Dolce & Gabbana: Matt Silk
The super nice folks from the Dolce & Gabbana team in Italy sent me these as part of their latest eyewear collection, Matt Silk. The new collection is a love story between retro grace and fashionable modern times, with an unmistakable touch of Italian spirit. The oversize papillon shape is a tribute to the sexy cat eye styles of the past. Inspired by the enthusiastic energy of the 50’s, the Matt Silk collection highlights very classic shapes in powdery colors: taupe, cherry red, cerulean sky, lipstick pink, mother earth brown and jet black. I really can't wait to wear them out! They're currently sold just in the store and not on-line, but you can check out their campaign video on their blogazine site, Swide.
Update: The Matt Silk sunglasses just arrived in the Dolce & Gabbana boutique in Singapore (Ion Orchard) last week. Only the black and red models are currently available in stock. Words are that they will be receiving more in the upcoming weeks. The retail price is 330 SGD.
