Eyewear brand Ace and Tate hosted a party at its East London flagship store recently to celebrate the launch of its collection with Ganni.
The 10-piece Ganni x Ace and Tate sunglasses collection is inspired by “the unapologetic Y2K aesthetic and fearless millennial icons” and nods to both brand’s fun, responsible and inclusive ethos.
Attended by a crowd of artists, models and influencers, party guests drank MOTH cocktails, Nice wine, Five Points beer and XOXO soda while eating slices of Yard Sale pizza. Pxssy Palace angel Nadine Noor, meanwhile, took to the decks and revellers were given goodie bags to take home.
The Ganni x Ace and Tate collection features three eyewear styles including a boxy square shape, a slim silhouette and an oversized Y2K-inspired wraparound style. Each pair also comes with a custom leopard print pouch made from leftover Ganni materials.
Staying true to both brands’ responsibility ethos, the sunglasses are crafted using Acetate Renew Bio and recycled acetate materials. Recycled acetate is sourced from waste and offcuts from acetate factories, ensuring a circular approach to production. Acetate Renew Bio is one of the latest material innovations in the eyewear industry, replacing fossil-fuel- derived acetic Anhydride with ISCC certified recycled contents obtained via mass balance.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Ace and Tate on this special sunglasses collection,” says Ganni creative director Ditte Reffstrup. “Together, we have created a range of shades that not only reflect Ganni’s unique style, but shines light on Ace and Tate’s impressive practice when it comes to responsible materials. We see collaboration as a force for change in fashion, and this collaboration is a celebration of just that.”
