Grace Lee has collaborated with Steven Alan on an optical collection — the fine jeweler’s first foray into eyewear. The two-piece collaboration, which will be known as Steven Alan x Grace Lee, hits retail in November and includes two sunglass styles featuring lace metalwork inspired by Lee’s “Lace Crown” ring.
“I started to think what would make sunglasses ‘Grace Lee’ and jewelrylike,” Lee said of the design process. “You think, ‘Oh, put diamonds on it,’ but I didn’t want to go that route. [Instead,] we took the lace-ring pattern and made it into a collage.”
