Rag & Bone Expands Into Eyewear

-------

The universe only offers up so many opportunities for an Al Yankovich-style retrofit of a novelty hit from the eighties. So, apologies in advance, but here goes: The future’s so bright for Rag & Bone, they gotta make shades. In other words, R & B design duo Marcus Wainwright and David Neville have crossed the eyewear Rubicon, and their new frames will debut on the Rag & Bone Spring ’10 runway tomorrow. Riffing on classic silhouettes such as the Wayfarer and the Aviator, the sunglasses come in three types of tortoiseshell and boast the usual Rag & Bone quality enhancements: For example, every pair is hand-cut from sheet acetate, hand-polished, and features double-reinforced hinges. (Neville and Wainwright got some technical direction from Morgenthal Frederics’ Jeff Press, a person whose judgment we’re just going to trust on eyewear manufacture details too wonky to enumerate here.) Keep a close eye on the catwalk for the signature screw embellishment on the frames, and if you’re keen to get Timbuk 3′s chords out of your head, trying humming “I Want Your Specs.”
