As the travel recovery continues, we are seeing excellent engagement from shoppers in the travel retail market and the sunglasses sector in particular.

“This promotion showcases the passion, precision and performance which underpins the Porsche Design brand and we are delighted to be working with our partners at Bahrain Duty Free to provide this excitement and newness for shoppers.”

The collection includes two models, the P‘8937 and the P‘8938. They have been crafted to embody the the Porsche Design lifestyle brand’s origins in ‘passion, performance and motorsport’.
