Looking for an accessory that's patriotic and somehow not totally cheesy to round out your 4th of July weekend wardrobe? (Because let's face it, the celebrations won't end on Thursday.)
We're pretty smitten with the Independence Day shades from downtown cool eyewear brand Illesteva, co-designed by Daniel Silberman and Jus Ske. "The stripes are an important part of Illesteva's Summer Collection and we always wanted to do a pair for July 4th," Silberman said of the shades. When we asked the boys how they celebrate the fourth Sky replied "Fireworks baby!!!" so, you know, these guys are excited about the 4th.
The collection features a blue and white striped pair of Leonard II frames, and a matching red and white pair. And yes, these sunnies are patriotic, but classic, too, so you'll be able to wear them aaaalll summer long.
The shades are priced at $260 and available at illesteva.com.
