Frēda banana is a unique sunglasses brand that was created in New York in 2014. What started as a creative passion project for Founder and Creative Director Alexia Jane Hebet, quickly became a recognised brand on both sides of the Atlantic. The main inspiration for the shades came from Alexia's trip to Burning Man. One of the "Ten Commandments" of the desert festival is 'radical self expression'. Frēda Banana captures that ethos very well, as all the sunglasses have a one of a kind design and are hand made by the creator herself... you will always be in the spotlight with your colourful Freda Bananas on. Each frame is handmade in Greece and embellished in Notting Hill. It takes between 30 - 120 mins to create a pair, depending on the complexity of the design. The pearls are meticulously glued on, literally one by one, in the brand's atelier in Notting Hill, London.
Style & Quality
Frēda Banana provides unisex sunglasses, which are produced in Greece using the finest Italian raw materials. Each pair is delicately hand made with much attention to detail and elegance to create the unique Frēda Banana look. The sunglasses have each passed 43 quality control stages and have undergone 6 different polishing methods to ensure that they reach the highest level of quality.
The round frames are manufactured from acetate while the hinges are made from stainless steel to provide the glasses with strength and comfort. Each mirrored and black model has polarized lenses that filter light rays to improve vision in bright light conditions and flash. They are 100% absorbent to UV radiation for absolute protection in the sun
