I write this post for those who are still hesitating on the sunglasses model they should buy for this summer. Once again, HME offers you its own selection! I had a hard time rummaging around to end up with a proper selection to satisfy you fashion addicts! Indeed, at that time, only a few brands manage to play their cards right…
1 – At the top of my podium, I’d pick Illesteva, the New-York Sunglasses brand we presented you a few months ago (here). The two founders, Silberman and Ske, have created a brand of classic timeless pieces, meant to last a lifetime and usually push normal boundaries of design by exploring fresh shapes and materials… To me, this brand is a real “coup de coeur”, plus you will find their products on any selective online store, such as La Garçonne, Oki-ni or even Opening Ceremony.
2 – Then, I would pick the Italian brand, L.G.R. Sunglasses. No need to say that these sunglasses are both very elegant and exclusive. Not only will you buy an high-end quality product but also its history and personality with it. I first found out about this brand on Oki-ni website, but as soon as I got in touch with their press department, I understood that L.G.R. Sunglasses was not a brand like any other! You can easily get a pair on Colette online store or on Antonioli.
3- The third position goes to logically to the British Queen of collabs, Ms Linda Farrow !! Dries Van Noten, Alexander Wang, Charles Anastase or, more recently, Jeremy Scott: they have all worked in collaboration with Linda Farrow. That being said, her retro category comprises several real masterpieces, an actual blue chip!! Available everywhere, notably on Linda Farrow catalog.
Our selection after the jump !!
Illesteva was founded by Daniel Silberman and Jus Ske in 2009, a lifestyle project that is influenced by their daily lives. Illesteva sunglasses are handmade in Germany and Italy by the world leading manufactures of luxury eyewear and are able to push the boundaries of hardware innovation.
I found out about this brand on oki-ni online store so I decided to show you these two models of sunglasses designed by Illesteva that I have selected from its Fall2010 collection : Howard Holz (wood frame model above) and Leonard (the leopard one) !! (Click to discover them)
