Karen Walker Sunglasses ‘Forever’ | SS 2013

Karen Walker sunglasses 2013

The much anticipated Karen Walker sunglasses Spring/Summer 2013 ‘Forever’ collection is now available.

Whether you are 22 or 92, Karen Walker sunglasses are undeniably beautiful…

Always completely original, Karen Walker doesn’t disappoint this season and delivers a collection which is simultaneously playful, chic, and beaming with vibrant color.  Several new shapes are introduced, ranging from an oversized round sunglass named ‘ORBIT’, to a very well proportioned chunky cat-eye design named “NORETHEN LIGHTS”(our favorite), as well as several stunning frames in between.

There is a plethora of colors to choose from, from your classic black to florescent yellow to crystal turquoise or pink. Some beloved best-selling styles also return in new colors, such as the all-popular ‘HARVEST’ in ‘Crazy Tortoise’ or the ‘NUMBER ONE’ in mouthwatering peach.

Unique to this season is Karen Walker’s creative use of signature metal filigree detailing, incorporated both on and encased in the acetate of several of the frames.

The ‘Forever’ campaign, shot by Ari Seth Cohen of ‘Advanced Style’, is a “celebration eternal optimism”.  Each model is between 65 and 92 years young and was photographed in their New York homes, all looking stunning in their Karen Walker shades.  As usual, stock is limited so snap up your favorite before its gone FOREVER. Check out the campaign and collection below, paired with our product photos.

Vintage Versace Sunglasses

Vintage Versace Sunglasses

After years of customer requests we have finally decided to offer select sunglasses from our vintage vault to the public — kicking it off here with 4 rare vintage Versace pieces.   Each frame is deadstock (mint condition) and in extremely limited quantity. Since they have not been in production for nearly two decades, once sold out that’s it.

Long before the legendary Notorious B.I.G. donned the now iconic Versace shades in his music video ‘Hypnotize’, they were sought after as being an ultimate symbol of opulence.  A personification of not only the bold and unapologetic style of the Versace fashion house, but of the late Gianni Versace himself.  Versace with his lavish estates spanning the globe, including Milan, Miami Beach, Manhattan, and Lake Como, led many to indulge the “comparison to Roman emperors and Medici princes.”

The most coveted vintage Versace sunglasses are not subtle, but rather evoke an era, style, and culture of success in excess.

Cutler and Gross - Fall Winter 2012/2013 The Golden Trail

The Cutler and Gross Fall Winter 2012/2013 ‘The Golden Trail’ collection in now in stock.

This season Cutler and Gross takes us on an exotic journey through ‘The Golden Trail’ from India, via Turkey and Marrakesh. Using the star of Morocco as their guide, the ultimate symbol of richness, peace and beauty, they navigate across distant lands to discover hidden opulence.

Throughout the collection there is an adventurous sense of both shape and color. For women, frames recall the 1970’s, with oversized round and octagonal designs. For men, frames are thick and chunky and a twist on classic 60’s styles, with their wide temples and strong brow bars.

from left, models: 0772, 1072, 0886 in the new 'Gold on Dark Turtle' colorway(click image to view larger)

“Desert sunsets are reflected in the Mellow Yellow acetate and in the gentle graduated hues of paprika red, cinnamon brown and deep blue.  Sunkissed whites and Gold rolled onto tortoiseshell warm the senses while the gentle colours fig, honey and cumin whet the appetite.”

As always each piece is flawlessly executed using the absolute finest Italian acetate, materials, and craftsmanship you will find throughout the land, whether distant or not.   We are proud to present to you ‘The Golden Trail’.

Mosley Tribes Sunglasses – Summer 2012 “A Los Angeles Perspective”

Mosley Tribes Sunglasses - Summer 2012
The Mosley Tribes Summer 2012 collection is now available.

This season Mosley Tribes is paying tribute to the City of Angels, Los Angeles California, home of their headquarters as well as a continual source of their inspiration.

“GROWING UP in Los Angeles has given me an appreciation for the city and the many cultures that live within it. I am constantly inspired by what is going on around me in the diverse and vibrant landscape. This environment – from street art to high fashion, active lifestyle to music culture – drives my creativity and ultimately influences the designs that I create.”
Larry Leight, founder, creative director

Although styles and trends frequently change in Los Angeles the new releases this season are both unique and timeless — translating for any style and any local, whether the city streets or the beach. The collection features an array of classic metal and acetate frames, from the clean all plastic unisex “Stafford” to the vintage inspired squared off “Cayton” aviator (our favorites). Each piece boasts premier mineral glass lenses providing superb optics, with polarized, photochromic, as well as anti-reflective coated lens options.

Check out the new pieces below paired with some of our favorite imagery from the campaign; photographed in the places and on individuals that inspired their creation.

Ksubi Eyewear 2012 – “WAR”

Ksubi Eyewear 2012 WAR
Ksubi eyewear’s 2012 “WAR” collection is now available.

The collection, fittingly entitled “WAR”, is by far our favorite Ksubi offering to date.  There’s a fresh modern aesthetic created which is both raw and refined. It effortlessly fuses ideas and techniques from classic steam punk, traditional biker, fashion, street and sports.

“Adding to its repertoire with 12 unisex styles across sun and optical, the collection remains sharp, classic and modernized.  High shine, metals laminated with luxe leather detailing blend original and timeless elements to achieve a trademark style.”

From modern military aviators with different textures(“Cisco”) to “winged” cat-eye frames(“Rana”), the range presents an array of one of a kind styles which are fashion forward yet remain very clean and wearable.

Maison Martin Margiela X Cutler and Gross 2012

Maison Martin Margiela sunglasses 2012

Maison Martin Margiela 2012 sunglass collection is now available.

After a very successful collaboration last year, French fashion label Maison Martin Margiela once again teams up with luxury eyewear maker Cutler and Gross for a full collection of sunglasses for 2012. The collection fuses the very best of two worlds; Maison Martin Margiela brings their signature expertise for experimental deconstructionist design, while the highly esteemed Cutler and Gross sees it to fruition with impeccable attention detail, materials, and workmanship.

The new range takes powerful past inspirations and themes and re-invents them through Margiela’s discerning perspective.

The main themes include:

‘Cable Temple’ – Our favorite of the season, the ‘Cable Temple’ uses a temple design whose origin can be traced back to the 1800’s.  The Italian acetate frame front is paired with German made stainless steel cable temples which wrap around the wearer’s ears for a secure and comfortable fit.  Also rare for an acetate frame they feature nose pads which help provide a better fit on a wider variety of noses.  Available in three colors: classic Black,  a rich Dark Turtle, as well as a very unique transparent “Champagne”.

‘Replica France’ – For the first time, Maison Martin Margiela has adapted its ‘Replica’ line to include sunglasses.  ‘Replica France’ is based on French motoring sunglasses of the 1970s; it is a semi-rounded design with a unique embossed front outline and tapered sides. Available in Black and Champagne.

‘Rimless’ –  Light weight, minimalist, yet completely distinct and memorable.  The Rimless is a style which plays on the illusion that the lenses are free from form and not surrounded by a frame. The very slim arms are made from stainless steel.  Available as the ‘Rimless Pilot’ style as well as the bold and oversized ‘Rimless Round’.
