Orient Express Maison Bonnet Milan - Black


True to its savoir-faire values, Orient Express called upon Maison Bonnet, an artisan of eyewear since 1930, to design the Milan sunglasses—named after the Italian city, which is a stop along the Orient-Express. Brothers Franck and Steven Bonnet designed a black cellulose acetate model with midnight blue pilot-shaped lenses.
