I was pretty amused when I learnt about these sunglasses that have no lenses. Well, I don’t remember any such style that was prevalent in the 80′s. My poor memory and small age (that I was of in the 80′s) can be blamed for that. They say, that this fashion was at its peak in the eighties and I don’t have much problem agreeing with the statement. Why we are talking about them now? It is because Kanye West, the hip hop star, whose new single ‘Stronger’ is soon to be out, is wearing these in the video. Reportedly, he approached glasses maker Alain Mikli for such a design. He was also wearing the glasses for his performance at the concert for Diana. As per my own opinion, I didn’t like them very much. Once in a while they can look cool, but they won’t be having a general fashion application. But I certainly hope that the collaboration will bring us something more happening.
