It’s not just about clothes. Three new sunglasses lines are hitting the runways.
Jason Wu is finally launching accessories — sunglasses, which he will unveil at his show today. The idea was a new take on traditional shapes, says Wu, who partnered with Modo Eyewear. And that mind-set conveniently carries over to his spring clothes, which include luxe sweatshirts and a silk tweed hoodie. The sunglasses feature updated versions of, for example, the classic cateye. “I turned down the curve of the cateye a bit and added a quirky element in metal details that look like a cat’s brow,” he notes. The four-style collection, with names taken from bygone muses such as Seberg (the cateye), Mia (oversize), Earhart (aviator) and Jett (retro Eighties), is priced from $250 to $350 at retail. They come in a plastic matte finish and hues such as aquamarine, topaz, caramel and opal.
