The often-imitated Christian Roth series 6558 style is arguably one of the most iconic sunglass designs of the last 30 years.
More than 20 years after its initial release, the Series 6558 is modernized and re-issued by its original creators as a part of the Christian Roth Archive Collection. The Series 6558 remains Christian Roth’s most recognizable creation to date, a shape that signaled the arrival of a entirely new cultural shift and presaged an unprecedented reordering of the landscapes of fashion, music, and popular culture.
Updated and modernized, the Archive 1993 (6558) features a flat graphic 0-base lens as opposed to the original curved 6-base lens, and a redesigned front rim with an architectural concave skive giving an entirely new graphic interpretation while remaining true to the classic shape.
Each frame features Christian Roth’s signature rugged 5-barrel hinges and custom cut-and-paste inserts at the temple tips. Archive 1993 (6558) will feature 350 limited edition frames rendered in a custom acetate which bears the likeness of Murano glass.
