We are very grateful to announce the launch of the collaboration between Andy Wahloo Apparel and Poppy Lissiman’s Australian accessories brand (featuring the Somnii Crew from Marrakech).
They have created two pairs of sunglasses featuring their combined love for bold shapes and colors… turning everyone who wears them into their own version of a “rock-star”.
We will ship the sunglasses only to the UK and Europe. If you would like to buy them from a different part of the globe, please check the Poppy Lissiman's website:
Poppy Lissiman is a West Australian born, Sydney based designer. She first started her brand in 2008 as a high end women’s ready- to-wear label. In 2012 she re-launched as an accessories brand specializing in handbags, eyewear and jewelry that has since risen to dominate the street style scene as well as being a regular fixture on the Instagram feed. Since the inception of her accessories line, Poppy has always aimed to create pieces which are not only eye-catching and left of centre but also cruelty free. She only uses the highest quality vegan materials which ensure all her pieces pack a punch whilst remaining cruelty free. As of 2019, she also started working with recycled post- consumer plastic waste for all her handbags.

It celebrates modern “Souk Wear”, embracing the new hip-hop generation of the Medina and “Super-Lux”, which features one-of-a-kind hand made couture garments made by the local artisans of Morocco.
