A few months back I posted about Linda Farrow, a brand founded in the 70s by Linda Farrow, was resurrected by Linda’s son in 2003 when he found a stash of his mother’s deadstock vintage frames. The brand has an impressive account list, press and celebrity following and they are adding to their pedigree by teaming up with some of the world’s leading fashion designers to create really unique, whimsical eyewear. At Project, we got up close and personal with frames designed by the likes of Luella, Jeremy Scott, Matthew Williamson and Yohji Yamamoto. The frames are of exceptional quality and you can see each designer’s personality come through in each capsule collection. Luella’s frames have a bit of a retro edge with cateye shapes that are girly and fun. Jeremey Scott surprises us with large over size frames and another pair that comes complete with attached visor! Matthew Williamson’s frames evoke 1970’s glamazons – I could see Farah Fawcett wearing these styles in Charlie’s Angels. Finally, Yohji Yamamoto’s frames under the prototype* label were simple but the metal work details don’t make these your average frames. All of the frames pictured will be hitting retail shelves in March and April. Read the full story to see photos of frames by all the designers mentioned above.
