We will forgive these three for wearing sunglasses inside, just this once. Last night, at the Sunglass Hut Flagship store on Fifth Avenue, we watched Jessica Szohr, Alexis Bledel, and Emmy Rossum try on some pretty cute shades in celebration of the new Vogue Eyewear/CFDA Capsule Collection. We thought this was a pretty random choice of celeb guests and were wondering where Rachel Bilson was, until we realized each pair of sunglasses was pretty well-suited to these three girls. By the way, Alexis Bledel is GORGEOUS in person.
CFDA members Devi Kroell, Matt Murphy and Kara Ross were each selected to design a pair of sunglasses for a special capsule collection to be sold under the Vogue Eyewear brand.
Each designer’s goal was to translate his or her signature look into a pair of sunglasses. We think each of them did a great job of designing a frame that reflected their aesthetic. We also feel that these designers were well chosen because we can see each pair appealing to a different girl. However, each pair of sunglasses has "VOGUE" emblazoned on both sides (with the designer's name on the inside), which we think looks a little tacky. The collection retails for a pretty reasonable $129.95 per style and is available now at the Sunglass Hut Flagship store in New York and in Sunglass Hut stores in Macy's. See below for pics of the collection plus a little behind the scenes video.
