If you’ve been keeping up with NOLAFW, you probably noticed something in common in some of this season’s presentations… the inclusion of sunglasses. And not just any sunglasses – the same styles from the New Orleans brand KREWE du optic were seen on models in presentations like Hazel & Florange and Pret a Porter. So what’s the big deal? The deal is that the three classic styles are popping up everywhere and on the faces of influential bloggers across the internet.
The Saturday morning of the Shop Your City Day, KREWE du optic hosted all of the guest bloggers participating in the event with a brunch and sunglasses session. We tried on the current styles as well as the new styles coming out in November (so, so good). The first collection includes the Calliope, The Fly and Toulouse. Literally, at least one of these styles will look flattering on your face. Somehow, Stirling, owner and creative behind the brand, has developed a first collection that is just extremely universal.
I can’t even talk about the November samples that I tried on. Stirling and I sat and talked on the balcony while I wore one pair, and I think he thought I was going to try to leave with them. Okay, I probably would have tried, but he called me out before I had the chance… No, Stirling wouldn’t let me take his sample, but I did get to leave with a pair from the current collection. So be looking for more sunny goodness from KREWE du Optic coming up in this week’s outfit post. 🙂
