Ace & Tate announces its first-ever collaboration with London-based fashion brand Ahluwalia, led by the visionary designer Priya Ahluwalia. This dynamic partnership champions values of creativity and responsible design, while tapping into the eccentric energy of the London fashion scene.

Unveiled during Ahluwalia’s Spring/Summer 2024 Runway, this collaboration marks the first time Ace & Tate is launching a collection with Ahluwalia. Priya Ahluwalia makes waves in the fashion industry with bold designs that blend her multicultural Nigerian-Indian heritage with her London roots. Ahluwalia brings her unparalleled vision together with Ace & Tate’s expertise in crafting quality, fashion-forward eyewear.

Crafted in harmony with Ahluwahlia’s Spring/Summer “Acknowledgements” collection, the sunglasses line draws inspiration from overlooked artists of the diaspora, serving as a tribute to their work.

We fell in love with the patterns Priya designed for her collection, and we jazzed up our Mirko and Niku frames with these patterns. As the chef’s kiss on the collection, we added a bold solid metal block ‘A’ logo. We are really excited and proud to launch this collaboration with Ahluwalia.

The maximalist and slightly winged Mirko frame will be available in two contemporary colourways. Mirko in Baya comes across as a playful pink frame with matching pink lenses and a subtly stand-out dotted pattern, inspired by the work of Baya Mahieddine. Mahieddine is one of Algeria’s most celebrated artists and famous for the iconic work that would inspire Picasso to paint a collection called Women of Algeria. Mirko in Namsa is more of a classic choice, with a bold pattern only on the inside of the frame. For those seeking a sleek and sophisticated silhouette, the Niku frame offers a rectangular design featuring the Aurat and Valaida motifs, both colourways feature a custom-made core wire with Ahluwalia’s signature “A”.

Each pair comes in a soft cotton pouch with the “Ace & Tate by Ahluwalia” logo and a cleaning cloth featuring Ahluwalia’s prints. They are packaged in an ethically sourced sugarcane box with paper wrapping displaying Ahluwalia’s signature prints. The collaboration will be available on March 21st, at the Ace & Tate Hanbury store and online at and at the price of €130/ £130 / $150.
