Thanks to today's rampant celebrity-obsessed culture, we've witnessed famous people doing every imaginable thing, from having sex, to taking out their trash, to being Gary Busey. Now see what they look like in a pair of finger shades, with Hype Means Nothing.
Making their exclusive US debut right here in the Hub for some reason, this French clothing label offers up an extensive tongue-in-cheek line of graphic tees that deftly portray pop culture icons (music, sports, cartoons, etc) using their hands to approximate baller shades, which, in the case of Joey Galloway, is probably the safest use of his hands. From the music biz, there's a bleach blond Lady Gaga decked out in leather gloves and sporting Linda Farrow Mickey Mouse shades; Notorious B.I.G peering out of a pair of faux Louis Vuitton Evidences; and Jay-Z going classic in a pair of Ray Ban Aviators -- because he may have 99 problems, but sun glare ain't one. From the cartoon/toy collection, there's a black fleece sweatshirt featuring Mister Jack from The Nightmare Before Christmas; SpongeBob SquarePants mid-leap rocking a pair of Louis Vuitton Millionaires; and a suit-wearing Mr. Lego donning a pair of Miami Vice-esque Wayfarers, but not Donning them, because Mr. Johnson is a prince and has a killer lawyer.
If you still can't get enough, HMN offers other choice highlights like David Beckham, Michael Jordan, and Barack Obama to go along with a soon-to-be-released Wayfarer-sporting Muhammad Ali and MacBook/iPhone cases covered in a collage of all their photos -- a project that has undoubtedly kept them very, very Busey.
