Former EveryGuyed writer Shareen Sandhu has come back to lend us her insight into the past year in eyewear. Regular Frame Geek readers will attest to her knowledge and ability. A sharp look at the 5 most innovative sets of eyewear from 2010.
5. Madsaki & Effector “fuzz – Killer Whale” Glasses
What’s black and white and geek chic all over? Definitely these frames by Madsaki & Effector, creating a ‘killer whale’ effect of black and white splashed all over the frame.
4. Ørgreen & Arne Jacobsen Limited Edition Swan Chairs & Frames
A furniture company collaborating with an eyewear company? Unheard of. But it worked when these two companies came together to create a limited edition line of frames and chairs.
3. Super & Barney’s CO-OP 25th Anniversary Sunglasses
When Barney’s announced their 25th anniversary for their Co-Op line, Super jumped right in and created this great pair of sunglasses to mark the occasion.
2. Jeremy Scott for Linda Farrow Cafgar Sunglasses
Probably the most unique pair of sunglasses ever, you just can’t have a top 5 list without mentioning the queen of collaborations, Linda Farrow. The Cafgar just does not disappoint, with its unique gold laurel design.
1. Vintage Frames Company & Cazal 951 Mod Col 330 Vintage Sunglasses
Brought back from the proverbial frame grave, the Vintage Frames Company worked hard to bring back a limited amount of these once famous Cazal frames.
