Google Glass Titanium Eyewear Collection

Google Glass is one of the most ambitious concept-to-reality projects we’ve seen in quite some time but the glasses were far from stylish. The brand is looking to tackle this task next as they unveil the Google Glass Titanium Eyewear Collection. There are four new frame shapes, and all of them will work with prescription lenses. To ensure they were offering something that style-conscious consumers would wear, Google teamed up with Maui Jim for the three sunglass options. All of the new styles utilize second generation Google Glass hardware, which means they are all equipped with the mono earbud.

Reassemble Glasses.


These incredible shades work wonders for privacy.  Especially overly curious girlfriends, or snoopin brothers and sisters in your house.  The trick itself is in the screen, which appears blank until you see them from behind the Reassemble Glasses.  Just don’t think it’s odd if people see you staring at a blank screen.

The Mayfourteeth Look Book.


Introducing the Spring/Summer 2012 Mayfourteenth Eyewear collection. The 2012 frames were inspired by the tranquility of island life and wanderlust, and draw from elements resemblant to the striking patterns and colors of the beaches and jungles of coastal South America.


The new campaign was photographed by Dustin Aksland at his Manhattan studio and inspired by Ishla Grande and the coastal bungalows of Angra Dos Reis, Brazil.

The new collection uses a contrasting color palette of chocolate browns and carmel yellows inspired by the delicious torte and dulce de leche from the Villa do Abrao desert carts, mixed with moody blues and crystals reminiscent of the sun beaming off of the islands clear waters. Subtle tortoise and jaguar markings continue the theme of deviated patterns from nature.

Continuing with the theme of contemporary classic, Mayfourteenth’s delivery focuses both on texture and form. Thicker, bigger, and bolder frames all wearable from summer through autumn.  Mayfourteenth Eyewear is handmade using vintage Mazzucchelli acetate and fitted with optical quality CR-39 lens.  Made with careful hands and designed with sophisticated style.

Something To Rock With A Tweed Blazer.


These RGB glasses just may be the next hated trend. It’s completely hollow to be filled with ink. One day you’ll be channeling The Great Gatsby with dark, thick, black frames, the next you’ll have bright red to show those hipsters how it’s really done.

Ksubi Cisco Silver and Black Leather Shades.


This classic aviator shape is given a modern militaristic feel through several well structured details, blending steal, leather, and acetate into a single standout frame. The Cisco has side shields with luxury leather detailing to help keep out the sun or wind, luxury leather detailing at the bridge, and grated metal detailing at the temples. While this may seem quite complex, it is actually quite simple on the face, the mark of great execution. It presents just the right balance of hard versus soft elements and simplicity in the overall shape, to create a technical but very wearable frame which works well on most faces.

Dolce & Gabbana Gold Edition 2012 Sunglasses.


For SS12 Dolce&Gabbana launch a very special and precious limited edition sunglass collection to satisfy your most luxurious eyewear needs.  The Gold Edition for SS12 is declined in the male and female versions. For women, the Dolce&Gabbana Gold Edition comes in two styles: Pure Gold and Gold Sofia.  The Pure Gold sunglasses are a vintage yet streamlined shape. The square frame is inspired by a gold ingot and provides a statement unparalleled by other sunglasses. The frame is gilded in 18K gold and is available in both white and yellow gold.  The Gold Sofia version has a lighter frame and is thoroughly inspired by vintage Fifties designs. The Sofia gold style is also available in both yellow and white gold.  The Special Edition aviators for men have been designed with a fold at the front where they can be folded to a 45-degree angle for practicality.  They can be worn on the belt or attached to a braided leather cold (which comes with the sunglasses) and worn round the neck.

Craven vs. L’Amy – Retro Flip Shades.


Collaborating with eyewear brand L’Amy, French luxury house Carven is launching an eyewear line with a collection of round frame flip-up sunglasses. The Anastasie model comes in a variety of playful colors and brow bar shapes.  Carven’s Anastasie glasses feature round lenses with gold metal rims, with clip-on solar lenses that can be flipped down.  As for the colors, fashionistas will be able to choose from a selection of summery neon tones like yellow, green, pink and red. The glasses are priced at €290 ($360).

Stix – The 3D Glasses Revolution.


Viewing 3D cinema is a truly gripping experience but for the 3D glasses.  Besides being heavy and awkward for those already wearing numbered glasses, they are a material waste and pose a health hazard.  Stix offers an easy solution by being a pair of self-adhesive sticker 3D viewing films.  Simply slap them onto your current numbered glasses and enjoy your 3D movie.

The stickers are cut out a shape bigger than average glasses to ensure they cover till the rim.  The concept’s approach resonates with me, since I wear glasses too and find wearing additional glasses a hassle.  Hopefully the sticker in Stix will be easy to peel off and then we are assured of a winner here.

The Google X Augmented Reality Glasses.


The existence of Google X was first disclosed late last year and reports that the researchers there were exploring augmented reality surfaced in February.  This is the first time Google has officially acknowledged this particular project.  Writing for the New York Times, Nick Bilton notes that Babak Parviz is known for creating contact lenses embedded with electronics, which suggests that Google’s augmented reality might be available in a form factor smaller than sunglasses at some point.

Google has posted a video on YouTube that explores how the glasses might work. The scenes shown are not actual production footage of the glasses in the field. They’re augmented with post-production graphics that show how Project Glass might work. But the video conveys what Google hopes to achieve: a seamless experience where the technology enhances activities and doesn’t interfere with them.  The future you’ve seen in movies over the last decade is starting to get closer.

Calls in 3D?


3D is seems to be the new fad in cellphones, but price point and compatibility issues make them less desirable at the moment. Catering to this genre is the Cobble 3-D concept; it features a 4-inch 3D 16:9 HD screen giving the device more depth sans the awkward 3D glasses. The adaptive camera tracker follows your finger and anticipates your move on the screen, making the touchscreen experience smooth as silk.  The Cobble takes stunning pictures thanks to the motion scroll, which adjusts the zoom and takes realistic snaps. The multiple color-back options are sick as well.

The Ultimate Television Experience.


If you died and went to 3-D TV heaven then I’m sure you would find the Samsung MSTV sitting right in front, in it’s various screen-size (22,32,42,46,55, 64 inches) avatars. Keeping with Sammy’s passion for Android, this TV is a pureblood Google Android baby. And what’s more, you get to sync all your gadgets and devices remotely and splurge on gaming fun.  Check the rest of the post for details.

Karl Lagerfeld Glasses?


Karl Lagerfeld has collaborated with Orrefors, the Swedish glass makers to create a collection of crystal including bowls, vases; wine, water and liqueur glasses and, naturally, champagne flutes.  The Orrefors brand is known for gracing the tables at the Swedish Royal Palace.

The glasses are hand-blown and Lagerfeld’s line will come in black, milky white and clear crystal, some engraved with the designer’s initials.  The series also includes monogrammed coasters “to prevent any trace of an errant drop on an immaculate tablecloth,” the makers say.  The Orrefors by Karl Lagerfeld collection will be available from September 1 in Harrods, and Bloomingdales in the US from October 1.

Brilliant Minimalsitic Print Ads.


Chaplin vs Hitler

Leonardo da Vinci once said: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”, and architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe adopted the motto “Less is more” to describe his extreme simplicity, by enlisting every element and detail to serve multiple visual and functional purposes (such as designing a floor to also serve as the radiator, or a massive fireplace to also house the bathroom).

Even after 500 years Leonardo’s words are true and this rule is still widely used in design and advertising. It may sound  a bit contradictory, but simple things often require much more brain power to create than the most complicated stuff. And it always strikes you when something completely simple is capable of conveying so much more than you expect.

Gucci ‘S.E.’ Heritage Glasses


The House of Gucci has come out with a new collection of “heritage” aviator sunglasses.  The three new models (unisex 1627/S, men’s 1622/S, and women’s 3108/S) all feature the red and green Gucci stripe and “G” logo on both temples.  The sunglasses come with a special edition leather case and carrying pouch and the case has a wide signature stripe while the pouch has a matching strap.
