Vinylize Sunglasses

Selected the 30 June 2008 by Joe the "tire-remover"

So today we’re back to sunglasses with Tipton Eyeworks and their Vinylize glasses. An idea launched by Hungarian designers Zach and Zoltan Tipton, these sunglasses are made from old vinyl records. Originally launched in the USA, the collection arrived in France in 2005. It was an extremely exclusive release, to say the least. I love the Alvydas style, it’s very rock‘n’roll. You need the look and the right face to go with it, but the end result can be wicked!

These are very beautiful sunglasses, which you can admire close up at “Les Plus Belles Lunettes du Monde”. However, be aware that they cost €295. Ok, they’re a little cheaper if you tell them we sent you :) NB: if you take a look at Tipton.hu (good luck!), you will discover a new range they’ve just launched: Cinématique. The key concept of this collection of 10 models is the use of 16 and 35mm films. For the record, these are all films dating from after 1989 (fall of communism). You can see the films in the arms of the glasses, between 2 layers of acetate. If you insist, we’ll talk about them again after the summer with (prescription) glasses…
