Article One and Mission Workshop Launch New Styles in Collaborative Eyewear Collection Designed for Urban Cyclists

October 18, 2022

FLINT, Mich. (Oct. 18, 2022) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Article One, the artisanal eyewear brand boasting heirloom-quality Italian craftsmanship in athleisure and optical frames, today announced the launch of its second collaborative collection with Mission Workshop. Article One and Mission Workshop, a San Francisco-based company that creates bags, clothing, and footwear for urban cyclists, have been partnered since 2021 after jointly designing an activewear frame inspired by classic navigator shape.

“Designing eyewear for bicycling enthusiasts is made much easier by working with the team at Mission Workshop because of their expertise in durable, high-quality gear for urban cyclists,” said Article One Founder Wes Stoody. “Together we handpicked new frame and lens combinations that would create an elevated, bespoke style – a nod to Article One’s principle to challenge the industry standard of technical eyewear aesthetics.”

The Article One x Mission Workshop frame, handcrafted in Italy, was created as a versatile accessory that can seamlessly transition from day-to-day activities to intense athletic pursuits. The sunglasses boast performance-driven elements highlighted by a TR-90 polymer construction — an incredibly durable, lightweight and hypoallergenic material. The frame also includes technical features like Italian Divel lenses with CR-39 Polarization that block 100% of UVA/UVB rays and prevent road glare, adjustable silicone nose pads and rubber temple tips for grip and hold, backside anti-reflective lens coating and spring hinges.

The six new styles, embedded in Article One’s ACTIVE Collection, offer a range of colors and patterns from a vibrant red hue to an eye-catching blue lens, and unique tortoise prints featuring yellows and greens in frame choices.

The Article One x Mission Workshop frame (MSRP $255) is available today online.
