We spotted New York-based artist Yazmany Arboleda in these Paul Smith “Chaucer” sunglasses. Made from a mix of plastic and glass, these vintage-inspired shades feature a classic keyhole bridge, P3 lens shape and “crystal” frames. The purple tint is more unique than the traditional brown or black gradient lenses, and we love how it contrasts with the transparent frames. The outside right temple tip features the Paul Smith signature logo, while a ‘Cherish The Day’ quote in Paul’s handwriting is imprinted on the temple-tip interior. We also love the shape of these frames – not too small but not too large, fitting comfortably between fashion and function.
We’re digging Devan’s laid-back vibe in these Paul Smith “Pirroni” frames. A handsome, masculine style, these rectangular frames are handcrafted from a polished plastic, then finished in a classic black colour. The temple exterior features unique, custom, diamond-shaped pins with a subtle “P” and “S” imprint, inspired by Paul Smith cufflinks. The arms narrow and arch just above the ears.
Devan stumbled into these glasses after originally trying on a pair of Tom Ford frames that were too small for his face. The wider and slightly angular shape of these Paul Smith glasses fit him just right!
We photographed Andres wearing his Paul Smith “Larkin” frames at the Alchemist x Colette Pop-Up in Miami. Andres had been looking for a pair of transparent frames for awhile, and these “Clear Crystal” specs fit the bill. Silver and black circle pins add just a touch of “colour” on the sides. We love the design of these frames, which add a touch of fun to the brand’s dapper, British-inspired style. The soft rectangular shape works on most faces, and the clear frames make these a great option for women as well. As with all Paul Smith glasses, signature details abound, from the designer’s signature printed on the inside of the arms, to the sun-shaped plaque and “Cherish the Day” quote on the interior tips.
Peter’s Buddy Holly-esque glasses are part of the limited edition “294” frame that British designer Paul Smith did for Oliver Peoples. This unisex style may channel an indie hipster look, but it was actually inspired by a pair found in Smith’s first collection in 1994. A modified version of the frame was introduced into Smith’s “Spectacles” collection in 2006.
This pair, made for Oliver Peoples, features a thick and bold design made from high-quality acetate. Peter is wearing the “Cobalt” color, with hints of dark navy and black, and a subtle tortoiseshell front. A great pair of quintessential, everyday glasses, this is also the pair that Smith wears himself!
Moya’s got our attention in these limited-edition “Seaton” frames from Paul Smith. These summery-ready shades look perfect in turquoise, and a unique rubberized finish that adds visual interest and texture. The square-shape rims and angular brow line add to the oversized look, while the polarized brown lenses give these sunglasses a retro-inspired touch.
As with all Paul Smith glasses, a “Good Day Sunshine” quote in Paul’s handwriting is imprinted on the inside of the temples, while the outside temple tip features the Paul Smith signature.
We love how Lily put her look together: the shawl coat worn over cut-off shorts and leggings say “casual day out,” while the Louis Vuitton bag lets you know she’s paying attention to the details. Further proof of that: the shade of purple on her Paul Smith frames perfectly compliments the purple color of her hat.
