In his dramatic spring runway show finale, John Galliano adorned each model in a style from his new line of sunglasses, dubbed the Icon Collection. Key styles include the “Les Biches” dark wrap shade, with temples inspired by the honeycomb hair fans worn by flamenco dancers, and “Beau Regard,” with stylistic nods to Hollywood heroes like the Rat Pack. Licensed to Marcolin and due for release in January, house codes at play include Galliano’s signature Gazette print. Comprising 11 women’s and seven men’s styles, retail prices range from around $370 to $515.
