Oliver Peoples x Balmain Sunglasses

February 2, 2010


Have you walked down a High Street recently and seen a fashionable young woman walking around with big shoulder pads like something from the 1980’s? If so, then you can blame Balmain. Their structured jackets from the fall/winter 2009 ready-to-wear show formed a major jumpoff point for ‘power shoulders’ some months ago (can’t say I see the appeal myself – yet another example of fashion for irony than aesthetics, but I digress.)

This is their latest project, a collaboration with eyewear brand Oliver Peoples. Now I’m not normally a sunglasses man – crazily scared of getting panda eyes – but these I like. One of two limited-edition styles, the classic aviator look is not something that everyone can pull off but when you can…

These will retail for $595, available from March/April, so keep ’em peeled.
