Skaga

Skaga is a Swedish traditional, authentic and genuine brand with a history that began as early as in 1948

The brand originated from Småland among sparkling lakes and deep forests. Skaga, with its skilled and genuine craftsmanship have designed, developed and at times manufactured eyeglass frames in Jonkoping, for 70 years. Skaga has an authentic heritage, a long design tradition and history that few brands can rival. Skaga have found a classic and timeless way to balance a good form with function and design, and is a brand that constantly strives to be at the forefront in terms of both high quality and design. That has made Skaga into a leading brand in Scandinavia in the manufacture of eyewear frames. Skaga can also take pride in being the only Swedish eyewear company granted the Royal Warrant Holder title. For decades, this quality mark has become distinctive for the brands Swedish design and is a prestigious title that you carry with honor.

The eyewear collection has a clean and elegant design that attracts the aware consumer who wants to radiate a unique expression and strengthen their identity and personality. Prince Sigvard Bernadotte is one of many famous Swedish designers who have put their imprint on the brand and designed Skaga eyewear frames for many years. Along with other designers who shared his passion for form, quality and thoughtful details they have created eyewear collections with a finish of elegant Scandinavian design with a contemporary expression.

The inspiration for the 2018 FW collection is taken from expeditions to unknown places, worlds different from the one we live in and the endless outer space. The color schemes of the frames bring the thoughts to the darkness of space in combination with the beautiful colors of cosmos that light up the sky. The planets in its orbits and the absolute weightlessness in our solar system have paved the way for new combinations and material choices. The design language of the frames has been characterized by astronaut’s equipment and space ship’s design.

It’s not just Skaga that aims for the stars, Swedish adventure athlete Renata Chlumska who has her base camp in Jönköping does the same. After climbing the top peaks on all continents, The Seven Summits, and paddling 18 200 kilometers around the United States coast, new challenges lie ahead. Renata will be the first Swedish woman in space and have the opportunity to look at our planet Tellus and Sweden with new eyes from an outer perspective. Her space expedition has become the source of inspiration and the starting point of the unique frames, Vintergatan and Andromeda, Renata has designed together with Skaga, where the starry sky is printed on the inside of the frames.

Trends come, trends go and it is with pride we want to invite you on a journey through space.
