Tura Inc., in combination with Grammy Award-Winning musician and fashion entrepreneur Gwen Stefani, is introducing a new line of sunglasses and optical eyewear for the L.A.M.B. and gx by Gwen Stefani brands. The collections offer a mixture of urban shapes, bold colors, and fashion forward styling. Both the L.A.M.B. and gx by Gwen Stefani collections are emblematic of Gwen’s unique personal style. Gwen is the master of fusing multiple music genres to create her own distinctive sound. Like her music, her personal style is a fashion blend that showcases her innate ability to create fashion that is fresh and original.

The L.A.M.B. collection features Gwen’s love of “black and white” by expressing it through graphic uses of stripes, checkers, geometric prints, and color blocking.

In optical or sunglasses versions. This collection will delight of course the followers of designer frames which have character and style. Designer, yes, but affordable for all! What are its characteristics? Ultra-thin and ultra-light, this CAC collection creates a surprise and gets unveiled and undressed in two steps : first with the outside frame made of acetate, whose plates are exclusively chosen for the OKO by OKO house – then with the skull of the frame, visible in transparency made of surgical steel with crossing rivets giving it a mono-bloc character frame. This laminating process has allowed to realize an ultra-thin acetate work and also to use unexpected colors to get a high quality finishing – an ultra-thin result that we could only obtain so far with injected molded frames.
