We spotted Shaw in Montreal, decked out in Supreme shades and sneakers. These “Frances” frames are from Supreme’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection and feature a stretched oval shape that’s not for the faint of heart. Handmade in Japan, these acetate frames feature green lenses and a deep tortoiseshell shade. An engraved “Supreme” gold plaque on the temples adds to the exaggerated, androgynous design.
As for the name? These sunglasses are named after Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Kurt Cobain. Kurt’s signature pair of sunglasses featured the same mod-ish yet futuristic design, playing off themes of rebellion and street culture that still run through Supreme’s collection of clothing and accessories today.
