Isabel Marant x Oliver Peoples

Didn't I tell you? Wahahaha! Well, Isabel Marant already said it so it's not like it was a fashion scoop exclusively by us but now you get to see the real thing. We saw 2 shapes, an oversized round one and an aviator one. So, there's not much to it. And they retail for $365.

"  On the heels of his 2010 collaboration with Balmain, Oliver Peoples has now joined forces with Parisian designer Isabel Marant to create a limited-edition collection of sunglasses. Available from February, the collection takes cues from Isabel Marant’s rock ‘n’ roll romantic aesthetic with two pairs of sunglasses designed with a distinctly seventies vibe.  As for the designs, ‘Daria’, boasting a round, slightly oversized  shape and ‘Matt’, boasting a twist on the classic aviator, will both be available to customize with one of five colored lens choices ranging from pink to light gray. Each is sold with a sunglasses box, fabric pouch and cleaning cloth featuring Marant’s favorite character, Mr Hatman, making the result a stylish mini collection with a distinctly Californian feel – just in time for Marant to celebrate the one-year anniversary of her LA store.

The Isabel Marant x Oliver Peoples’ sunglasses are €365 each and will be available from February in Isabel Marant boutiques, Oliver Peoples’ stores and select international vendors."

So for the price it says 365 EUR so I'm not sure about 365 USD although I've read somewhere that it's 425 USD. I don't know why it's that expensive. Maybe the lenses are quite expensive.

Here are the designs:
The round oversized are named "Daria" after Daria Werbowy I guess. Hehehe
And the aviator is called "Matt" I don't know why maybe it's the name of her son.

So if you know me, you know I'm quite disappointed. The shapes are tired and boring. I wish it had the Isabel Marant aesthetic which is taking something that's there and raising it to a whole new level. She should't have gone for the safe route. Well, anyways thet do are effortless styles like Isabel Marant. I mean the Balmain for Oliver Peoples were amazing. I wish Isabel would do a second collection.

Anyways, ta-ta for now! :)
