Feelin’ shady? Or perhaps not shady enough? If so, head over to the Guns and Shades pop up shop in San Fran to pick up some vintage sunglasses (read: no one else is gonna have a pair quite like yours). The temporary boutique will feature retro frames from Mayfourteenth, a freshly-launched eyewear brand from famed photographer Benjamin Belsky, and will feature an assortment of dead stock vintage frames that include a rare pair of Cazal shades (remember those ones that your fave hip hop stars rocked in the 80s?) priced at $1,200.
Guns and Shades Pop-Up Shop
When: Open daily from 12-8 p.m. through July 14, 2010

The YURI. Handmade in Berlin, THESE are what happens when German “eyewear coutouriers” Mykita collaborate with French designer Romain Kremer. These sunglasses were inspired by Yuri Gagarin, the first man in outer space, “‘made to protect the 3rd eye and the brain, reinforcing the idea of a new type of man, with a sci-fi warrior touch.” These come in black or red, for a hot 575 Euros, available for Fall/Winter.
Lady Gaga has already been spotted rocking the Robocop meets Kid Robot-looking shades:

If you want shades that only cover your EYES, how about Mykita’s collab w/Herr von Eden? The collection is called EDENEYES, and is “available” in black, white, red, and grey – but there were only 80 pairs made! The figure 8 shape represents the mathematical symbol of infinity, as in timeless design.
Surpise! Gaga is also a fan of these.
To infinity, and beyond!
