Based in New York, Lumete is an independent sunglasses brand for women, by women. The name Lumete is derived from amulet, which means a precious object used for protection and luck, and lumen, meaning light. Drawing inspiration from alchemy and Gnostic symbolism, Lumete’s designs evoke a reverence for eyewear.
A favorite of style icons such as Ms. Dita Von Teese, Lumete’s innovative handmade sunglasses combine sculptural detail, symbolic ornamentation and ultrafemininity.
The sunglasses frames are handmade zyl acetate, and the lenses are hard coated CR39. Lumete’s sunglasses are made in the USA with imported materials. Each pair comes with two case options: the brand signature hard clutch and soft pouch case.
