Für alle, denen ihr normaler Streewear Style zu langweilig geworden ist, hat Louisianas Streetwear Shop Sneaker Politics zusammen mit Oakley zwei Paar freakige Frogskins entworfen. Der Erste der beiden Styles hat ein weißes Gestell mit Iridium Gläsern in coolem Lila. Ein „Double Cup“ Stempel befindet sich auf dem linken Glas und ist die Kennzeichnung für das beliebte amerikanische Getränk. Die zweite Frogskin Version besteht aus einem braunen Gestell mit moosgrünen Gläsern, die an die Sümpfe und das Marschland der Küste Louisianas erinnern sollen. Ab sofort gibt es die freakigen Teile im Handel. Lasst euch von den Bildern nach dem Jump überzeugen. Wer schon eine Brille hat, aber Streetwear und Sneaker sucht, der wird im Numelo.com Online Shop sicher fündig.
For their spring collection, Nooka has experimented with the process of cross-breeding. After much analysis, they have chosen their best selling colors in hopes of creating their first hybrid Zub and Mercury line. The new collection features a combination of both parent colors to produce unexpected results.
In addition to the new spring colors, Nooka has released a new version of the Nooka AO, which is significantly wider than its predecessor. The enlarged dimensions allow the user to store cash via one simple fold, while still making it pocket friendly. The new piece also features a more sophisticated closure that no longer uses a strap. The new containers will feature a hood that tucks into part of the wallet for more security and durability. The new AO also comes with a removable insert, thus providing even more storage space. The 6 new colors allow the user to mix and match colors to create a fashionable, futuristic accessory. All of the spring collection is available for purchase at www.nooka.com.
Some seasons ago, Jeremy Scott and Linda Farrow had already signed a very successful collaboration, which had met a big success. Thanks to this success, they repeat the experience this spring/summer with a series of original and visionary sunglasses, including some models with the famous Jeremy Scott wings as well as some very interesting looking hands. You can see pics of all creations after the jump.
Parisian Designer Dzmitry Samal has launched a collection of design-oriented eyewear that is a mix of retro and futuristic elements. There are currently two models in the collection: 5DPI (above) and 6DPI (below), and four will be launched next year. These retro-futuristic glasses have been designed to look pixelated. Samal explains that this “deliberately reflects society’s fascination with an ‘informational aesthetic’.” Taking inspiration from 1980s video games such as Tetris, the glasses are a nod to the current society’s digital roots and how “something as utilitarian as glasses can be transformed using technology.” The glasses are made of acetate and available in a variety of colors.
The additional four models that will be in production next year include: Leonard
Extravagant silhouette with structural graphic, it has an idea of overlapping two irregular shapes. To be realized in transparent acetate. 06
Fashionable and futuristic, yet retro design. It is combination of two geometric shapes — circle and hexagon with stylized bar to hold the arms. To be realized in acetate. Structural
These have an aggressive and futuristic design inspired by technical constructions and architecture, such as the Beijing Olympic stadium and Eiffel tower. To be realized in titanium. Facet
Very modern shape with faceted effect. To be realized in titanium.

A while ago we reported on Nookas´Sunglasses „Mercury“. Miley Cyrus has been seen wearing these stylish glasses and now Top Model Amber Rose have been captured with them, too. Maybe we will see them with the new „Venus“ Sunglasses, too.
They´re featuring a range of luxurious materials and finishes. The frames are made of polished stainless steel, with matching rubber nose-pieces and ear guards. They employ a silver mirror coated blue lens for heightened color and contrast acuity, deflection of light, and UV protection. The geometric shape and materials result in a design that embodies technology, futurism, and refined luxury. You can get both, Mercury and Venus, at Nookas´online store here.
Nooka is very excited to release their first line of sunglasses: Mercury. They are available in 4 bright colors, as well as the classic black, and white, matching the popular Zub Zirc collection. Available this month at select stores and at http://www.nooka.com/buy/.
