Vigil Abloh is continuing his marathon of collaborations, linking up with Sunglass Hut on a collection of sunglasses. These were teased for a while now on various celebrities and in the Off-White AW18 show so there’s sure to be a relieved bunch among all of you.
The collection is called “For Your Eyes Only” and is aimed at a new target group, with Abloh being quoted saying: “Sunglass Hut and Luxottica offer Off-White exposure to a wide audience that might not know about the brand.” On the shift to designing sunglasses, he noted: “I’ve always thought of sunglasses as an important accessory in a fashion context. It’s a small object that can give you the nuances of a brand’s opinion on design. For me, I was looking to incorporate classic shapes from the past with a youthful modern elegance. All lenses are flat, which gives each style the same edge. The shapes are all unisex, but I wanted to play with the ladylike emotion of the runway show muse.”
With regards to the designs, the collection features three thick acetate unisex styles. Regarding how to get them, the collaborators are set to launch a pop up at Selfridges for five days, starting March 26th.
