San Francisco's cityscape is maybe one of the world's most iconic thanks to the Golden Gate Bridge, the Transamerica Pyramid, and the fact that 6th St is completely obscured by buildings. Iconifying your stunners with SF's epic shopping cart-less building spread, Skyline Sunnies, now available.
From a Potrero Hill dude and his Taiwan-living buddy with serious connections when it comes to production (and knockoff Prada handbags for cheap, cheap, cheap!!!), SS is a just-launched shades-ufacturer paying homage to the SF skyline by slapping it across the mirrored lenses of your shades.
The Wayfarer-esque Sunnies all sport UV protection and use an embarrassingly simple "advanced pyrotechmatical cohesion technology" to achieve the subtle cityscape effect along with silver- or gold-mirrored coatings applied to the sky, ensuring Chicago's WNBA franchise will be shinier, but, sadly, still unwatchable.
They're available in 16 different colorways including two SF sports team-referencers -- Cuarenta y Nueve and Gigante Gold -- and the less Spanish-y, more overtly named Brownie (which is brown), Pinky (Give up? Nope, it's pink!), and The Wiz, which is
a magically musical pair of sunglasses that channels The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in the context of African American culture black and yellow.
And because other cities allegedly have cool skylines too, they'll launch shades for NY next, Chicago after that, then, just before the Olympic Games, London, a cityscape that's similarly iconic for its breathtaking, history-rich landmarks like that, um, egg-shaped building, and, better still, the giant Ferris wheel thingy.
