STarS IN ThEIr EyES, hEarTS IN ThEIr gLaSSES
Berlin-based eyewear specialists Lunettes Kollektion and London’s Cooperative Designs knitwear innovators hold a shared vision for handcrafted quality and timeless individuality. So it’s only natural that the two have joined forces to create a distinctive debut – a limited-edition summer eyewear collection that makes one long for a holiday in the sun.
The five-piece sunglass range starts with two of Lunettes Kollektion’s carefully crafted frames and adds inspiration from Cooperative Designs Spring/Summer 2012 collection, “Wish you were here.” Unique cut-outs transform the tinted lenses but don’t impact vision – so wearers can both look good and see well. Fare Bella Figura – Love is an Italian-influenced charmer, a gently rounded but solid frame, holding heart-shaped lenses – sweet but not sappy. Colors are Ash with grey lenses, Miele (honey) with blue, and Crystal with red. Stellar counterpart George – Starry eyed adds a bit of edge with its angular 80’s style and moon-and-star shapes
– available in Smoky Ash with grey lenses and Miele (honey) with blue lenses.
To keep the sunnies from straying while adding a finishing touch, Cooperative Designs also created custom crochet glasses cords using yards from the SS 2012 collection – choices include tri-tone blues, ruffly roses and steely hearts. The collaboration sunglasses also come with a cleaning cloth printed with one of Cooperative Designs’ original artworks that appears as a graphic print in their fashion collection.
All Lunettes Kollektion eyeglasses are handcrafted by a small, traditional manufacturer in Italy using the highest quality Cellulose Acetate, a natural raw material. The lenses for this collaboration were produced in Italy using a special technique. Cooperative Designs garments are produced in small factories using a combination of high-tech and traditional approaches; the cords for this collection are hand-crocheted.
Lunettes Kollektion’s Uta Geyer translates iconic frames from fashion history to create classics with a twist – retro re-envisioned. Her designs and vintage eyewear shops in Berlin are on the must-see lists of discerning sorts from Architectural Digest to the Louis Vuitton Guide.
Cooperative Designs duo Annalisa Dunn and Dorothee Hagemann are known for their knits with wit. They have collaborated with Hussein Chalayan and created capsule collections for Stefanel and Henri Bendel.
