Every fashion connoisseur knows all too well of the ever-cyclical nature of fashion; what’s old is bound to be new again. Take the latest crop of designer sunglasses on couture.zappos.com for instance, many of the latest eyewear designs give a nod to the cat-eye glasses of the ‘50s and oversized gradient sunglasses of the ‘60s and ‘70s. These latest iterations of retro eyewear may have a knack for nostalgia, but they’re definitely done with a totally modern, fresh-off-the-runway twist.

Linda Farrow Projects is a collection of collaborations with emerging and talented designers and stylish celebrities. From designs with House of Holland to Jeremy Scott, each Linda Farrow Projects piece is truly a work of art.
Matthew Williamson- making his debut into the fashion scene at London Fashion Week back in 1997, this luxury fashion house is known for its signature aesthetic and unmistakably exotic flair.
Agent Provocateur- the seductively posh and edgy brainchild of Vivienne Westwood’s son, Joseph Corre, and music legend Malcolm McLaren, Agent Provocateur started out in 1994 as a line of sexy, boudoir-inspired lingerie. The same “naughty-but-nice” allure goes into the conception of the Agent Provocateur sunglasses line.
