Sunglasses That Double As A Wha?

Everyone loves a product with multiple uses. Lip gloss with SPF is awesome for keeping your pucker hydrated and safe from summer rays. Shampoo and conditioner in one is key for those who are just too lazy or busy to extend their shower time. But the latest in double duty is just a teensy bit out there on the weird scale. Chanel produced a pair of tortoise shell sunglasses that also serve as a way to untangle your locks. Yes, that’s right–sunglasses that double as a comb. They’re reminiscent of those shutter shades everyone was rocking last year, and a little too Kanye West for my taste. After all, if I’m buying Chanel, I want to feel classy. But when you think about it, this designer piece is really only half the price given its two uses. Are you sold? [The Gloss] Keep reading »

“I’m Famous” Sunglasses

Every spring we feel an overwhelming desire to stock up on sunglasses. Never mind the already-extensive collections we have, the “But I’m protecting my eyes!” justifications begin and we’re totally beyond reason. This, as you can imagine, can become a rather expensive habit. These rather adorable, slightly over-the-top Fred Flare sunnies, however, quench our buying thirsts without maiming our credit card bills. Plus, everyone needs a pair of “I’m Famous” sunglasses!

[$11.00 Fred Flare]

What’s Up With These $400 J.Crew Glasses?

Hey, hey, hey, J.Crew, since when did you start slapping Barneys price tags on your previously affordable goods? While we still adore you, we got a bit of a shock yesterday while doing some online window shopping on your site when we saw these cute sunglasses for … $395? Um, what? The deal—they’re part of a special collection from the famous eyewear brand A. R. Trapp, a “family-owned-and-operated company … known for its elegant, timeless designs and expert dedication to the craft—many clients have been wearing the same A.R. Trapp styles for decades (Spike Lee and famed architect Philip Johnson have counted among them).”

The vintage vibe on these thick-framed specs is pretty neat, but neat enough to drop $400 on? Hmm … [J.Crew] Keep reading »

Karl Lagerfeld On Burqas, Celebrity Status, & Adoption

Here’s the thing about fashion. Sometimes dreams do come true. Just yesterday, blogger Bryan Boy was invited to visit Vogue, and in the newest issue of Vice magazine, Canadian writer Bruce LaBruce was invited by the glossy to fly out to Paris to spend an hour and a half with the sunglassed designer, Karl Lagerfeld. In between questions about his personality, life choices, and celebrity status, Karl equates his sunglasses to a burqa, discusses the fact that he’d rather give money to a specific child’s family than adopt and disrupt their home life, talks about how he only eats meat once a week on orders from his doctor, shares info about his fax relationship with Anna Wintour, and admits that he has one person on staff dedicated to delivering letters. Every day. The full interview is published in a Q&A form, and we highly suggest stopping what you’re doing in order to read the quotes in their entirety. [Vice] Keep reading »

Madonna Gets Together With Dolce & Gabbana, Produces Sunglasses

Ah, Madonna. So elusive. So enigmatic. So impenetrable. If only she weren’t wearing those dark sunglasses all the time! Then maybe we would know her. Or perhaps not. If you want to throw shade like the Material Girl, you can now, thanks to the fact that Miss M and Dolce & Gabbana are collaborating on a line of sunglasses. The brand-within-a-brand will be called MDG (which sort of sounds like a gyno office, but whatever), the shades will go for $248 to $289 a pair, and the sexy campaign was shot by Steven Klein (natch). “[Madonna] is very exacting and a professional who seeks perfection in everything she does, and this was no exception,” spews Stefano Gabbana. But will wearing them make you super famous? Maybe. [WWD] Keep reading »

Amber Rose Wears “Interesting” Sunglasses

The fashion train wreck “icon” that is Amber Rose wore this windshield on her face as a pair of sunglasses and paired them with an electric pink thong … just to keep it classy. Maybe she needed the blinders to shield her from her overwhelmingly bad taste, heh. Keep reading »

Punked! Glasses Tattoo Boy Was A Marketing Ploy!

D’oh! We sure were fooled—apparently that dude who got specs inked on his face was part of a viral marketing plan from Ray-Ban, which has pulled off shenanigans like this in the past. Although … it’s still unclear whether glasses boy got a real tattoo. [Looks real to me. -- Editor] What would be weirder: getting that tat because you wanted it or getting it because someone paid you to? [Adverblog] Keep reading »

Is It Too Early To Start Thinking About Spring Shades?

Coming this spring: Alexander Wang‘s first sunglasses collection, which includes these uh-may-zing cat’s-eye shades that I’m going to declare this summer’s must-have beach peepers. How much do they cost? I’m guessing somewhere in the range of I-don’t-want-to-know. [Pipeline] Keep reading »

Get “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” Sunglasses From Tiffany’s

In the 1961 classic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” Audrey Hepburn’s character, Holly Golightly, flits around New York City wearing Givenchy dresses and oversized shades. Many a woman has since tried to pull off Holly’s look, particularly the big sunglasses. The sunnies are supposedly a discontinued Ray-Ban style, so the movie’s title character, Tiffany & Co., has stepped in to fill the void. The brand is now selling Tiffany Charms sunglasses, which are reminiscent of the pair from the movie, in black, Tiffany blue, and purple. Of course, Tiffany wouldn’t make regular ole eyewear, so these feature charms you can switch up depending on whether you’re in a “T,” Tiffany logo, or heart kind of mood. Would you buy these to be one step closer to Holly Golightly? [Also, you would think that Ray-Ban would've stepped up and started producing them again by now. Guess they're too busy raking in Wayfarer sales.--Editor] [Luxist] Keep reading »
