J. Logan Horne

We photographed Logan in these Oliver Peoples x Balmain shades during a cocktail party at the Mondrian Hotel in Miami. These limited-edition frames were part of a collaboration between the California eyewear brand and the Paris couture house in 2010, and fuses Oliver Peoples’ laidback vibe with Balmain’s edgy, bold aesthetic. The unisex style features an exaggerated teardrop lens shape held together by a metal brow bar that wraps around the temples. Tinted gradient grey lenses add a subtle contrast to the black acetate frame, which was handmade in Italy and Japan.

A fashion lover and celebrity stylist, Logan casually paired these $600 shades with a T-shirt and shorts – a trend mirrored by the likes of Katie Holmes and Fergie, who have both been pictured in these sunglasses while running errands around town. As for Logan, he liked these flat-top shades so much that he bought the second pair in the collaboration – an all-metal frame in silver and gold – to add to his collection.
