The P`8920 combines perfection and precision, as well as heritage and innovation. Inspired by the design of the P`8478, with the P`8920 Porsche Design reintroduces the iconic “Hooks” as an unmistakable element that is ingrained in the brand’s history. A small detail, but with tremendous trendsetting influence. Thanks to these iconic lens fixings, the frames of the Hooks Series exude a masculine and technoid look. Whereas the P‘8920 reflects the classic aviator style, the P‘8919 transforms the design into the modern age with a squared aviator shape. 

The interaction of various dimensions complements the overall concept of the frame and adds a futuristic element. The use of precisely manufactured stainless steel and temple tips made from high-performance plastic RXP® guarantee maximum wearing comfort, flexibility, and lightness. The P`8920 D with a subtle gold hue for the frame combined with green tinted lenses emphasizes the elegant look of this new sunglasses model. The Hooks Series sunglasses are available now at exclusive specialist retailers and from April 1, 2021 in Porsche Design stores, as well as online at www.porsche-design.com

In 1963, Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche created one of the most iconic design objects in contemporary history: the Porsche 911. Following his vision to take the principles and myth of Porsche beyond the automotive world, he created the exclusive lifestyle brand Porsche Design in 1972.  His philosophy and design language can still be seen in all Porsche Design products today. Every Porsche Design product stands for extraordinary precision and perfection, boasts a high level of technological innovation and seamlessly combines intelligent functionality and puristic design.
