So, this is the third post in my I want – I got Editorials group. I was blogging for the award-winning MasterCard Stylicity project this season and I organized three editorial shoots for the stores Philip Sparks, Nomad and Spectacle. The shots turned out really well so I’ve decided to showcase some of them here too. This is Spectacle.
I did the modelling for this shoot because I LOVE sunglasses and I was looking to pick up a pair myself. Dave Yan and I had a great time and the staff at Spectacle were very helpful. They didn’t mind us almost taking over the shop.
Spectacle has a ton of sunglasses and regular eyewear in the shop. It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted. Previous “i wants” from Charlotte Olympic x Linda Farrow and Prabal Gurung x Linda Farrow didn’t look good one me at all. I also tried on some pairs from Claire Goldsmith and Thierry Lasry which I really liked
In the end, I bought two pairs of RetroSuperFutures. They were reasonably priced compared to some of the other shades I have in my collection. One pair was featured in The Spectacled and the other are pictured above. One thing I learned at Spectacle is that if you see something you like buy it right away. They normally only stock one pair of any eyewear style. Some of these styles can be reordered but not all.
You can see the rest of the shots in the gallery below.
I haven’t added any new sunglasses to my collection this summer. It’s kinda making me depressed in a weird way. Karir Eyewear is bringing some great snakeskin Linda Farrow Luxe sunglasses to the store this upcoming fall.
The Linda Farrow Luxe collection features handmade sunglasses using high end materials like horn, leather, titanium and snakeskin.
The shapes are classic but the snakeskin makes them different from the rest.
I love this collaboration of Linda Farrow and Roisin Murphy. It’s part of Linda Farrow’s Projects. They have joined forces to create two pairs of sunglasses sold that can be found at Colette. The sunglasses come in two options: 24 carat gold plated or silver plated.
