UNIQBROW Sunglasses

Sunglasses made in Barcelona, and designed so you can wear the same pair of lenses across every pair of our frames.

Welcome

What people are saying about us:

Lavanguardia "A revelation in a market begging for innovation."

Yorokobu "A chance to be yourself, and be creative, everyday."

Design you trust "The power to change your look everyday."

Loogic "Changing the way you will wear sunglasses."

Trend hunter "Upgrade your style with a pair from UNIQBROW"

Thrillist "Change your frames as often as your underwear."

 

what?

Everyday we left home wearing the same pair of glasses despite changing every other aspect of our look, it was driving us mad!  So one day we trudged over to our boss's corner office busted open the window ripped open our shirts and screamed "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not gonna take it anymore!" We bailed on our day jobs and for the past year we have poured our hearts into one common goal: give people the ability to have a unique pair of glasses everyday, designed and manufactured to the highest quality.  

One pair of lenses, all the Uniqbrow frames

With one pair of our lenses you will be able to remove them and insert them into every pair of UNIQBROW frames.

 

 

12 Colors three models

We are starting with three models, each with a collection of 12 vibrant colors.  

 

  

How does it work?

We have built a really cool internal structure that fits across all the models, and allows you to fit the same pair of frames into all the lenses.

 

  

How to insert and extract

Removing and inserting the lenses is as easy as putting on your socks....or tying your shoes for those in the anti-sock camp.  See the demo here

 

 

The models

We are not just about colors, we have worked to create innovative new designs that reinvent classic looks.  Our collection is a marriage of retro, with our own personal re-imagining of how they can fit into the modern society of 2013.  You won’t need a flying Delorean for this back to the future experience, but you will need a credit card to ride this train.   


The 219 at the museum
You can see the 219 sit perfectly on the bridge of the nose, and dogs love them too!

 

The 219 and 518 at the Market

The 219 isn’t just for the young, grandmas love these babies, and the 518 looks stylish even when you are cleaning fish at the market...

 

 

The 518 at the Skate Park

Or if you are looking to do some skateboarding, the 518 has a firm hold to stay on your face even when you are bailing on a sick 180 BS Noseslide.

 

 

The Hipsters

The 948 looks totally sweet on the raddest hipsters...

 

 

The 948 beard

Or the 948 can be tailored to match your beard color 

 

Cases, boxes, pouches, towels

Our branded case, boxes, micro-fiber towels, and pouches that will come with every pair!

Where are we at?

We have worked incredibly hard to do everything from design to production here in our hometown of Barcelona, and with our small team of three people.

  • Produced the prototypes you have seen modeled above
  • Designed branded packaging including: cases, pouches, cleaning clothes, and boxes
  • Sourced raw materials and colors from local distributors
  • Partnered with a Barcelona manufacturer to create the mold and the frames
  • Partnered with the most trusted lenses manufacturer, Optics by Carl Zeiss
  • Received pre-orders from boutiques in Barcelona
  • Completed our website

Our team has lived and breathed eyewear for the past year, we have extensive experience in design, production, and retail operations.  We are well positioned to make this a very real competitor within the eyewear industry.  The only thing we lack is a crazy rich uncle, we need you to be that crazy rich uncle.

Who are these weirdos?

Sorry we forgot to introduce ourselves, how rude!

 

Cristina   Cristina Brossa: Cris spent six years working in audio visual production at the CCCB (look it up, they do radical exhibitions).  She has a master in Fine Arts, graphic design, and audio visual production.  She has also been a freelance graphic designer for way too long, and wants to get out of the game.  Since meeting a handsome American on a beach in Croatia during a vacation in 2010 she has spent time working for museums in San Francisco, and building UNIQBROW.  She has two grandmas that are 90 years old, both have more energy than a 12 year old kid.



Mireia   Mireia Subirana: Mireia also spent several years working for the CCCB, mainly preparing coffees for her boss. She now has a masters in coffee making.  Ok, she also has real credentials as well.  Mireia spent several years working as a freelance doing interaction design and audio visual production. She has a masters in graphic and digital design and a postgraduate in exhibition design.  Her love of new media art blossomed after she spent time living in some eccentric corners of Berlin.  She also created the worlds largest game of pong that was projected across The Ramblas in Barcelona.



Andrew   Andrew Swiler: Spent several years as a consultant working for retail companies.  He got fed up and traveled in 2010 where he met a young woman from Barcelona on a beach in Croatia.  His life has been pretty strange ever since.  He spent time working for startups in San Francisco, built his own startup company in Barcelona that was a colossal flame out, and lost his hair (though that was likely a genetic defect).

FAQ

 

1.) Can I use perscription lenses with my new UNIQBROWs?

You absolutely can!  Take our frames and lenses to any optician with your perscritpion and they will produce you a pair of perscription lenses like any other pair of glasses.

2.) Can I wear non sunlenses?

Of course, but legally we have to remind you that if you are going to be in the sun, you should wear sun lenses.  Your mom would be proud of us for reminding you.  

3.) Is the whole frame flexible?

We designed the glasses to have a strong structure that will give you the solid fit you are used to. Our innovative soft material for the external finish will give you incredible soft comfort on your face.

4.) After I buy my first pair, how do I get more?

We are going to start selling online in Spain and the US with free delivery.  We will then be selling in shops througout Europe, you will find the locations on our website, and updated regularly.  Or shoot us an email and we can see how we can get some more UNIQBROWs to you.

5.) Will you have a warranty?

Yes!  Our glasses are built with quality, but we guaranty any manufacturer defects returned to us within 24 months will be replaced. 

6.) What is your return policy?

Unfortunately for our Indiegogo campaign we do not allow returns unless they are under the terms of the warranty.  In which case we will replace any glasses that have a manufacturer defect for the first 24 months you own the glasses.  For purchases through our website we will offer 30 day no hassle returns though!  Check out uniqbrow.com for more info.

7.) When I change lenses between frames, how do I keep them clean?

With every pair of UNIQBROW frames you get a super cool microfiber cloth with the UNIQBROW logo.  We recommend when you are taking out or inserting the lenses you use this cloth.  Or if you don't, you can use the cloth afterwards to clean the lenses as good as new!  Lenses and frames can be cleaned with luke warm water and non-aggressive detergent.

8.) Optics by Carl Zeiss Vision lenses sound pretty awesome, do you have more info?

We were focused on making every aspect of UNIQBROWs high quality, from frames to lenses. Carl Zeiss Vision manufactures the highest quality lenses with the most thorough UV protection testing in the industry.  We promise these are the best lenses around!

9.)  What is the sizing for the glasses?

Below are the models and their sizing up close! 

Below you can see the model prototypes in order:

Prototype of each model

 

Model 219

Our 219 model, inspired by the classic cat eyes design made famous by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (a movie that plays 24 hours a day here in Spain).  

 

 

Model 518

The 518 model  was our way of redefining the classic Wayfarer that has become popular the past few years, a style from the 60’ transported to 2013.

 

 

The 948 Model

The 948 model is a remix of the square broadside sunglasses that were popular in the sixties and seventies, we have reinvented them because we felt it was a style begging to be brought back.
