Wearing glasses can be a pain but you’d never switch to contacts because the thought of touching your eyeball is too much. Do how do you overcome the 10-minute shift? That is, your eyeglasses falling down your nose and shifting every few minutes. A new product might just hold the centuries-long (I’m sure) answer.
This pair of eyeglasses launched by Blinc Vase in Japan is perfect for bespectacled smoochers who need to retain their eyesight when rubbing each other’s faces raw. Although the promo video is rather cute, I’m not betting it will be a best seller anytime soon. Each pair is sold for an eye-popping 68,000 yen (US$620), […]
Er, protect your eyes by covering them with your hands? That seems to be the idea behind these weird oversized acetate frames by Linda Farrow in collaboration with Jeremy Scott. These are literally shaped like curved fingers with openings for your eyes to peek out of. Absolutely banal and useless, but so, so fun.
Spy Optics, a Californian firm specializing in eyewear, has claimed their sunglasses will make you mighty happy.

Glasses with Moustaches are the first cab off the rank in the range and we were lucky enough to have Swaggers launch unofficially at the Lost At E Minor party.
