern cat-eye with acetate wrapped in metal. This intricate frame is meticulously handmade in Japan and features high-quality shatterproof lenses with 100% UV protection. The Sphinx shape was designed to be flattering on all faces. Its super-durable construction and smooth, high-quality hinges ensure these will be your favorite shades for years to come.
The sphinx is a mythological creature, benevolent but ferocious, with the body of a lion and head of a human. They were thought of as guardians, often flanking the entrances to temples, and are most widely recognized for their prominence in Egyptian culture. Our cat-eyed frame structure is inspired by the feline element of the Sphinx, and the unique metal and acetate combination is truly a human-made marvel that pays homage to one of Egypt's most ancient structures.
