New Shades

Eyewear. Some of the most fashion forward brands currently, are gathered in a very important eyewear company, Safilo Group, that invited us yesterday to see all the new Summer 2013 collections of fashion houses like Dior, Celine, Bottega Veneta, Yves-Saint Laurent, Gucci and Marc Jacobs. I tried on dozens of sunglasses but -given that I’ve grown a small obsession the past few years- Celine were two steps ahead of them all.

inspiration/information

this is what i’m all about the last month, sleeping and waking up with south pacific islands on my mind. you could say it’s work and pleasure at the same time.

Prada woven leather shoes and the butterfly sunglasses, Katerina Psoma exotic jewelry, tropical flowers and the “Hula” book by Taschen, all spread on my new (old) vintage formica dinning table.

for your eyes

i took a look at next season’s sunglasses and my favorite trend -coming from last year- is the round lenses, classic 90′s or with a 2011 twist. not too big, neither too small. love them. but if your a cat-eye-sunglasses girl, guess what, they’re here once again, wear them like there’s no tomorrow. Persol and Rayban’s re-editions of basic older models are presented below. put aside for a while your Wayfarers.

Grounded by their  creative approach on thoughts and vision yet complementary in their aesthetics and expertise, Maison Martin Margiela and Cutler and Gross group reveal their first collection based on irreverential design and hand-made quality.

‘wrong size’ – a geometric play on lenses seemingly ill-fitting the frame.

Reference 2 : ‘anatomic’
Materials : black or dark turtle acetate, silver or gold  Monel
Design/Art Direction : Maison Martin Margiela, Paris
