ILLESTEVA – sunglasses we love

Beautiful Sunglasses handmade in Italy and designed in New York since 2010. 

See yourself anywhere in a pair of Illestevas – classic shapes with contemporary materials. Whether it’s on busy city streets or a relaxing beach hideaway.



Illesteva started in 2010 when the brand saw a unique opportunity to create a range of sun and eyewear that combined classic shapes with contemporary materials. Since then, the brand has maintained their experimental outlook while also using the highest quality materials made in family-run factories in Italy.



A pair of Illestevas begins with hand mixed and customized acetate — thats why no two pairs have exactly the same pattern. After undergoing an assembly process, each pair is inspected by hand to ensure quality and Illesteva standard of excellence.


Always seeking to push the boundaries of design, Illesteva pursues collaborative efforts with some of the industries’ most interesting fashion, music, and art icons. Collaborating on designs with individuals like iconic Velvet Underground frontman Lou Reed and supermodel Jourdan Dunn, Illesteva looks to outside inspirations to see how they might view the world through an Illesteva frame.

The only question is: which one to choose? We love them all!
