Based in New York, Lumete is an independent sunglasses brand for women, by women. A favorite of style icons such as Ms. Dita Von Teese, Lumete's innovative handmade sunglasses combine sculptural detail, symbolic ornamentation and ultrafemininity.
The name Lumete ('lou-met') 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.
Our frames are handmade zyl acetate, and the lenses are hard coated CR39. Each pair comes with two case options: our signature hard clutch and our soft pouch case.
