Ray Ban’s classic 1956 Wayfarer has been modernised with a slick new folding frame, and a customisable range of lens options, frames, materials, and temples in a variety of colours. Comes complete with a small leather case that can be engraved.
Jean Paul Gaultier x Eastpak
French designer Jean Paul Gaultier has teamed up with Eastpak to produce two ranges of backpacks, inspired by Gaultier’s iconic catwalk pieces. The Pilot Backpack is limited to only
125 pieces each of the khaki and nude versions. Part of the proceeds go to charity.
One of the oldest American eyewear brands is celebrating its centenary with the 100 Year Anniversary Collection. The highlight is the Lemtosh Wood, inspired by founder Hyman Moscot’s wooden pushcarts that he used to sell ready-made eyeglasses before opening the first shop in 1915.
