The Alexander Wang debut sunglasses collection in collaboration with Linda Farrow has finally hit stores with a Spring 2010 collection! As could be expected from the talented young creative designer, the sunglasses styles are completely unique and stylish. The pairing with Linda Farrow is perfect because the brand is well-known for their high quality high fashion sunglasses and they have already produced an impressive list of collaborations with the fashion industry’s hottest names.
Zippered sunglasses! What a great idea! Designers are using the recognizable zipper pattern in new and inventive ways, but this is the first time I have seen it on sunglasses. I love that there is actually a zipper pull along the temple where the zippers meet….fabulous! The zippers come in silver, copper, or nickel all on black acetate frames.
This style repeats the zipper pull along the temple in a more flattened subtle style. The slightly oversized round lens shape is definitely going to be repeated a lot in spring 2010. I like the brushed metal material of the frame, which comes in gold, silver, and matte black.
It will take a confident fashionable woman to pull of these fun exaggerated cat eye frames! These remind me of the Jetson’s, but somehow Wang and Farrow can make it look good.
