Made in The Shade

The Blackberrie has adopted a new mantra this summer; Light. Up. Happy. We’ve abridged it to LUH and we’re aggressively attempting to apply it to all aspects of life. Although it’s a bit of a self-help strategy, all this “Summer of Love” hoopla is making our new philosophy seem tres hippie-chic.

Since we’re being LUH, I thought we should share some love, in the form of sunglasses of course. These shades were recently released in London by Biba, the great-great grandmama of psychedelic fashion. Even Anna Wintour logged some time there as a shopgirl in the swingin’ sixties.

These sixties-inspired heart-shaped frames are the first foray into eyewear by the London-based retailer. They are available in a kaleidoscope of colors like tortoise, black, red and turquoise just to name a few. I don’t yet know if they’ll hit stateside, but you can buy them direct from Biba for 135 pounds. With our bangin’ economy that’s only like $300! Wait, that’s not LUH. Shame on me.

Final Word: Peace, love and sunglasses for all.

Very pretty. A much more sophisticated form of the plastic Lolita frame.
