Designer extraordinaire Kelly Wearstler has teamed up with French sunglass guru Thierry Lasry on a Parisian line of shades that are coming to the states! This special version of Lasry’s classic style “Anorexxxy” features touches of Wearstler’s refined-yet-glam style. “The collaboration was very artistic,” Wearstler told InStyle of the partnership. “The energy and creative excitement that we both shared about this project made it fun,” Lasry said.
The Thierry Lasry x Kelly Wearstler collaboration is a mash-up of the key elements from Kelly’s world, which can be seen in the side detailing, and Thierry’s aesthetic, which is influenced by 80’s style. “The collaboration is inspired by our shared love of rich color and appreciation for marble,” Wearstler said. “The glasses have a raw coolness with an elegant and refined vibe.”
Available in four colors — cristal, black, blue, and bordeau — they feature gold metal and marble arms with black acetate tips. Even the packaging was well thought out by the pair. “We developed a case and soft bag inspired by Kelly’s book, Rhapsody. The perforated gold box combined with a marble stone gives the entire package a lot of dimension,” Lasry said to InStyle.
Meanwhile, what’s the perfect outfit to wear with our new shades? “There is nothing more classically Californian-cool than an iconic pair of sunglasses, a tee and the perfect pair of jeans,” Wearstler told InStyle. “Sunglasses are the easiest way to update a look.” Pick up a pair for $555 starting November 8th at the Kelly Wearstler flagship store or on bergdorfgoodman.com November 11th.
