Here’s the latest in what’s turning out to be an increasingly long line of contact lenses designed to make our eyes water. Not literally, of course, but seriously, does the thought of Swarovski crystals on your eyeball sound comfortable to you?
We should hurriedly add here that we have absolutely no evidence to suggest that these lenses, which ring your iris with crystals, are at all uncomfortable to wear (unless, of course, you put them on inside out by mistake, in which case, ouch), so we can’t prosecute them for that. What we can say, however, is that while we’re not opposed to a bit of sparkle for a special occasion, our eyeballs aren’t necessarily the place we want to wear it.
These were created by designer Anthony Mallier and won second place in the Crystal Vision’ competition which was organized by designboom and Swarovski. No word on whether you can actually buy them yet or not, but assuming that you can – would you?
