Too cool.

Rococo! Prada Minimal Baroque Capsule Collection

Even those serious about their sunglasses must admit its rare to come across a truly innovative and beautiful design.  But the Prada Minimal Baroque line is special.  First seen in the Spring 2011 show, their glossy curlicues are eye-catchingly cool and unlike anything else around. 

The standout shades have since grown into a capsule collection.  In April, two new Minimal Baroque models were introduced, using ” the same design matrix yet with different creative development.”   To mark the launch, Prada commissioned a series of photographs and illustrations inspired by their rococo curls.

Love them.

The Prada Baroques can be yours for $290 from Saks.com.

Anna Dello Russo: Prada for Days


She’s wearing more Prada than you can shake a stick at, but I was pumped to see Vogue Japan’s Editor-at-Large Anna Dello Russo wearing the colorblocked “eyebrow” Prada sunglasses at the shows in Milan and Paris. She actually pulls them off really well, but could anyone else?

PS:  Entire style blogs chronicle ADR’s endless and extravagant wardrobe of straight-from-the-runway flash, but her own site, annadellorusso.com, is kind of amazing. “I don’t want to be cool, I want to be fashion!”

Arched: Prada FW 10

Prada’s FW 2010 campaign was front and center in my new Vogue and I was excited to see their “eyebrow” eyewear made the cut (on the left hand side).


Below, a peek back at their debut in the Prada Fall/Winter show held this February.
