Polaroid: Polaroid Presents The New Sunglasses With Polarized Cosmetic Lenses

A hit during the 1980s – a decade characterized by a pop aesthetic and flashy colors – cosmetic lenses are now back with a bang! And, with it, comes the latest sunglass trend: glasses with lively sorbet-colored lenses. While cosmetic lenses previously offered no eye protection whatsoever, today, POLAROID EYEWEAR reinterprets this ‘80s phenomenon with a new collection that combines pop colors with 100% UV protection, thanks to the brand’s polarized lenses, offering wearers a true “instant experience”. Lightweight metal frames and polarized cosmetic lenses in pastel hues define the season’s coolest styles. The new collection includes two sunglasses: a feminine, 1970s-inspired oversize rounded model (PLD 2053/S), and a unisex style with a smaller, rounded silhouette (PLD 4052/S). Both models come with an array of semi-transparent polarized lenses in pastel hues of yellow, pink, green and blue. Affordable design, innovation and functionality are the keywords for Polaroid’s concept: design-led eyewear for everyone at unbeatable value for the price that offers glare-free perception of colors and light, for unique visual satisfaction. All Polaroid sunglasses come with UltraSight™...

Max Mara is pleased to announce a collaboration with visual artist, Shantell Martin, on a unique project in celebration of the brand’s Spring/Summer 2017 eyewear collection. “Prism in Motion”, translates Shantell Martin’s signature style of stream-of-conscious lines and words into a playful and curious Max Mara sunglasses that are wearable pieces of art. The Prism is symbolic of the many faceted sides of the contemporary Max Mara woman. Inspired by the perfectly proportioned union of round and square shapes, it reflects the harmonic balance between femininity and strength, aesthetic and functionality, instinct and rationality.

Shantell’s original artwork was digitally reproduced and decomposed into 1000 different pieces which were integrated into a feminine sunglass style, with bold volumes and cat-eye shape. The sunglasses are constructed...
