Ahlem | Ahlem X Jorden | Thymelight / Bleu Photochromatic
An acetate style with universal appeal, this sunglass innovates a classic pilot shape to express strength, versatility, individuality, and joy.
Ahlem first crossed paths with New York-based stylist, creative director, and fashion editor Jorden Bickham in 2017, when Ahlem was a candidate for a CFDA prize.
A longtime ally of the queer community, Jorden suggested the partnership benefit G.L.I.T.S (Gays and Lesbians Living in a Transgender Society), an NYC-based nonprofit providing TLGBQIA and BIPOC individuals with access to healthcare and housing services, among other basic human rights.
