Dolce & Gabbana Gold Edition Eyewear

Dolce & Gabbana Gold Edition Eyewear

Dolce & Gabbana is set to release some fine eyewear from their Gold Edition, just in time for the holidays. One pair reminds us of a Dita Cazal collaboration from about a year ago. The piping on these are slick along with the other gold lining. Will they be on my dresser in the next few weeks? For 90,000 Yen (over 1000 USD), probably not. They’re still great to look at.

Tom Ford Eyewear Fall + Winter 2009

Tom Ford Eyewear Fall + Winter 2009

The relationship between Jon Kortajarena and Tom Ford continues to thrive with the label’s fall/winter eyewear campaign. The men’s lineup looks pretty solid, most notably those silver aviators. As for the women’s, let’s just say we weren’t focusing on the frames. Tom Ford shot the entire campaign himself and we commend him for his hands-on dedication.

Super RSF [Bread and Butter Berlin Edition]

Super RSF Bread and Butter Berlin Edition

The fine folks at StyleCrave have given us a glimpse at Super’s latest creation — The RSF Bread and Butter Berlin Edition. “One of my top frame choices this year has got to be the Super RSF Bread & Butter Berlin Edition with straight top frames in a nice butterscotch shade. Clear lenses by Zeiss combine forces with that drool-worthy Italian construction and tortoiseshell effect. Mmmm… vintage-y, with 180 made and individual numbering.”

Only 180 of these hand-made beauties will ever see the light of day, each with individual numbering.

Mykita 2009 Collection Lookbook by Mark Borthwick

mykita-2009-collection-main

With a warm, wondrous spontaneity infusing his work, British-born Mark Borthwick is revered for his personal style of photography. For Mykita‘s 2009 campaign, he integrated elements of fashion, architecture, and design to develop a uniquely personal and intuitive approach. In March, he used his residence in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn as the canvas for Mykita’s campaign and the finished product was exceptional. The campaign even features some of his friends and family.

We don’t know whether we’re more impressed by Mykita’s 2009 collection Borthwick’s work. You be the judge.

Refined and retro, these aviator frames by Persol are perfect, as far as the current “trends” are concerned. They have gold detail across the bridge which really helps them stand out. They’re available in black as well as a PH-preferred dark tortoise finish (after the jump).

The accessory, not the necessity: 10 timeless spectacles for 2009

johnny-depp-spectacles-eyeglasses-20093sixteen-spectacles-eyeglasses-2009

This year, the growing trend seems to be the spectacles. Just earlier, we showed you Justin Timberlake sporting his plastic frames and while in the past, most have opted for contact lenses, this year fashionistos have turned what used to be a downright necessity into an accessory. 

From our perspective, not every man will be suited for a pair of wayfarers, so we’ve got 10 diverse (maybe) pairs after the jump, hoping one of the them will help you strike gold.
