Introducing our new styles, the Templanza and Vedrina!

We are pleased to present the Arcana I Collection, which will be available in mid-March!

With its graceful front and and ultra-comfortable serpentine temples, the Vedrina is a sleek and modern style, presenting an alluring play of sinuous curves and supple colors. Vedrina represents serenity as a state arising from silent contemplation.


A chiseled, cat-eye rectangular front is complemented by striking oblique sculptural temples in Templanza’s dramatic and daring design. Templanza was inspired by the XIIII card of the Tarot of Marseille, Temperance. It symbolizes harmony, moderation and the synthesis of opposites.


All styles are handmade acetate with hard coated CR39 lenses. Each pair comes with two case options: our signature hard clutch and our soft pouch case. Lumete sunglasses are made in the USA with imported materials. Please visit here for more details.

The Arcana I Collection is available for preorder now. Wholesale buyers, please visit our wonderfully convenient new wholesale website with JOOR.

We are also proud to introduce our new lookbook for our entire collection. We would like to thank and credit the following talents for helping us with our beautiful new photography. They did an amazing job!
