Vision Quest | Shift Gears in Autodromo

Classy driving glasses influenced by the golden age of motoring.

Some shades are made for the pool, other less expensive iterations you stockpile for the back pocket and emergency use, but every once in a while you invest in a pair that has a very specific purpose, and will never feel the touch of water nor the rough edge of your raw denim. These sunglasses are meant to be respected, and these specifically are designed for your drive.

Autodromo is the vision of industrial designer Bradley Price. Drawing inspiration from the golden age of motoring (think vintage sports cars that are cool and classy, yet tiny and likely a bit dangerous), each pair of frames truly looks like a piece of art – one you won’t want to lose.

Priced at $295, the Stelvio Sunglasses are handmade in Japan with premium acetate and available in three distinct colorways. Each pair requires over 130 operations to craft, and Autodromo uses a multi-stage tumbling process to get that perfectly unique look and feel on the materials. They are finished with stainless steel detailing, and are delivered in a leather case with logo pattern cleaning cloth.
