SupperClub Eyewear

supper.jpg

We don't what we love more about SupperClub's new line of sunglasses, the thick acetates or that bad ass knife logo across the temple. The frames are classic in their silhouettes, but amplified with chunky frames that definitely set them apart from the rest.

The line is launching with four styles, each built from hand-made 8mm Zyl Cellulose acetate with polarized CR-39 lenses and five-barrel hinges. They also come with a clever eyewear case that collapses into a flat sliver when not in use.

$190, SupperClub

We're not sure why rounder frames aren't a little more popular these days. The classic silhouette has been a favorite of some of the most influential people on the planet. Persol's got their own take on it and a handful of great colors to choose from.

The style's circular shape is wrapped in Persol's signature details from the mini Supreme Arrows to the little Meflecto marks on the temples. They've also complemented the metal earstems and nosebridge with various acetate colors and polarized lenses.

Steven Alan Andre Sunglasses

Steven Alan's newest pair of sunglasses is a little different than what we're used to seeing from the expert shirtmaker. Shorter and and rectangular, the frames have a slight scowl, especially with the eyebrow-like details at the top of the frame.

The frames are made from cellulose acetate sourced from Northern Italy, five barrel rose gold plated hinges, a gingham-lined carrying case, and it might be a shorter style, but at 59mm its a wider fit to give it that imposing presence.

When you're packing light the last thing you want to get in the way is a clunky pair of sunglasses. There are a number of great folding options to save you space from a variety of brands and our new favorite comes from Japanese accessory brand, Hobo.

Their folding glasses come in a sunglass or prescription frame and was created in collaboration with Kaneko Optical. Each frame is made from celluloid fiber and features arrow details at the temples on a matte black or gloss black frame and you also get a pigskin pouch to pack it in for travel.

Warby Parker Beacon Collection

Those Warby Parker guys are a busy bunch these days and while we could complain that there's too much coming out, it's hard to ignore that they every release has a handful of designs that are definitely worth noting.

Today they've released the Beacon Collection, two unique shapes designed for the sun or prescription wear. The first style, the Ingram, takes the wayfarer shape and slims it down with a thin frame, dipped browline, and squared-off lenses. The Garrett takes a more aggressive approach with a flat-top brow and a keyhole nosebridge.

$95-$150, Warby Parker

Ray-Ban Wayfarer Denim

Ray-Ban has been having a field day with materials lately. We've seen everything from solid gold aviators to leather Warfarers and even an aluminum take on the always-classic Clubmaster. So what's next? How about some denim on your face?

Now, it might sound like an odd fit for a pair of sunglasses, but take a good look at the frame and you'll have to agree that it makes for a good pair of shades. They've taken the Wayfarer shape and swathed strong layers of denim with polypropylene and acetate that are fused in a stratification process that reaches temperatures of up to 200 degrees to create each frame.
