Toro y Moi is known as much for his music as he is for his sense of style, and now the singer is showcasing both of those talents with a new collaboration with Warby Parker.

The eyewear brand has teamed up with Toro y Moi (aka Chaz Bear) on a pair of “Mahal” sunglasses, named after the singer’s recently released album of the same name.

Two colorways are available as part of this limited-edition frame, which features a relaxed unisex silhouette paired with slightly oversized hexagonal-style lenses. A crystal shade comes with ‘flash electric’ orange lenses, while the ‘papaya’ colourway features a punchy pop of color with red gradient lenses. The sunglasses are lightweight and summery and can be worn alone or personalized with your online prescription.

Warby Parker says the Toro y Moi sunglasses are both “energetic” and “comfortable,” which matches the vibe of Bear’s work. The brand adds that the frames reflect the singer’s music: “undeniably lively, expressive and catchy”.

For his part, Bear says he was actually inspired for the Mahal frames by a mood board he put together for the album. “The frame we created together is directly related to the cover of my new album,” he explains in a press release. “One colorway matches the warmth of the disc, and the other style’s mirror lenses mimic the chrome on the jeepney” (the popular Filipino vehicle pictured on the album cover).

Incidentally, the word “Mahal” can mean both “love” and “dear” in Tagalog, and is a tribute to Bear’s Filipino American roots.
