Hooked: Balmain for Oliver Peoples

July 7, 2010

Sure, independence is great and all, but there’s something about Jersey BBQs that brings out monarchy nostalgia in us. Well, leave it to Balmain to indulge our inner sympathizer with its eyewear collaboration with Oliver Peoples. With oversized lenses and graphic frames, these architectural shades pack just enough royal punch, the perfect topper for Christophe Decarnin’s army of rock stars.

We’re particularly smitten with the latest incarnation, hitting stores any day now. Definitely worthy of some fireworks, the Balmain II re-imagines the classic aviator in several gilded options, merging classic Old World decadence with sturdy American edge. Of course, you might have to pawn some royal jewels to get your hands on them, with their retail price of $595. But at least you know they won’t fall into the wrong hands—you can’t afford them to.
