Maison Martin Margiela Wrong Size Lens Sunglasses

Maison Martin Margiela Wrong Size Lens Sunglasses

This season, Maison Martin Margiela drops a few pairs of sunglasses that are fitted with lenses that don’t fit into the frame. The thought of such a creation tends to throw folks off but after actually looking at them, we think they look pretty wearable. Two of the styles feature acetate frames while the third is made from gold metal.

Introducing | Lunettes Kollektion Eyewear, Berlin

Introducing | Lunettes Kollektion Eyewear, Berlin

For the past four years, the Lunettes boutique in Berlin has been a great source for 20th Century unworn vintage eyewear. The Lunettes Kollektion is the famed shop’s in-house brand which features shapes and designs reminiscent of vintage frames with a generous dab of the very individual sub-culture that defines Berlin style. Each design is carefully produced by small family-run factories in Italy and Austria, using traditional methods of frame production. All frames come in exclusive packaging inspired by soap and chocolate boxes of the roaring 1920s.

Uta Geyer, head of Lunettes, tells us her and her team are extremely environmentally conscious as well, so to reduce their carbon footprint while supporting their local communities, Lunettes works with small local firms instead of mass production facilities. Berlin book bindery Ernst Lies (Est. 1869) creates the handcrafted cases that accompany each frame.

Oliver Peoples for TAKAHIROMIYASHITA The SoloIst Eyeglasses

Oliver Peoples has teamed up with TAKAHIROMIYASHITA TheSoloIst for an amazing run of eyeglasses for Spring 2011.

The effort marks another notch in Oliver Peoples defining list of respected works and incorporates distinctive elements from each brand in the finish. Spanning five pairs of classic Oliver People silhouettes the glasses use mix of acetate and aged metals and come with an additional set of clip-on sun glasses. The line is slated for release in March of 2011.

We hope these frames make their way stateside somehow as they really are something else. (via Hypebeast)

Now Open | Silver Lining Opticians at 92 Thompson Street

Now Open | Silver Lining Opticians at 92 Thompson Street

Our favorite eyewear boutique just got a bit roomier. New York City’s Silver Lining Opticians has moved a few doors down to a more roomier, more lavish local while keeping intact everything we’ve come to love from the shop. Expect to see plenty of hard-to-find vintage pieces alongside modern classics. They’ve got their own line out in full force as well which is definitely worth check out. We’ve always felt that the shop is one of the city’s hidden gems, but their following has grown substantially since they first opened up in 2007. Being the gracious hosts owners Erik Sacher and Jordan Silver are, it’s only right they accommodate.

Stop by the new boutique at 92 Thompson Street to see what all the buzz is about.

Cutler & Gross Sunglasses [S/S 2010]

Cutler & Gross Sunglasses [S/S 2010]

Cutler & Gross is undoubtedly one of the UK’s most respected and sought after eyewear brands, albeit there aren’t many that come to mind. The competition must have noticed the detail and quality of C&G frames and realized it’s just too difficult playing catchup, especially when these Brits keep reinventing themselves whenever any one even thinks to come closer. Blackbird in Seattle has just taken stock of some great sunglasses from Cutler & Gross, bringing to us the 0772 frame in array of finishes.

All are available now at Blackbird for $410 each.
