Chip Kidd

Chip Kidd is a renowned art director, author, and illustrator, whose C.V. reads like a best-sellers table at Barnes & Noble: cover designs for David Sedaris, Augusten Burroughs and Haruki Murakami (among others), co-author and designer of “True Prep” (the sequel to the beloved “Official Preppy Handbook”) and an original graphic novel published by DC Comics. He’s also an award-winning photographer and a highly sought-after lecturer. Oh – and he loves glasses.

We were lucky enough to meet Chip at the recent Toronto Comic Arts Festival, where he was sporting a pair of smart and savvy Giorgio Armani glasses. Though they give off an “old school” vibe at first glance, the slim profile and detailing on the temples give these frames a sharp, modern twist. The egg-shaped rims frame Chip’s eyes perfectly and serve to compliment his whimsical outfit. The look is casual and confident with a dose of good, old-fashioned fun.

Kenan Igdebeli

Kenan Igdebeli is a model who we spotted outside the Public School Fall/Winter 2013 presentation during New York Fashion Week. Originally from Montreal, Kenan’s making an impression in the Big Apple with these Giorgio Armani sunglasses. We love the contrast between the stark black frame and the gold bridge and temples. And though these shades can be hard to pull off, we aren’t surprised that Kenan manages to make them look good.
