Ann Demeulemeester for Linda Farrow
Ann Demeulemeester and Linda Farrow present their first sunglasses collaboration - a collection of eyewear that captures "the light, the shadow, the emotion of black and white, and the rock poetry" that is the very essence of the Ann Demeulemeester label.

At the age of 19 Anna-Karin Karlsson started working in an optician in the Saville Row area of London. She trained in the now nearly extinct art of spectacle
making, and was soon designing and making bespoke eyewear for high-end customers including royalty. Karlsson flourished amongst the fashion scene in
the area, and is now making spectacular spectacles and sunglasses for celebrities and other daring clients.
Christian Roth has designed iconic eyewear for over 30 years - back when celebrities chose what they wanted to wear rather than what they were given by stylists, his frames were prominent amongst the music and art crowd. Andy Warhol himself was a fan, and arguably the most famous wearer was Nirvana's Kurt Cobain.
Lifelong friends John Juniper and Jeff Solorio founded DITA in Los Angeles in 1995 with the mission to create innovative, finely crafted eyewear with a
totally unique look and feel. The look is edgy yet elegant with an East meets West aesthetic and design influences ranging from Hollywood’s glamorous
Golden Age to the mechanized beauty of the Industrial Revolution. DITA has a cult-like following amongst the world’s most influential celebrities,
stylists and trendsetters.
Dries van Noten for Linda Farrow
Dries van Noten and Linda Farrow's long standing collaboration is heavily influenced by vintage styles, updated using angular shapes and modern colours.
Samal Design started as an experimental project in 2012, but has developed into a unique accessories line. Inspiration for the collections comes from art
déco to urban constructivism and 80s videogames with a modern twist.
In 2009 a pair of glacier military goggles from the Second World War were found on a summit of the Dolomite mountains. The recovered goggles inspired two
local friends who share a passion for eyewear and design to start out on a research mission to recover the essence of eyewear. Hapter glasses are made
by an exclusive industrial process tying together artisanship and high technology, and have won multiple international design awards. This is eyewear
like no other.
Jeremy Scott for Linda Farrow
We love Jeremy Scott's kooky (and sometimes controversial) collaboration with Linda Farrow. Championed by celebs such as Lady Gaga and Beyonce, the frames are pure fun.
Kuboraum are masks designed on the face of those who wear them, masks that highlight personality and emphasise character. Kuboraum has no logo. It is a
mask with its own look and power, but as soon as you wear it, the mask doesn’t highlight itself, but it highlights the personality and features of
the person wearing it. Kuboraum’s identity is about this relationship.
Linda Farrow was a fashion designer in the 1970´s - one of the first to treat sunglasses as fashion - and a pioneer of many of the shapes we see today.
In 2003, whilst rummaging through the family's warehouse, Farrow's son Simon Jablon discovered a back catalogue of glasses from this era, and together
with Tracey Sedino, relaunched the Linda Farrow label. It is now recognised as one of the world's leading luxury eyewear brands.
Matthew Williamson for Linda Farrow
Matthew Williamson's sunglasses collection for Linda Farrow is colourful and fun, just how we like our summer too.
Mykita presents its first Studio collection - innovation and cutting edge design for its own line of products, as well as the collaborations. This is some
very strong eyewear, using concepts never seen before.
MYKITA + Bernhard Willhelm
German fashion designer Bernhard Willhelm is known for his outlandish designs. Willhelm has teamed up with the technical expertise of MYKITA to produce a vibrant yet super-stylish range of eyewear of fantastic quality, including utilising the brand's Mylon technology.
MYKITA + Damir Doma
Damir Doma's "intellectual and poetic" designs are perfectly complemented by the collaboration with MYKITA. The aim of the sunglasses collection was to
translate the traditional round form into something modern, and create an iconic object - mission accomplished.
MYKITA + Maison Margiela
MYKITA and Maison Margiela are linked by a shared concept of the creative process – the reinterpretation of historical forms, radical experimentation with constructions and an unconventional approach to materials.
MYKITA MYLON blurs the border between fashion and sports. State-of-the-art design coupled with a material that is lightweight, adjustable and extremely durable. The manufacturing process for MYLON has won MYKITA recognition in the form of the iF material award.
No 21 for Linda Farrow
No 21 - that's numero ventuno - is the diffusion line of Alessandro dell'Acqua. This season the label has teamed up with Linda Farrow to produce some mega-statement
glasses. Oversized and very glamorous.
Thierry Lasry was raised in a highly creative environment by an optician father and a designer mother. Lasry launched his eponymous sunglass line in 2006,
and has created a sunglass brand aimed at a certain elite looking to mark themselves out from the crowd. The names given to each model are always provocative
New York based designer Thom Browne's eyewear collections are as detail focused as his tailoring. Each pair is meticulously made by hand in Japan, and feature slimline metal arms with the label's signature red, white and blue striped tips.
VAVA is inspired by the post industrial world, in which previously thriving cities were forced to reinvent themselves to survive, as well as the Techno movement which came out of the rebirth of cities like Detroit, and later on Berlin. The collection is handmade by a small factory in Italy, which gives it freedom of creation and outstanding quality.
Victoria Beckham Eyewear
Hand made in Italy, Victoria Beckham´s sunglasses feature beautiful detailing and the subtlest of branding. Nobody does an oversized aviator like VB, and
this season's is the best selection we have seen - from any label - for a while.
Yaz Kurhan was born in Istanbul and travelled extensively as a child, due to her father's position as an Ambassador. After studying fashion in Paris, Yaz
landed coveted internships with both Alexander McQueen and Maison Martin Margiela, before eventually getting a job as Jeremy Scott's first assistant.
Yazbukey, her own similarly quirky accessories line was launched soon after.
