SAUNDERS’ SPECS: Jonathan Saunders has inked a five-year deal with the Australian manufacturer Sunshades Eyewear to produce a line of sunglasses. “This is important in terms of increasing our product lines and reaching an aspirational customer,” the designer told WWD, adding the sunglasses would have global distribution. He described the initial encounter with Sunshades as a “meeting of minds” and praised the company’s “innovative approach” to materials and the quality of its product. The 29-piece collection will land in stores in February and will incorporate Saunders’ love of color and print. The rounded “Max” frames, an aviator-inspired style, appeared on his spring 2015 catwalk in London. One version has black metal frames and blue lenses, while another has retro gold frames and dark amber lenses. Prices start at $310.
