Liberty & Co. x Super Sunglasses

August 19, 2009

A brand that has made interesting deliveries as of late, thanks to collaborations on a street level, including footwear with Nike Sportswear, and now Super, Britain’s Liberty & Co. and their well-known floral patterns and prints make the jump to eyewear form. Seen in three different patterns, the eyewear is available exclusively at the Liberty & Co. flagship store.

I love seeing Liberty & Co. venture into new territory by creating a collaborative eyewear frame with Super. Seeing these two groups come together and add their own expertise is something that all eyewear consumers can be excited for.

Check out more detailed shots and colorways after the break.

Finally seeing an official release, is the collaborative project between premier footwear specialists, Common Projects, who have since begun producing accessories, including eyewear, and the leading eyewear team, Moscot. Taking on the classic wayfarer look, these shades feature a matte black finish with glossy tonal detailing and the minimalistic branding usually associated with Common Projects. These glasses are now available through Oki-Ni,with a retail price tag of $361.

Mosley Tribes x Hellz Bellz Spring 2010 Sunglasses

July 22, 2009

Today I have the opportunity to give you an interesting first look at an upcoming collaboration between Mosley TribesHellz Bellz.  It seems as if the two brands worked on two pairs of sunglasses for Spring 2010, one coming in a classic brown, and the other one in a black/red colorway. Apparently the “nose bridge” is removable, but more on that once I receive a closer to the release, so stay tuned.

For anyone who is a fanatic over accessories, especially glasses, these sunglasses are made particularly for you. I love the design of the frames, seeing that both pairs mix a flat top frame and thick arms, coming in fresh colorways. Personally, I would rather wear the classic brown, but the black/red colorway has its perks. Thoughts?

More images of the Mosley Tribes x Hellz Bellz Sunglasses follow after the break.

Maison Martin Margiela Visor Sunglasses

July 17, 2009

Pushing the boundaries of eyewear design, a recent Martin Margiela eyewear release features an innovative and interesting aviator appropriation. The sunglasses feature an aviator anatomy, but the obvious difference comes with the one piece lens. A small top bar adds another detail to the original eyewear piece. These glasses are now available at Colette.

I have featured many sunglasses on this blog, but these are the first of their kind. In terms of originality, design, uniqueness, and the way these frames transcend the “popular” style as of lately, these glasses have my undivided attention at the moment. I love these frames, but are you feeling them?


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.

Beams x Oakley Frogskins

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.

A Closer Look: Oakley x Grenade Frogskins

June 26, 2009

A while back, I previewed a highly anticipated collaboration between Oakley and Grenade that would feature Oakley’s signature Frogskins sunglass, and today I am giving you a closer look at that collaboration. Snowboard company Grenade team-up with Oakley on their very on Frogskins style. Keeping true to their roots, the brand creates a military green version with appropriately colored lenses. The Grenade logo is printed on the inside arm and comes complete with a Grenade soft-pouch and carbon-fiber case. These shades will be available soon, so stay tuned.

Oakley x Grenade Frogskins

As I have said before, Oakley has been putting out some very dope collaborative Frogskins sunglasses this summer. I do really like the design of these glasses because they are bold, without being too much for the consumer to handle. This pair of glasses could easily become a staple to your summer wardrobe. I dig them, what do you think?

Check out more detailed photos of this collaboration between Oakley and Grenade after the break.

If you’re looking to stand out even more than the next guy, then check out the Electric Detroit Sunglasses. If the fun name hasn’t sold you, then maybe then maybe the subtle checkered accents on the inside of the frames paired with the six-base polycarbonate lenses will have you staying stylish and functional; or if you are a Lakers’ fan this is the perfect pair of shades. The shades, made by Electric, the reputable snowboarding sunglass company, are sure to keep you chill with 100% UVA and UVB protection during the sweltering summer months upon us.

Electric Detroit Sunglasses

Though these glasses do not sport the vintage black frame, flat top design, I do love these a lot. The purple and yellow colorway paired with the the subtle checkered accents on the inside of the frames paired with the color of the lenses makes for a very dope pair of shades. Kudos to Electric for these.

You can purchase these sunglasses for $70, here.
