Grateful Dead AKILA Ares Miracle Sunglasses Release Date


Last month, iconic rock band Grateful Dead teamed up with Los Angeles-based eyewear brand AKILA on two styles. Now the duo have reunited for a second collaborative collection that features classic Grateful Dead details.

First, the Ares arrives with 13-point lightning bolts on each end and “Steal Your Face” skull plates on the hinges. Color options include black, tan, and concrete. The Miracle serves as the second figure included. It’s shaped like a teardrop aviator and features tie-dye inspired gradient lenses with custom temple cores engraved with the signature lightning bolt and roses of the dead. For the Miracle, black, degraded havana and champagne are the colors offered. Each pair comes with personalized packaging and a lens cloth that features Bertha and Dancing Bears artwork. Finally, a tree is planted for each pair sold in partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects.

The latest episode of Grateful Dead x AKILA is available now via AKILA. For those interested, the Ares is priced at $160 USD and the Miracle is available for $140 USD. Take a closer look at the collection above.

Elsewhere in the fashion world, Drake’s OVO brand has once again teamed up with the Toronto Raptors for an “Off Court Essentials” capsule collection that’s available to buy now.
