Barton Perreira Emmanuelle Sahara Snake Small
The first new pair is called Harlequin. It is quite different from any other models in the line. The design on the temples is very intricate and is hand-painted. It retails for about $515 U.S.
Genevieve is the simpler of these three models, but has nice detailing where the temples meet the frame in the shape of a metallic bow. The lens shape is also more laidback and subtle, and matches the lines of the frame very smoothly. Low key luxury.
I’ve been waiting to see new designs from Barton Perreira and I must say that I am quite impressed. All of the models this year were designed by Patty Perreira and she has again raised the bar. I was basically hoping for something along these lines, especially with the way they are colored, allowing light to change how the sunglasses look.
If you’ve got the bankroll and want to stand out, you simply can’t go wrong with Barton Perreira. They are available at only the classiest retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Barneys, Fred Segal and Bergdorf Goodman. There are many more styles for 2009, just check the website or updates here.
