Sharlan’s Yves Saint Laurent glasses are big, bold and quirky – just like her personality. Fitting, since she wanted a pair of frames that people would notice. These unisex frames are made from acetate, and feature an oversized rectangular frame with chunky arms. The glossy finish of the front is juxtaposed with the matte finish of the arms. An embossed golden Yves Saint Laurent logo sits just below the temples, adding a touch of luxury to the otherwise simple pair of frames.
Writer Carole Sabas wanted something that matched her obsession with Terry Richardson, and while the Moscots were too big and Balenciaga didn’t quite fit, these vintage YSL frames proved to be just right. Creator of the popular “Fashion Guides” series, Carole found these 80s, aviator-style frames at Parisian boutique Marc Le Bihan. In related news, Carole recently collaborated with Oliver Peoples on a pair of rainbow-coloured sunglasses, inspired by her love of LA and the eyewear brand’s Wayfarer-style “Braverman” frames. The collaboration is also available at Marc Le Bihan – proof that the writer, and the store, have great taste in glasses.
Tammy is one of those girls that can pull off almost any look – and do so with ease. Case in point: these sculptural YSL frames which Tammy had converted from sunglasses into prescription frames. We love the sleek cat eye and chunky black edges, and though they’re undeniably big and bold, the frames actually work to ground the rest of her outfit.
Tammy’s been wearing glasses since the 5th grade – the same time that she got braces. Looks like she’s made the most out of both!
It takes a brave man to pull off these bold glasses, but somehow, Crew Magazine art director Kyriakos Alexopoulos makes it look easy. The green stripe on these YSL aviators are a nice detail, but it’s Kyriakos’ other accessory, Ozzy, that really makes this photo one of our faves.
