Caroline Baumann

Caroline Baumann is the Director of the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, and we spotted her at Design Miami 2013 in these “Delta” sunglasses from French eyewear brand, Waiting for the Sun. Drawing influence from both Californian surf culture and chic Parisian nights, these frames lend an urban, graphic edge to Caroline’s outfit. The frames are handmade from bamboo, then treated and painted for a smooth matte finish.

Caroline bought these frames when she was vacationing in the Marais district of Paris this summer. She loved the distinct shape – and so do we. The boxy silhouette extends to the extra-wide nose bridge and slight cat eye. This shape works well for people who want to create some angles to their face without going too crazy.
