Former Tsubi, todays Ksubi is a famous streetfashion brand of Australia, and certainly a strong candidate to be one of the best in the fashion eyewear industry. The models are mostly inspired by vintage designs, however some of them are too far futuristic.
I am confused here because I am one of those old fashioned guys who think fashion people should have consistency in their styles.. What do you think?
Carolina Herrera's half shaded black&white sunglasses is #1 in the similar models such as Marni and Chanel. In addition to being chic, they also have an elegant look taking me back to 60s. If Gace Kelly was alive, I am sure she would be wearing those..

According to Wikipedia, The Billionaire Boys Club was the popular nickname for BBC, an investment and social club organized by Joseph Gamsky, also known as "Joe Hunt", in southern Californai in 1983. The club recruited the sons of wealthy families from the Harvard School for Boys in the LA area with the promise of quick success in business life.
Why are we still talking about them? Well, Pharrel Williams, Grammy winner producer jumped to the fashion, and he has re-created the brand BBC with his manager Robert Walker and Japanese designer Nigo, whom Williams has referred to as the Steven Spielberg of fashion. BBC has all kinds of clothing as well as well designed accessories like the Wayfarer modeled sunglasses in the picture... Thanks God he did that because I loved these sunglasses.
Hey Mary Jane, stop smoking weed and wear these sunglasses! They would definetely identify you as a hippy or a lovely girl (depending on your mustache). The frames are hand painted by Philadelphian artists and kind of cute.. What do you think?

Iwood ecodesign sunglasses are made of wood, and they are 100 % environment friendly - they say-. Well, trees are cut for making these sunglasses come true and therefore create a dilemma for me.. Still very fashionable and chic.. Up to you to wear or not, I think I would (final decision)
I hate these models.. really.. I don't know what they name them, to me they are the 80's nightmares. These models can be found at almost every vintage store as well as websites where they sell cheap plastic sunglassess.. Google: vintage, cheap ;)
Being a Belgian fashion designer, and studying industral design, Raf Simons is a new breathe to eyewear design. As can be seen from his collections, the effects of his academic background is reflected in the sytle. He has worked with many deisgners such Martin Margiela and Jean-Paul Gaultier, I would say his innovative design reflects JPG's futuristic looks, but still very very original...

Famous Turkish designer Hussein Chalayan is certainly one of the most talented designers of our century. But his latest collection brought back the famous question: Art for art orrrr art for the... err....Jetsons?
BRAND : PERSON / 714 (STILL ON THE SHELVES).
This is the legendary model of Persol, that became famous with Steve Mcqueen. The model is still sold today and you can choose between different colours for the lenses. Umm, I'd certainly go for the blue one, 'cos they look more chic and unorthodox to me.
The original sunglasses of Steve Mcqueen in the picture above,were sold for 60.000 USD at an auction in 2006.

If you don't want to spend too much money on your sunglasses and still wanna look like a fashionista, Jeepers Peepers is perfect for you. These UK made sunglasses are really cheap, and they have certified UV lenses. They have Nicole Ritchie's nostalgiac swan-arm sunglasses replicas on their website http://www.jeeperspeepers.co.uk/, but they seeemed really cheap to me. You know what I mean ;)
I was wondering who would produce my childhood fantasy first and Louis Vuitton did it. My father had all colours of these sunglasses (don't remember the brand)in his shop and they were fun to wear. They are both sytlish and nostalgiac! Bravo LV!

Hologram sunglasses force creativity. With the new technology, it is possible now to create your own image on your reflective lenses. Don't worry, it is not harmful to the eyes and does not effect your sight. Good news is that, companies can put their own logo and advertise their product for free.. Imagine, O on one lense, K on the other.. I am creatieew, right? :))

Delfina Delettrez is a young designer, (daughter of Sylvia Fendi and famous jeweller Bernard Delettrez) who added a fresh perspective to the sunglasses industry. Her innovative -sometimes- weird models are supported by Alain Mikli, and enriched by jewelry.. Well, Lanvin, you should definetely change your designers, see jewelry on sunglasses may still be nice. Check her jewelry at: www.delfinadelettrez.com
Oliver Peoples this season competes with their high qality lenses. The model in the picture, Marclay is unisex, and is a combination of metal and plastic. YSL, last season had a similar model, however Marclay comes in transparent frames too. Check: http://www.oliverpeoples.com/shop/marclay.html#
This is an interesting collation that I met @ whowhatwear.com.. The round sunglasses come in different colors and brands, and mostly plastic. The metal ones are also cute (especially the small ones) in case you wanna look like a rebi ;)

Yes I admit. I am cheap, I love these Turbo sunglasses coming in almost all colours. I personally ordered them on the Internet, they are available at Cheap Chinese Sunglasses websites and of course on dark narrow streets. I love you China too for making this world a cheaper place!
