After a sweltering weekend in the city, we thought it was about time we showed you some awesome designer sunglasses in our Frame of the Week series. For serious protection with a whole lot of style, we look to ic! berlin this week.
Our frame stylist Alex is wearing a pair of ic! berlin Nameless 2012 sunglasses in Piano Rough. This is a combination frame, meaning it’s made up of multiple materials for a cool look. The front rims feature a subtle dark brown pattern with a rectangular silhouette, accented with a strip of white around the edges. Its arms are attached via a screw-less hinge, using interlocking pieces for a super flexible and resilient pair of shades that you don’t have to worry about loosening or falling apart. The arms are constructed with titanium, which gives this frame its ultra light weight feel as well.
Nameless 2012 is also available in plain black, smokey grey with a matte marbled design and graphite arms, and brown with green accents and coffee-colored titanium.
Did you know we have a huge new selection of ic! berlin eyewear available on our website? We just added a ton of new styles of eyeglasses and sunglasses for men, women, and kids. Many of the children’s frames were actually designed by children themselves! Check them out and let us know what catches your eye.
An effortlessly cool look can be a difficult thing achieve; it requires a certain amount of confidence and, more importantly, the right accessories. Local musician Chas Bronz (full disclosure: he is the lucky man married to our store manager) knows how to easily pull this off, and it’s with a pair of designer sunglasses.
Bronz is wearing Ray Ban Wayfarer (RB2140) sunglasses in a limited edition style from the second Rare Prints collection, which features a metro map on the inner surface of the arms, an image that connects him to his urban surroundings in Boston and hometowns of Chicago and Milwaukee. He was recently profiled in Vibe Magazine as part of the new album “Dancing on the Charles,” featuring local talent in the Boston dance scene.
“I know that there is no secret pertaining to the music industry here in Boston. We are an extremely diverse city, and a strong and loving community,” he told the magazine.
Ray Ban sunglasses mimic the city with its diverse selection and strong community that loves its products. While the pattern on this frame is no longer in production, there are plenty of other looks to choose from in the latest special series of rare prints, including patchwork and surf patterns.
