The Maybach is the most luxurious of the Merceds Benz brands and now you can wear it as this summer the brand unveils the CREATOR sunglasses ..
The exclusive design object combines ultra-light titanium and sustainably sourced natural horn in a very special way: the cool, technically filigree metal, additionally refined with 22 carat gold, rose gold or platinum plating, meets the horn of traditionally reared Asian water buffalo - warm, elegant and in the finest natural colour structures. This exquisite combination of materials is honed to perfection here in the shape of a model that exudes strong character - as an expression of a new zeitgeist that combines style, innovation and sustainability.
More than 200 steps are required to produce a single pair of these exclusive sunglasses. They combine to high-quality effect the innovative power of Mercedes-Benz with the historically evolved art of handcrafting that is synonymous with MAYBACH Icons of Luxury. THE CREATOR draws on the valuable experience and treasures of both worlds to interpret and help shape the current zeitgeist with a modern design idiom.
Mercedes-Maybach enthusiasts will (also) recognise similarities to the Maybach logo in the shape of THE CREATOR: the rounded corners of the frames and the flowing aesthetics are emblematic of the most exclusive models. A highlight is the bridge, which takes details from the radiator grille and reinterprets them. The comfortable spring hinges on the temples are seamlessly integrated into the logo.
A particularly important feature of the new sunglasses is the natural horn that is used in the frame of the glasses. It comes from the company IVKO, whose atelier working with natural horn established in 1978, and which is now able to bring its many years of experience to bear in MAYBACH eyewear. The horn used for the glasses comes from Asian water buffalo, which are commonly found in farming communities in many parts of the world and whose strength is an indispensable help in everyday life for the local people. They revere these valuable animals, not one of which has to lose its life because of its horn. Mature horn is best suited for making the glasses - so the older the animals, the more beautiful the horn becomes.
THE CREATOR sunglasses are available in a range of colour combinations, including three models with 22k gold plating and two models each with rose gold or platinum plating on a premium titanium base. This is found in the logos, the striking bridge design and the trim around the glass. The variants in gold are available in combination with natural horn in the colour amber and gold mirrored lenses, in matt black natural horn with dark grey lenses, and in cream/green marbled natural horn with lenses in a subtle green gradient. The rose gold models feature frames made of matt black natural horn with lenses in a grey gradient or - as a limited edition - frames made of cream-coloured natural horn with rose gold mirrored lenses. In the platinum versions there is a choice between a variant in matt black natural horn with lenses in a grey gradient, or one in cream/blue marbled natural horn with silver mirrored lenses.
The three models with metal elements in matt black convey special character. In addition to the red colour variant with white marbled horn, there is a black-black combination, which subtly emphasises the contrasts between the materials and between gloss and matt effects, as well as a variant in black-white-black, which plays with pronounced contrasts.
