In celebration of Porter‘s 50th anniversary last year, the eyewear specialists at Oliver Peoples have teamed with the Japanese label to create a line of travel-friendly foldable sunglasses. Rendered in acetate, with titanium parts in a spectrum of five original colors, the frames are made in Japan from premium Japanese and Italian materials. More importantly, the sunglasses are all folding sunglasses. This being a joint effort with Porter, each pair also comes complete with a Porter-made neoprene sleeve that keeps your precious specs in good nick and makes for easy transport.
Brooklyn-based company The Hill-Side has added some life to the typically uninspired world of ties and handkerchiefs, and not just through its use of patterning. The company, established by brothers Emil and Sandy Corsillo, used creative .gifs to build their most recent lookbook. Whereas wearing a tie or scarf necessitates that the object move with you, the moving images in this lookbook reverses those roles — making the wearer inanimate and adding more personality to the pieces themselves. The products range from lush silk dotted scarves to sharp, slim native-print ties, all of which display an independent attitude. The Hill-Side’s Spring Summer 2013 lookbook can be seen in its entirety here
