Founded in 2014, Sun Buddies is a premium eyewear line started by brothers Simon and Hannes Hogemon of influential Swedish brand and retailer Très Bien. The label’s name is meant to evoke “something crappy you’d find at Walmart” and clash with the quality of its products. Sun Buddies’ first model took inspiration from the sunglasses worn by Bibi Andersson in Ingmar Bergman’s 1966 film, Persona, and the brand currently offers a range of twelve frames inspired by influential celebrities such as Aaliyah, Courtney Love and Cam’ron. All of Sun Buddies’ eyewear is handmade from acetate and features lenses from Carl Zeiss with 100 percent U.V. protection.
