Beams x Oakley Frogskins

July 3, 2009

While there’s no denying the popularity in Oakley’s classic Frogskins, as of late I have seen a prevalent trend towards people utilizing their iconic frames for their corrective lenses as well. The classic shape of the Frogskins works well regardless of use, as we see Beams release some special frames of their own regardless of the usual sun-protecting lenses. Traditional tortoise shell patterns as well as a simple matte black style are seen with the Oakley logo on the side arm done-up in gradient fashion. The frames are available now at Beams.

I am quite the fan this collaboration between Oakley and Beams, especially since these frames utilize a blend of style and utilitarian purposes. These frames uphold Oakley’s aesthetics with Beams’ design traits. Of the two colorways, I am more of a fan of the black matte frames, though the traditional tortoise shell is quite dope. What do you feel about these?

Check out the traditional tortoise frame of the collaboration between Oakley and Beams after the break.

Oakley x Beams Frogskins

June 17, 2009

Here comes another Oakley collaboration on their iconic Frogskin model. This time they get together with Japanese retailer Beams. I absolutely love how they went all classic on these, offering the frames in black and brown with clear lenses. The Frogskins have come in all sorts of crazy color combinations recently and this is a nice balance and alternative to those releases. Stay on the look out for these in Beams stores.

Like I mentioned above, these Oakley’s are a very nice balance from the crazy color schemes they have been recently releasing. Though I love the intense color schemes from previous posts, I do love the simplicity of these. To me, both colorways are very classy, and I honestly would not mind having both pairs in my rotation. I love ’em, do you?
