Spotlight on: Alice

Celebrating Alice, one of Black Eyewear’s original 6 frames dedicated to the driven genius of Alice Coltrane.


We are delighted to announce that Black Eyewear’s Alice, one of our best-loved cat-eyes, is now available in a range of new acetates.


This iconic cat-eye design is slightly larger, more dramatic than more traditional shapes taking inspiration from the early Polaroid collections that were popular in the 50s.

One of our bestsellers to this date – thanks to its versatility and universal fit – Alice has been favored by influencers and made the cut to be portrayed in many of our campaigns.

To mark yet another addition to its impressive color range we take a walk down memory lane and salute Alice’s history.
