The Film Noir Persol eyewear collection pays homage to the icons of 1950′s film scene. Think Steve McQueen, think Marcello Mastroianni. Oh , terrible things to think about- the lack of sex appeal is evident- is it not??? In fact the message of the Film noir is the mystery, the uncontrollable attraction to danger and the seduction at its best. The Gangster, Femme Fatale, Detective and Reporter make up the cast of the “Film Noir Collection,” and take us back to classics such as “Double Indemnity” , “The Killers” “The Third Man” and “Gilda”. Recent film noir masterpiece “L.A. Confidential” should have had all their cast wear Persol’s new collection.
You can buy them here: Illesteva
Was walking past the Nicole Farhi store today and these lovely sunglasses were peeping at me from the window….you can actually buy them online from the Nicole Farhi online shop for 80 £ instead of the shop where they are priced at 110£
I love these glasses because they are so low key. Very simple and elegant yet so technologically advanced. They have the most incredible lenses in them that offer total protection against harmful rays of the sun and enhancing sharp and clear vision. 100 % made of natural materials: lenses are glass and frames are celluloid. Loro Piana teamed up with Barberini, world leader in the production of optical glass solar lenses who creates lenses for glider pilots….
Johan Lindeberg’s brand BLKDNM pairs up with MOSCOT to make incredible sunglasses. So downtown. Getting in touch with my inner rockabilly… THANK YOU SO MUCH BLKDNM!

Head to the Lower East Side for some vintage-inspired frames from the 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s . Their glasses were first being sold from a pushcart on the Lower East Side in 1895 followed briefly with the set up of a shop in 1915. Read more

Daniel and Simon Beckerman, the creators of Super sunglasses are also the publishers of PIG magazine- Italy’s most prestigious independent music and fashion magazine. They make really fun sunglasses with really good quality lenses. I love these as it brings an element of street culture to your look but with Zeiss lenses …and not some super cool sunglasses that you found in a thrift market but once you wear them on the beach you go blind.
