Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Oliver Peoples and Balmain are back for Round II. And I think you’ll agree, it’s even better the second time around.
Once again, under the leadership of Christophe Decarnin, the new collection of Oliver Peoples x Balmain sunglasses continues to present Decarnin’s signature aesthetic, mixing high-energy Parisian style with a strong silhouette, with new and better proportions.
If you want the best in design and quality, look no further. With this collaboration, fashion enthusiasts get the best of both worlds. The new collection consists of two unisex sunglass styles that are sleek and thoroughly modern in design.
The Balmain 1, a rock-inspired mixed media frame utilizes an acetate frame front and smooth metal top bar (already out), while the Balmain 2 is a fresh interpretation of the classic double bridge aviator (coming soon). Both frames come in two different color ways and retail for a cool $595.
And while you might not have enough money left over after buying these shades to venture too far during the summer beach season, at least you’ll have the satisfaction in knowing, no one else will look as good.
