Statement sunglasses make statements and my oversized frames are real loudmouths. They spew “Don’t talk to me, don’t even think it” or “I didn’t sleep last night, don’t judge”. And if they’re pitch-black lenses, they’ll sputter, “I can’t see anything so I might run into you. Move outta the way or get mowed!” If you’re like me, then it’s time to get more publicly affable and your eyewear is a great place to start. So I’m starting with these fun ones by graphic designers Craig and Karl because a “happy statement” is their middle name.
Known for their colorful, graphical work, these glasses look like Craig and Karl’s 2D art has come to life. They’re made in collaboration with big brand Le Specs from Australia, which means they are extremely well-priced at $100/ 12,000yen a pair. They are online at Net a porter, but they’re available in Japan as well. If you’re already friendly then they have your name on them…if not, then at least you can get an A+ in effort. They’re limited edition, so get em while they’re hot!
