Making sunglasses for action heroes is a niche market, but someone’s got to fill it. Enter Blinde Eyewear, the label that has designed shades for everyone from Angelina Jolie in <i>Lara Croft: Tomb Raider</i> to Keanu Reeves and his posse in <i>The Matrix</i> — not to mention the many off-duty superheroes lurking about Hollywood. Blinde Eyewear’s collection isn’t solely reserved for big-screen brawny types, however: modern-retro styles like the In Cahoots and the Bagel are super-stylish yet accessible, while many frames feature streamlined, subtle shapes. Founded by Richard Walker and Troy Schmidt, Blinde makes its glasses and sunglasses by hand; features such as beta-titanium core wire and seven-barrel, six-pin stainless steel hinges give each pair superior flexibility and durability. You might not be an action hero (yet), but that doesn't mean you shouldn't see the world through an action hero's specs.
There’s more to Blinde Sunglasses than the “Matrix” model that Keanu Reeves made famous, but each one of its sleek models deserves to be called the Chosen One. This sale offers a number of them, running the gamut from hip aviators to ornamented tortoiseshells. Packed with all the technical details that any shadehead covets — beta-titanium core wire, tumble-polished zyl frames — these glasses will instantly turn you into honorary Hollywood royalty.
A favorite among Hollywood and fashion insiders, Blinde Eyewear’s collection offers myriad of-the-moment styles—both sunglasses and prescription-ready frames are in the mix. In our sale: 70 pairs of glasses that run the gamut from nerd-chic to downtown cool-kid. The vintage-feeling Road to Ruins and Lights Out sunglasses in tortoiseshell and black, respectively, are two of our favorites.
With spring right around the corner and summer soon after that, the sun’s sure to be shining in short order — and in full force. And would you look at that? We've pulled together a massive selection of smart shades with style to spare in this sale from Linda Farrow, Mosley Tribes, and more. Lucky you.
Now that summer's arrived — unofficially, anyway — it's the perfect time to invest in a pair of great sunglasses. Luckily for you we’ve compiled this collection of stylish shades by Paul Smith, Randolph Engineering, Linda Farrow, and a host of others. Stock up, and get ready for the season ahead.
