STATE x MAXWELL Suns on Tour
New STATE x Maxwell sunglasses just dropped! If you’ve seen Maxwell’s appearances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert or Good Morning America, you already got a sneak peek at the new style. Quantities are limited, so ask your rep for full details soon!

We are excited to expand the STATE X Maxwell Collaboration with a new limited-edition sunglass style designed in partnership with recording artist, three-time Grammy winner, and modern soul star, Maxwell. Named BLACK_SUMMERS’_NIGHT, the sunglasses reference Maxwell’s acclaimed album trilogy whose final chapter will be released in 2022. They also celebrate his NIGHT tour, kicking off in March. View tour dates near you. Perhaps you and Maxwell will be wearing the same shades at the shows!

The Design

The design of BLACK_SUMMERS’_NIGHT takes inspiration from Maxwell’s trademark modern soul sound as well as his personal style - a bit of 70s flair with soul vibes and subtle details. BLACK_SUMMERS’_NIGHT builds on the aesthetic of the STATE x Maxwell collab, adding a titanium sunglass to the capsule collection. Special details, like hand-painted accents on the frame’s side shields and STATE’s trademark pyramidal temple tip, give the sunglasses a soul of their own, harking back to Maxwell’s individual style.

Crafted in Japan, BLACK_SUMMERS’_NIGHT is available in three colorways: BLACK- a midnight blue frame with brown gradient lenses, summers’- a rose gold frame with light pink lenses, and night- a chrome frame with light aqua lenses. The fashion-tinted lenses of the summers’ and night colors are perfectly suited for wearing out for the evening, or in Maxwell’s case, on stage. Each pair of sunglasses will feature limited-edition packaging, including a custom cleaning cloth sharing a message from Maxwell.

The Cause

STATE is proud to contribute a portion of sales from STATE X Maxwell Sunglasses to Opening Your Eyes: The Vision Council Scholarship Fund (O-YES). Born out of the struggles of 2020 and seeking to provide more opportunities to teens in black and brown communities, O-YES provides tuition, an internship, and mentorship to high school seniors who aspire to become opticians. The inaugural class of O-YES students are starting their second semester of school now, thanks in part to your support of STATE x Maxwell.
