SPECIAL SPECS: French eyewear designer Thierry Lasry has teamed up with Kelly Wearstler for a limited-edition collection of “Anorexxxy” sunglasses debuting in Colette Paris, Kelly Wearstler and Bergdorf Goodman on Nov. 6. The two bonded over a shared love of marble, a material Wearstler uses in her interiors and accessories that evokes Lasry’s Eighties-inspired style. The glasses, retailing for $555, feature acetate frames with gold and marble temples and the packaging features the stone with Wearstler’s signature perforated gold. “I am a huge fan of Thierry’s glasses; I have been wearing them for years. I think I own a pair forevery day of the week,” said Wearstler. Said Lasry, “We have developed a lot of colored acetates in the last few years that were directly inspired by marble patterns, but have never had the right design to pair with a truemarble accent. When I connected with Kelly, it was the perfect synergy. I have done several collaborations like Acne a few years ago or Miroslava Duma more recently but collaborating with Kelly was somehow more artistic and I feel like we really came out with a piece of art.”
