Back in 2010 we acquired the best pairs of sunglasses we’ve ever owned. I am still wearing my Claudia Alan AYA sunglasses and although John managed to squash his during our recent trip to Austin, they were quickly replaced.
Over the last three years John’s received so many compliments on the design of his sunglasses (thanks to Corinne Hunt‘s artwork) and aside from being comfortable, they look great.
Another bonus is that when you purchase AYA eyewear you’re not only supporting BC artists and designers but partial proceeds from the sale of all AYA eyewear and accessory items is donated to the ONEXONE First Nations nutritious breakfast programs.
The ONEXONE First Nations School Breakfast Program was developed in partnership with the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) and PepsiCo Canada with the goal of ensuring the availability of healthy food to all First Nations children in the school setting.
There is a new collection of styles for 2013 so I scooped up Felicity (with a hummingbird design) while John stuck with Brendan (with a killer whale design), and thanks to AYA by Claudia Alan I’m giving away 3 pairs:
This aviator frame was designed for men but we have both men and women loving it. The frame is a mid size fit and has a very comfortable fit. Brendan features a killer whale design that is beautifully frosted on the temples. Brendan is available in a silver, gun metal or brown. Impact and scratch resistant acrylic lenses – UV400.
Aptly named, Marilyn is a glamorous over-size frame featuring quality polarized lenses and a Heron design along the arm. It is available in black, olive green demi, and burgundy demi.. Impact and scratch resistant acrylic lenses – UV400.
Slightly cateye this feminine frame features crystal fronts in teal, red and black. A Frog design is enameled onto the metal temples in corresponding dramatic colours. Impact and scratch resistant acrylic lenses – UV400
These pairs start at $35, which is very affordable considering the artwork (Corinne Hunt was also the Co-Designer of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic medals), the cause, and their durability. You can purchase sunglasses, reading glasses, and frames online and every pair of sunglasses comes with a free microfibre case.
