OAKLEY to do Balenciaga Sunglasses
The first ever Balenciaga sunglasses collection will be made by Oakley. Seems that sunglasses are the new accessory du jour, obviously our ever warming world and increased movement into urban centers with their glaring reflective glass towers of death, aka skyscrapers, has something to do with it. Perpetual summer is here.
Oakley's designs will be unveiled in October and are purported to have a futuristic, robotic but hand forged feeling to them, perhaps an allusion to infamous Balenciaga metal leggings from S/S 07 that have been in a million editorials.
