Dutch eyewear brand Ace & Tate continues its aim to radiate optimism, colour and good vibes this summer with a limited edition collection with sex positive Paris-based ready to wear brand, Carne Bollente.

Offered as the Summer of Love pack with two exclusive colourways, each packaged with beach-friendly limited edition merch including an embroidered cap, a beach towel and an exclusive tote bag, all featuring Carne Bollente’s signature illustrations. 


Tomasso pays homage to the 90s with square lines, thick temples and exclusive pink lenses for a rose tinted view of the world. Carne Bollente’s signature illustrations adorn the statement black frame to create playful details that elevate every summer look.

Perfect for lovers of oversized frames, Perla is the ultimate sunny with unexpected angles.  Arriving in a Cashew colour-way with tinted lenses, Perla offers just the right amount of drama — paired with the pack’s limited edition beach towel, the two offer the ultimate ‘chill by the pool’ look.

Established in 2014, sex positive brand, Carne Bollente, aims to bridge the gap of sex and positivity, by letting individuals express their own sexuality and kinks through clothes. 

“The Summer of Love bundle pack is a symbolic invitation to exchange and share optimism and open-mindedness with others. Explore your kinks and change your vision to welcome a new era! Life in pink always feels better. We hope that you’ll enjoy this project as much as we enjoyed creating it with Ace & Tate. Sincerely yours,” says the Carne Team.

The Summer of Love Bundle packs will be available online and exclusively in four of Ace & Tate’s retail locations — Amsterdam Van Woustraat, London Brewer Street, Berlin Alte Schönhauser and Brussels Antoine Dansaertstraat — from Thursday, July 8th.
