Fernando Alonso designs Quiksilver eyewear

June 16 2006

Quiksilver, the brand specializing in the board sports sector, asked the Renault Team's Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso to design a new line of eyewear.

Inspired by racing, the four sun and two vision models are making their spring/summer debut in stores. The inner part of the temples has the checkered flag design typical of races, alternating with the red wave of the Quiksilver logo.

The glasses are made in technological materials like lightweight, high-density resin, the gray nylon lenses reduce distortion to a minimum, and they are trying out a new type of nose-piece that allows excessive condensation to be eliminated.
