Love At First Sight: Christian Roth Monogram Sunglasses
What: Christian Roth’s limited-edition monogrammed sunglasses—the ever popular vintage “Series A” style revamped with five different titanium bar colors, including a glitzy pair studded with .35-carat diamonds.
Why: Because the sunglass designers’ 25th anniversary dovetails perfectly with the recent eighties resurgence. But they’ve updated the remake of the popular style with new tech-y materials. And while the personal monogram says “Me Decade,” it’s discreetly engraved inside the frame for a more Oughts-appropriate sensibility. Hurry! There are only 250 pairs sans diamonds and 25 with.
Where: Titanium without monogram, $340; with monogram, $500. Diamond without monogram, $2,000; with monogram, $2,500. Available by special order at www.christian-roth.com or Bergdorf Goodman, NYC, (212) 753-7300.
