These new styles by Ørgreen consist of two male, one female and one unisex frames, but don’t feel constrained to adhering to traditional gender roles with this collection. Østerbro is a district in eastern Copenhagen that is synonymous with tranquility. The model Østerbro is a medium-sized square unisex style sun frame that comes in an array of dazzling color combinations such as Transparent Crystal and Dark Havana + Warm Grey, uniquely developed by Ørgreen’s in-house colorist. Østerbro’s rectangular shape and thick temples brilliantly accommodate a dual-colored front with a unique color combination of Almost Black + Burned Brick. 

Vesterbro quickly become one of Copenhagen’s most sought after neighborhoods due to its central location and countless gastronomic options. Vesterbro is a modern take on a classic male sun style inspired by this vibrant area in West Copenhagenand is offered in 4 different color combinations including Transparent Crystal and Havana + Caramel. Vesterbro’s college shaped frame in transparent crystal combined with its polarized green lens and its interchangeable colors and patterns on both the front and temples add an alternative touch to a classic, versatile male sun frame. 

In northern Copenhagen lies Nørrebro: a poly-cultural district synonymous with diversity. It is Copenhagen’s main melting pot of cultures, religions, and ethnicities. Nørrebro is a new female sun style inspired by the iconic cat-eye shaped frame produced in 4 wonderful color combinations such as Almost Black + Amber Havana, Burned Wine Twirl, and Transparent Wine. The cat-eye shaped Nørrebro sun frame comes in a classic Havana with violet end tips, adding a groovy touch to an otherwise classic colorway. 

The colored houses and idyllic canals make Christianshavn truly unique and is one of Copenhagen’s most picturesque districts. Christianshavn’s retro look makes this sun style a must have for the modern male with a versatile wardrobe. This acetate frame comes in 4 different color combinations including Black Marble + Clear Warm Grey and Olive + Havana which along with their 4 individual lens colors appeal to a wide range of consumers.
