Changing components can make all the difference -- making wood drivers from carbon fiber allows for increased shaft flex and head speed, while making condoms from latex...allows you to conveniently claim you're allergic to latex. For shades from a company that saw the light, check out KBL Eyewear's spring/summer drop.
Taking things in a totally different direction from their metal frame-heavy inaugural collection, the married design duo behind KBL's back in action with a grip of bulkier, all-acetate sunnies inspired by vintage shades the husband half of the equation stumbled upon during a recent trip to Italy, a country whose fashion sense is no Bologna. Made from super high-qual Mazzucchelli acetate (in universal colorways like black, brown, and light blue, plus flashier steezes including crystal turquoise, semi-transparent "honey", and vintage tortoise), new styles range from the BluBlocker-esque Whiskey Bandit, to the curved wraparound Russian Gold, to the Aviator-channeling West Side Bernie, to the slightly angular, Wayfarer-ish Wild Promises, which keep saying they'll settle down soon as that surefire investment pays off, but seriously, why do you keep kidding yourself? Each pair's also available in a variety of lens colors, from solid options like rose and grey, to fading gradients in purple, brown, and blue; a select few models even have the option of special NXT lenses, which are lightweight and shatter resistant, aka the anti-Piggy.
Of course they've still retained signature ultra-luxe details like stretch-inhibiting stop-hinge tech, gunmetal detailing, and plastic covered screws, though c'mon, don't your shades trust you?
