We photographed Maja outside the Dries Van Noten spring/summer ’15 show in Paris, and loved the way she capped off her outfit with these oversized Linda Farrow 203 sunglasses. Oversized yet slim in profile, the acetate frames are made in Japan and feature a rounded lens shape that curves into a subtle cat-eye. Maja liked that these frames were light, and that they sat comfortably on her nose (thanks to the laminated nose pads). The temples are the ultimate in luxury, wrapped in elegant, textured snakeskin, and treated with a navy dye, while 22-carat, gold-plated studs add refinement. The glasses are finished with the Linda Farrow logo, printed in signature white on the inverted side of the temple.
Tracy Sedino is the marketing director for Linda Farrow, and her go-to pair of shades are the “LFL 38” frames from Linda Farrow Luxe. These bold, cat-eye sunglasses are wrapped in watersnake skin and finished with titanium hardware and 24kt gold-plated accents. The dramatic silhouette is chunky yet elegant, and flatters her style perfectly. Though the Linda Farrow brand now has more than 150 styles of sunglasses available – not to mention rotating collaborations with everyone from Jeremy Scott and The Row, to Prabal Gurung and Oscar de la Renta – Tracy says she’s been wearing this same model for the past eight years. It seems as though everyone has a favourite pair of Linda Farrow glasses – now we know which one is at the top of Tracy Sedino’s list!
Alex’s sense of personal style extends all the way to his glasses – in this case, a pair of bold and chunky acetate frames from Linda Farrow. Alex told us that eyewear is “one of the best accessories,” and that he chooses his sunglasses based on how he wants to express his personality that day. This pair of Linda Farrow “71” shades were perfect for a day by the pool. The “D-frame” style glasses are straighter at the top, before curving smoothly at the corners and into a bulging nose bridge. Gold-plated titanium studs add a luxurious touch, while the nylon lenses keep things casual. Laminated nose-pads help the angular frames sit gently (and properly) on the face.
We spotted blogger Gracie Carroll in these amazing python-wrapped Linda Farrow shades during the recent Viktor & Rolf event at The Room at The Bay. Note the details in these “Luxe 94” frames: in addition to the snakeskin, the sunglasses feature a chunky bridge that curves elegantly around the nose, and gold-plated titanium studs to accent the ridges and temples. A true fashion girl, Gracie owns more than 20 pairs of sunglasses, but we gotta say, these ones will be hard to top!
Fritz Helder is a musician and all-around artist, who has been wearing glasses all of his life. In fact, he admitted to us at the Viktor & Rolf party that he owns more than 40 pairs of eyewear! Though Fritz described himself as “shy” when we asked to take his photo, these amazing Linda Farrow frames and the energy in the pictures totally say otherwise!
We love the accents on Levi Coltof’s Linda Farrow Luxe sunglasses: with python leather and a touch of 24kt gold, they were a spectacle in themselves.
We found out that this is just one of Levi’s 80 pairs of sunglasses, which comes in handy when working with bright lights as a commercial director.
Look closely at these frames (from UK-based label Linda Farrow’s collaboration with The Row) and you’ll see that it’s all in the details. From the thicker framing along the brows, to the leather hinge and metal chevron, these little accents elevate the classic Wayfarer frame into something that commands a second (or third) look.
