Maui Jim Sunnies Bring Hawaiian Art to Life

Something exquisite happens when you combine art with excellence. Just take a looksie at Maui Jim’s first-ever ultra-luxe sunwear collection titled “You Move Me.” Vibrantly colorful interpretations of Hawaiian flora and fauna are brought to life by internationally renowned artist Charlie Lyon. His gorgeous motifs has been transferred onto the finest Italian silk and handcrafted into—hold onto your hats—special edition sunnies from the one-and-only Maui Jim.

Artwork for the collection is based on one of Lyon’s vivid paintings that he says is evocative of the quintessential Maui Jim lifestyle. Showcasing everything from sea turtles that he’s spotted underneath his surfboard and butterflies that flutter outside of his studio, to utterly gorgeous Plumeria and Hibiscus flowers that surprise them with their flashy hues, his masterpiece is filled with images of what “moves” him, hence the collection’s namesake.

The line is anchored by two sunnies crafted from printed silk, showcasing Lyon’s painting, embedded in crystal acetate. With only a limited amount of sunglasses—that are numbered and boast Lyon’s personal signature on the silk inlays—available, they are truly pieces of one-of-a-kind, collectible art. Maui Jim has also created 500 pairs of additional shades flaunting non-silk printed versions of Lyon’s painting. Of course, these wouldn’t be true Maui Jim shades without the brand’s PolarizedPlus2 lenses, which masterfully cut UV rays and glare while enhancing colors, giving way to clearer, more brilliant vision.

So if you’re craving sunnies that offer unprecedented style, beauty and quality, look no further. These coveted Maui Jim shades are perfect for you. Check out all of the frames below.
