Louis Vuitton Best Sunglasses Summer 2012 - Hortensia

It's rare that I like the more simple frames from Louis Vuitton but the Hortensia is an eye-catching pair.  Available for a few months now at select LV stores.

This frame is simple in shape but it has great details.  The gold edging on the four corners of the frame and tips is excellent.  You can see this frame in a lot of their promotional material as it works on pretty much anyone.  My favorite of the summer collection.

You can pick this up for $615.00 at the official Louis Vuitton website

Gucci Sunglasses 2011 Spring Summer - Runway Sunglasses

Gucci sunglasses, like those of many other big brands, are hit or miss.  Generally they go the safe route and save the more original frames for the runway.  Today we'll look at a few styles only seen on the runway and a few of the more common frames they have out for Spring/Summer 2011.

 Gucci Runway Sunglasses 2011

This is the first frame that caught my eye on from their photo section for 2011, however you won't find it in the list of available frames.  It's a shame, because it is one of the nicer frames they have now.  This begs the question, why display this frame when it's not for sale?  I know they want to generate interest for the season with some sharp frames.
Gucci Sunglasses 2011 Spring Summer GG 1636/S
Gucci Sunglasses 2011 Spring Summer GG 3160/S

These two frames are not bad looking but have a lot of G's all over them.  Though not terribly looking, I could do without the crazy branding.  GG 3160/S above is a sweet-looking cat eye shape, but I prefer minimal frames with this kind of style.

So why do so many brands show stuff at the show that you'll never be able to buy?

Another lost frame.

Lady Gaga x Polaroid Sunglasses Colab - Technology and Fashion Freakout

So Lady Gaga was all over the airwaves yesterday being the surprise guest of Polaroid at CES in Las Vegas.  The Consumer Electronics Show often sees its share of celebrities, but this was unexpected.  Thankfully the focus was not on her meat dress this time.  The awkward product presentation ended up leading to the release of the Polarez GL20's.

These sunglasses use an OLED display to project anything you would like (i.e. a video or pictures from an SD card) onto a small display in front of your eyes.  Not safe for walking downtown, but maybe fun if you are on a flight

Mykita Sunglasses x Uslu Airlines Nail Polish

In one of the most interesting collaborations I've seen in awhile, Mykita has mixed with Uslu luxury cosmetics to make an interesting package. Your fantastic looking Mykita glasses now come with a bottle of matching-color nail polish.

So if you've ever needed to match something in your wardrobe, now you can do it with your sunglasses and nails. An original idea.  Too bad I don't wear nail polish (yet).

Louis Vuitton 2011 Sports Sunglasses?! Louis Vuitton 4Motion Sunglasses!

Louis Vuitton is known for luxury and the representation of wealth everywhere.  Their bags can be seen everywhere in the world and are coveted like mad in Asia.  People will wear rags just to be carrying a LV bag.  Sunglasses are not so much their forte.  They have had big hits with pairs like "Millionaire" and "Evidence" but there have been more misses than hits.  The new 4Motion sunglasses would be a miss for me.

Louis Vuitton 4Motion Earth

4Motion has four styles - Air, Water, Fire and Earth.  This feels like a real stretch to me.  Louis Vuitton sports sunglasses just doesn't have that LV ring to it.

Of course nobody is going to be wearing these to actually play sports.  As they range in price from $640 - $720, I don't think anyone is going to be wearing them at all.
