History

Whiteout & Glare® – two meteorological spectacles which cloak the world in harsh, blinding light, causing all landscape definition to disappear.

The spectacles by the Berlin-based designer label of the same name are no less radiant and impressive than these natural phenomena.

Since 2006 Whiteout & Glare has consistently dazzled with its new ideas, purpose-made materials and in particular the sound craftsmanship of its eyewear. From corrective lenses to sunglasses and sport glasses – the difference is in detail and function. The selection of materials and the shapes alone ensure that the end result will be a firm favorite suitable for everyday wear. Every aspect has been carefully thought out and developed. Some might call this “minimalist”, others “pragmatic”. But at Whiteout & Glare it is not terms that count but results – and these range from unpretentious and sturdy to smart and upmarket. Because timeless elegance and distinctive design don’t need trends – they create these for themselves.

Since its launch the label has found its inspiration not only in natural phenomena, but all over the globe. The people at Whiteout & Glare closely observe how the world is constantly changing and creating something new. The brand picks up on one particular theme of this endless cycle to represent each of its collections, taking this as its guide throughout the entire design and production process. The combination of new ideas and exceptional craftsmanship thus leads to the creation of glasses of incomparable quality.
