Prism Break


In April, Prism eyewear designer Anna Laub added swimwear to her repertoire. After a summer of living in her bathing suit, the self-confessed beach girl’s cool, relaxed vibe has carried over to her upcoming Spring 2012 collection. “It’s minimal, laid-back, and sexy, with some punchy attitude,” says Laub of the new line. Credit for that punch goes to Uschi Obermaier, the 1970′s German model who had a fling with Keith Richards. “I found lots of great images from the seventies of Uschi Obermaier that had this mood.” Of the colors—burgundy, antique gold, and burnt orange, Laub explains, “I was inspired by Guy Bourdin and the sketches of Egon Schiele.” We expect the dark green one-piece will fly off the shelves at Opening Ceremony. On that note: Laub has created limited-edition Prism espadrilles for the shop’s FNO fiesta. As for her nerdy-chic eyewear, expect to see her trendsetting clients, Alexa Chung included, sporting the zebra-horn Antwerp frame sometime soon.
