As I have discussed for this very website, I am most often inspired to purchase something after seeing it on a celebrity. Recently, I have seen both Bella and Gigi Hadid wearing sunglasses from buzzy designer Adam Selman’s collaboration with Le Specs, and — it goes without saying — I must have them.
While edgier Hadid Bella went for the fun red shades, I’m hunting after the black pair, which I think will go nicely with the spring #aesthetic. They have a retro shape with a modern twist that helps keep them from feeling like part of a sock hop costume. The only problem? They appear to be sold out just about everywhere.
That doesn’t mean I’m giving up easily. I’ve spent a solid chunk of each day trying to hunt these babies down. The cherry red pair with silver lenses are available again on Le Specs’s website; it appears they’re currently available in black at U.K. site Very Exclusive, so act fast.
Adam Selman x Le Specs “The Last Lolita” sunglasses, £75, available at Very Exclusive.
