A pair of shades is a pair of shades. that’s the way it tends to be nowadays with the woolly mass market coin-devils squeezing out the more innovative, idiosyncratic designers. However, fighting back the constrictive market forces like courageous members of the style justice league, intriguing new outfit CoLab have handed global vibe doyens Eboy, Geoff McFetridge and Rockin Jellybean a free-hand over a new line of eye-catching sunglasses. The limited range (just 1000 of each type) of handmade specials. Insect-light and with a touch of wit (such as the geek specs with worn leather tabs on the bridge to replicate the elstoplast effect) these modern classics are the perfect touch to summer, at home or abroad. Striking the right vintage notes for the modern gent, don’t be surprised to see the high street yoink the designs for their own ranges later in the year.
