The BOSS Black Eyewear Collection achieved its first Transat



Thomson and Altadill raced the Transat Jacques Vabre with the support of HUGO BOSS and HUGO BOSS Eyewear, the brand that includes the collections of sunglasses and eyeglasses designed, manufactured and distributed by Safilo under license.

Within this partnership with HUGO BOSS Sailing Team, Safilo has launched the special model "ALEX 99" (BOSS 0338/S and 0338/N/S) and in its wake the new sunglasses 0393/S and 0392/S. All these styles are part of the BOSS Black Eyewear Collection. ”ALEX 99” are the official sunglasses worn by Alex Thomson and his crew. The aerodynamic injected frame is personalized by a metal logo insert on the outside, whilst inside the wording “ALEX 99” can be seen, showing the first name of the skipper and the boat number. The models are also available with polarized lenses, offering excellent visual quality that eliminates all reflections, perfect for outdoor sports. The lightweight and comfortable shield sunglasses, such as BOSS 0393/S and 0392/S, with their wrap-around shape, also flaunt a decidedly sporty design and are ideal for sports activities but also for everyday wear.

The next challenge for HUGO BOSS, Alex Thomson and the BOSS Black Eyewear Collection will be the Transat B to B, a single-handed race reserved for the IMOCA 60 class. It will start in St. Barts on December 5th and is due to finish in Lorient, France, before Christmas.
