Linda Farrow at long last!

Posted on July 28th, 2014 by admin  |  Comments Off

“Timeless in design,” the Linda Farrow homepage boasts, “uncompromising in quality, unabashedly luxurious…”

If the latest selection from the Linda Farrow line are any indication, these words ring true for the UK design and collaboration company. Designer Linda Farrow, one of the first to regard sunglasses as fashion, originally established her company in 1970. With the relaunch of her collection in 2003, Linda Farrow has collaborated with many designers and artists to continue in the tradition of cutting-edge optical creations. Now at Gafas, find the result of partnerships with Phillip Lim, Dries Van Noten, the Row and, of course, the opulent Linda Farrow Luxe line of fantastic sunglasses and eyeglasses.

Frame of the Day: Porsche Design Aviators

Posted on July 20th, 2014 by admin  |  Comments Off

Just in time for the Honda Indy Toronto today… take a look at the line of sunglasses by Porsche Design. Established in 1972 by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, grandson of the Porsche founder, Porsche Design created car-related accessories that embodied the essence of the classic Porsche sports car: luxurious and linear, distinguished by its functionality of form and sleek, clean design.

Combining a timeless aesthetic with a punch of modernism, this classic aviator shape and unadorned gunmetal frame encases bold pink mirrored lenses. Flashy and classy.
