Fashion Meets Function
Sunglasses not only complete your look, but provide essential sun protection as well. Your eyes are vulnerable to sun damage, just like your skin. Exposure to UV radiation (UVA and UVB rays) from the sun has been linked to eye disease like cataracts, macular degeneration, and skin cancer around the eyelids.
Choosing the Right Sunglasses
The right sunglasses for you should match your style and protect your eyes from the sun. Look for frames that fit close to your face and cover the majority of your eye area, including the sides. The lenses should block 100% of UVA and UVB light.
Lens color and finishes are more of a personal preference. Depending on what you will be using the sunglasses for, you might benefit from certain types of sunglasses lenses. Polarized lenses, for example, can be beneficial if you spend a lot of time at the beach or on the water.

A collection of frames that are a mashup of my colliding aesthetics with special attention paid to sculpting and tactility. They are artful but wearable. By using laborious production techniques and a lot of handwork, an inner silhouette is encased in an unexpectedly fresh outer shape. This seamless fusion of two frames and the juxtaposition of contrasting form and color create a design tension that is thoroughly modern yet comfortably familiar. A paradox. Like me.
