Orient Express Maison Bonnet Milan - Buffalo Horn Cognac


Orient Express called upon Maison Bonnet, a bespoke Parisian eyewear company since 1930, to craft a pair of Sofia sunglasses featuring a mink-coloured buffalo horn frame and midnight blue lens. Named after the capital of Bulgaria—a stop along the Orient-Express—these made-to-order spectacles include an invitation to a Maison Bonnet boutique to be fitted and engraved.

An Exclusive Orient Express Creation





To craft this indispensable travel accessory, Orient Express called upon artisanal eyewear manufacturer Maison Bonnet. Masters of eyewear since 1930, their one-of-a-kind designs have been worn by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Le Corbusier, and Jacques Chirac among others.
