Balmain x Oliver Peoples Sunglasses

What y’all know about these?!? Balmain has been making some noise for a minute now in the fashion world. Their new men’s collection looks promising – and with one look at these frames we can see why! The fashion house recently hooked up with eyewear giant Oliver Peoples to bring us the Balmain I & II.

Here’s a recent write-up –

“Consistent with the 2010 Balmain collections, the bold, unisex styles reflect sleek, contemporary design elements and feature exaggerated teardrop lenses in a comfortable, face-fitting wrap. The Balmain I is a rock-n-roll-inspired, mixed-media style crafted with a smooth metal top bar fastened by four screws against the acetate-enclosed lenses to provide the illusion of a frame front. The temples include a flexible hinge that allows for greater bendable movement. This version will be available in solid black and a black/silver combination. The Balmain II is an inventive interpretation of the classic double-bridge aviator. The pronounced, slightly thicker top bar creates a more distinctive look, while retaining the signature styling. Available in gold or silver, this version is available in two sizes and flatters most faces.”

A worldwide release is slated for April/May 2010. Aaaaooowww!!!
