Born In Bondi: Pacifico Optical Sunglasses

While having a yarn on a summer’s afternoon down at Ben Buckler Point in North Bondi, two good mates Alain Guglielmino and Nicholas Guzowski (trying saying those two names ten times quickly) realised that they couldn’t find stylish, high quality sunglasses at an affordable price point.

Without wasting any time, Guglielmino and Guzowski quickly set about changing that, and rising like a phoenix out of the ashes of their labours, Pacifico Optical was born. The pair decided that quality was absolutely paramount, so they have sourced their parts from the best suppliers in the world. The frames come Italian acetate manufacturer Mazzucchelli and the hinges and internals of each set of shades come from German manufacturer Comotec. No compromises are taken when it comes to your eyes either – the lenses in Pacifico Optical sunglasses are sourced from premium German optics manufacturer, Carl Zeiss.

Now into their second season, the boys down at Pacifico have put together a range that offers something for everyone, with stylish silhouettes, and quality components starting from $159.
