Brand: Michael Bastian x Randolph Engineering
Origin: United States
Michael Bastian for Randolph Engineering combines the peerless quality of Randolph Engineering — one of the U.S.’s premier producers of sunglasses and shooting eyewear — with the eclectic preppy aesthetic of New York-based fashion designer Michael Bastian, known for his flagship line and collaboration with dress shirt giant GANT. Founded in 1972 by Polish engineers Jan Waszkiewicz and Stanley Zaleski, Randolph Engineering started out as a tool and machinery manufacturer for the optical trade. In 1982, the Massachusetts-based company began producing aviator sunglasses for the U.S. Air Force, then offered its wares to the general public. Michael Bastian’s capsule collection for Randolph Engineering puts a fresh spin on the brand’s classic aviators, with colorful metal frames and floridly curved temple tips. Randolph Engineer's UV-protective, grey mineral crown glass lenses ensure that you can style about town with nary a squint to ruin your chic look.
