The New York-based Accessories Council marked its third-annual Design Excellence Awards with a virtual ceremony honouring brands for their "outstanding" design achievements.
Big Horn’s Kalaallit
This year’s Optical Eyewear Award was bestowed to timeless classic Burberry (BE2332) by Luxottica, which also took home one of three awards in the sunglass category for Prada’s chunky acetate (PR16WS). Other winners in the category were Big Horn’s Kalaallit, inspired by ancient snow goggles, and State Optical Co’s Reunion. The sustainability award went to The Ocean Cleanup project in partnership with Safilo, for turning plastic from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch into recycled eyewear.
