Julia Gogosha

Anyone who’s anyone in the eyewear industry knows about Julia Gogosha. As the founder and owner of Gogosha Optique, she’s the consummate eyewear fan – a fashion lover who’s not afraid to experiment when it comes to accessorizing with her glasses, and a storeowner who eschews what’s “hot” in favour of seeking out something a little more unique.

We photographed Julia outside her Silverlake store in these limited-edition Miroslava Duma x Thierry Lasry sunglasses. The Russian style blogger and the French eyewear designer teamed up for this bold and outsized pair of shades, made from a mosaic of vintage acetate taken from Lasry’s personal collection. Each piece is assembled by hand from individual pieces of acetate, making every frame one of a kind. The subtle cat eye gives it a hint of retro, while the sleek, gold arms up the sex appeal.

Julia paired her sunglasses with Loeffler Randall shoes, a Bridge & Burn wrap dress and a Rag & Bone scarf worn as a turban. As for how she got her hands on these super exclusive shades? Well, she just called up Thierry and asked! We told you people knew who she was.
