This month’s 944 Detroit Swag Giveaway Features a Amazing Pair of Special Edition Badgley Mischka Boyd Sunglasses from Urban Optiques. Enter Now for Your Chance to Win Them!
Okay, summer is pretty much over, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of sun-filled mornings and afternoons ahead of you requiring a great pair of shades.
In celebration of the Fall fashion season, 944 Detroit and Urban Optiques are giving away another fab pair of couture sunglasses: This time a pair of Special Edition Badgley Mischka Boyd acetate aviators with 18K white gold couture lenses valued at $780 dollars.
A unisex sunglass, the Boyd has been spotted on everyone from Brad Pitt to singer Kelly Rowland to models Heidi Klum and Alessandra Ambrosio. While the Boyd is celeb favorite, no one has yet been seen in the Special Edition version of the Boyd we are giving away this month. So if you win the Boyd, you’ll be setting the trend here.
Who Makes the Big, Oversized, Retro-Style Eyeglasses Spotted on Lindsay Lohan?
Regardless of what you think (or if you even care) about Lindsay Lohan’s personal-problems, run-ins with the law, probation violations and occasional crimes of fashion, Lilo has always had great taste in eyewear and sunglasses.
So we were kind of tickled when Lohan was spotted over the weekend shopping for eyeglasses and sunglasses at the West Hollywood Destination: Sama boutique. According to Just Jared, Lindsay had just reported to the courthouse for her probation check-in and then headed over to Destination: Sama to shop for sunnies.
Now, I’ve never had to report to a probation officer (and intend to keep it that way), but I can’t think of any better activity to do after meeting with local law enforcement than to go shopping for some new sunglasses. In fact, I can’t think of any better activity to do anytime than shop for eyewear. But then again, it’s my business.
The Gold Aviator Sunglasses Seen on Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw Character in Sex and The City 2 Are Causing an Eyewear Buzz. Who Makes Carrie’s Gold Sunglasses in SATC 2 and Where Can I Buy Them?
With this week’s box office debut ofSex and The City 2, we’ve received a deluge of e-mails asking who makes the gold aviator sunglasses that Sarah Jessica Parker wears in her reprise of the Carrie Bradshaw role in Sex and The City 2?
The good news is we’ve identified Carrie’s gold aviators from SATC 2: They are Mykita & Bernhard Willhelm’s “Franz” Limited-Edition Aviator Sheet-Metal Sunglasses ($525.)
The bad news is you’ll likely be waiting some time to get your hands on these sunglasses (maybe as long as the end of summer.) The Mykitas have been on back order atPatricia Fields since the gold sunglasses first showed up on Sarah Jessica Parker in advanced publicity shots last year. No word on when they’ll be available.
How to Still Get Carrie’s Gold Plated Look: Sama
Although Urban Optiques doesn’t carry Mykita, the lens coating technology that is used on the Mykita “Franz” Limited-Edition Gold Aviator sunglasses inSex and The City 2was actually developed by Sama Eyewear out of Los Angeles and is currently available on a wide-range of Sama, Badgley Mischka and Loree Rodkin eyeCouture models at Urban Optiques.
Badgley Mischka’s Spring/Summer 2010 Runway Show in Amsterdam Sizzles with a Cavalcade of Chic Sunwear
We love it when designers prominently feature their eyewear lines in their seasonal fashion collections.
It’s even better when they put their eyewear on the runways.
Which is exactly what Mark Badgley and James Mischka did during their Spring/Summer 2010 preview at the 11th Amsterdam International Fashion Week.
The spring/summer ready-to-wear collection from Badgley Mischka was stunning enough on its own.
But what really made it sizzle was Badgley Mischka’s decision to place its couture sunwear on every single model on the catwalk:
This made for one of the most conspicuous displays of sunglasses in any major collection this year (and possibly in history), which of course makes us overjoyed, since we carry both the Badgley Mischka Couture Eyewear Collection and the very sunglass models featured in Amsterdam.
