In April we teased all of you with a promise that the “Maria Sherapova” Sunglasses from Tag Heuer were about to arrive at Urban Optiques.
Okay, it took a little longer than expected, but we just received the first Maria Sherapova signature sunglass in from Tag Heuer and it’s amazing:
Actress Megan Fox is the perfect example in our minds of why people need to think of eyeglasses as an accessory, and not just a medical necessity.
Take the eyeglasses that Fox was spotted in last year: As soon as the photos of Megan in her fab eyeglasses hit the Internet, there was a flurry of searches around what frames she was wearing.
How do we know?
Well, we watch stuff like this. It’s part of how we track trends in not just eyewear, but also fashion and accessories. This helps us better predict what to carry in the store, as well as recommend to people what’s going to be stylish this season.
Based in Paris, Lafont is known for its distinctive eyewear designs, which range from artsy and funky, to chic and sophisticated. continue
This was going to be a very special sunglass, Brian explained, with an extremely limited run: Sama was producing only 35 of these sunglasses, and just 10 of them were going to be available to the public through Sama’s small, exclusive network of independent optical boutiques. The remainder would be available for purchase only at the Destination: Sama Beverly Hills, Rome, St. Louis and West Hollywood Boutiques and to a small, inner circle of Sama loyalists.
That’s right: There are only 35 of these sunglasses in the world.
We centered the entire look around the beautifully light and airy purple and orange Diane Von Furstenburg “Layly” Tiger dress, which puts a new, colorful twist on this season’s continued obsession with animal prints.
We tried to carry the “Au Naturale” theme through the entire look, choosing accessories that utilized natural materials like wood and cork: Purple D Squared wood platform heels, a Tahari cork clutch and a wood and gold bangle bracelet to finish it off.
Of course, there are also the Sama Heart of Gold sunglasses, which complement the rich, royal oranges and purples that dominate the ensemble.
Don’t forget to check out the other four looks we put together with the Sama Heart of Gold sunglasses:
With just one more day left in our “Sama Heart of Gold Sunglasses: Five Ways Over Five Days“ Style Series we decided to put together a more casual, street-smart and urban look with the Sama Heart of Gold Sunglasses.
Today’s look starts with a pair of sleek, latex-look leggings from Alice + Olivia paired with a cool, over-sized graphic jersey by Pagano.
We then added the Sama Heart of Gold sunglasses in platinum and 18K white gold, a fantastic Costume National black leather purse with silver accents and finished it off with a dangerous flash of red under the outfit’s monochromatic theme thanks to some truly killer Michette Daniele black leather patch sandals with sky-high red heels.
If the Michette Daniele heels are bit too edgy for your taste, this ensemble also works great with a pair of black leather booties, pumps, slingbacks or even chunky leather knee boots.
