Alexander Wilton


[:en]Once again I’m proud to introduce the best of two worlds: When Stockholm meets New York and by that I mean the affordable, but ever so good looking sunglasses from Alexander Wilton that are of great quality with roots in both cities. The story of Alexander Wilton and the brand has its roots in New York during the early 1900’s. Alexander lived in New York when he developed a passion for eyewear design. The eyewear industry was growing, but Alexander believed that many designs lacked two important characteristics: elegance, and style. Alexander had a vision to establish his own line of both elegant and stylish eyewear frames, a vision which the company refers to as “A New Perspective”.

“A New Perspective” has become a cornerstone in their philosophy and our approach to the eyewear industry, as well as a mentality that defines Alexander Wilton and their culture. This is when quality comes at an affordable cost and that’s a combination that is a perfect addition to a market full of either cheap copies or extremely expensive designer eyewear.

Photographer: Linda Andersson[:sv]Återigen är jag stolt över att presentera ett märke som har sina rötter i två av mina favoritstäder: Stockholm och New York, Alexander Wilton. Historien om Alexander Wilton har sitt ursprung i New York under tidigt 1900-tal där Alexander bodde och utvecklade en passion för glasögon och solglasögon i synnerhet. Industrin var på framfart, men Alexander kände att många solglasögon saknade två viktiga kännetecknande element: elegans och stil. Alexander hade en vision om att etablera sin egen kollektion av både eleganta och stiliga bågar, en vision som företaget hänvisar till som “Ett nytt perspektiv”.

“Ett nytt perspektiv” har blivit hörnstenen i Alexander Wiltons filosofi och hur de förhåller sig till solglasögonindustrin, men även något som definierar själva varumärket och företagskulturen. Alexander Wilton står för hög kvalitet till ett lågt pris och är därför ett perfekt komplement till en vad vissa skulle kalla en mättad marknad.

    I am a sunglass whore and I love finding new styles and designers. Both of these sunglasses are classic and also so on trend at the same time. I love the tortoise framed ones for a statement look and the first pair remind me of a sophisticated gentleman. I need to check this brand out! xoxo, Christine

    This is my first time hearing of Alexander Wilton, and clearly I’ve been missing out! Huge sunglasses hoarder over here 🙂 One thing that’s important to me is affordability when shopping for new ones, as I have a tendency to misplace mine all the time :/ It’s nice to find another brand that offers this and chic eyewear!

    I totally need to add a couple of this to my shopping cart, I just checked the website and can’t believe they’re just 70 euros! And I know for sure the quality is good because you are recommending them 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!

    Wow Thomas, you conveyed in few words the full essence of the brand and what we need to look for in a pair of sunglasses. Quality and design at a fair price! I love discovering new brands that have their roots in Sweden: it’s like a treasure cove you’re slowly revealing! By the way, I love both frames, both the wayfarer and the vintage one. That close up of your pretty face is totally cuteeeeee. Love, Valeria

    Thank you for sharing such a wonderful brand! They are such classic pieces to own and the two you showcased today would definitely be my pick because it’s not the typical pair of black shades. 🙂

    Both of these sunglasses really suit you, and I can see the quality of Alexander wilton through these photos. I think it’s really easy to tell when sunglasses are super cheap, and not all of us can afford designer, so these seem to be a great option 🙂

    These shades are so cool and most certainly has elegance and style. And the classic tortoise frame is a nice upgrade from the black for that extra style. Bonus for having such an affordable price point.

    I really love those frames! The round shape and the tortoise shell design is both retro but such a classic. You can’t go wrong with a pair of sunnies like those. They look great on you! Will definitely have to check out Alexander Wilton’s collection.
