Leandra Medine, girl behind the blog, The Man Repeller, recently posted this snapshot of herself. It caught my eye immediately because of her sunglasses. Those are by Linda Farrow but are they not eerily similar to the vintage ones I have in the shop right now designed by Michele Lamy, Rick Owens wife and muse?
The Farrows are from the spring 2011 collaboration that the brand did with Jeremy Scott. The Lamy's palm tree version is from the 1980s (maybe late 70s) .....some friendly inspiration perhaps? Though I would bet a couple of dollars that if I dug a little further I would find an even earlier version of this frame.
Ahhhhh fashion - you have to love it and perhaps giggle at it occasionally, no?
