Eyewear has become a desired canvas for artist’s in recent time with Oakley enticing some great names, and now it is Ray-Ban’s time. Taking the famed Wayfarer frames, Chris Mendoza has made his mark in a fashion he is renown for. Limited to 100 pieces his work pays tribute to the early years of graffiti and come with a signed and numbered case. The release this Friday, November 28 at Sunglass Hut SoHo will be aided with 25% of the proceeds will go to Give the Gift of Sight, a charity that brings glasses to the world’s poor.
“Chris’s personal history with the brand dates back to his childhood when he’d see them on his father, who played for the Nicaragua national football team. The senior Mendoza, a close friend of Pele, defined hip for the young artist with his Wayfarers. And nothing much has changed”.
