So Soleil

A friend of mine is an eyewear designer in Paris and I just received these shades from him today. With their delivery conveniently coinciding with this absolutely gorgeous weather, I am pretty pumped to rock them.

Perfect for me with a pair of short, biker-short-esque leggings, a loose white t-shirt and my bright red patent-leather flats. Yes.

The designer is Thierry Lasry and he sells his collection here in New York at Gruen Optika, a chain of chic optical stores located throughout the city.

Unlike the “designer” sunglasses we are all familiar with—licensed eyewear lines having nothing to do with fashion houses like Chanel, Dior and Gucci---these shades are not mass produced in China. These are real deal handmade in France beauties and everyone should own a pair.

Final Word: View the collection on his website or dip into Gruen and check them out for yourselves.
