I love that each design in the Cassius Eyewear sunglasses line is named for a famous architect with styles like Corbu, Gehry, and Neimeyer. Jason Ng started this retro-inspired New Zealand line in 2008 with inspiration from simplistic styles of the ’60s and ’70s. The sunglasses have been spotted on celebrities like Kanye West and Rihanna, but Ng intends to keep his designs exclusive by only producing 300 individually handcrafted frames of each style. The sunglasses have a unisex look with bold plastic frames in red, black, and white.

I’m excited to see how the Cassius Eyewear line progresses and to see which architects they choose to highlight next!
Corbu Rouge Frame Black Gradient Lens from Moxsie $160
These are my favorite with a vivid primary red in thick frames and a lack of embellishments.
Neimeyer Pearl Frame Brown Gradient Lens from Moxsie $164
I also like this ivory color with simple gold bars on the sides also on a plastic frame.
