Strange Sunglasses: Kerin Rose lace-covered and paint-spattered sunnies

Well, Lady Gaga is going to just love these, isn’t she? The lace-covered ones, especially, because as we all know, if it’s strange-looking AND fails to fulfill the purpose it was made for, that’s a definite win on the “fashion-is-art-and-don’t-you-forget-it” front.

Of course, we’re just assuming it would be difficult to see through a layer of lace. Maybe it isn’t. Maybe you’re supposed to wear them on your head, rather than over your eyes. Maybe you’re only supposed to wear them in an ironic way. Who knows. What we do know is the the lace-covered glasses from the image above are £220 at Browns, the paint-spattered ones next to them are £280, and the pearl and chain trimmed glasses are £260 and £250 respectively.

What do you think of them, though?

    Why not just superglue some lace onto some Primark shades? They wouldn’t look any cheaper…

    I think they are very expensive and unless you are a crazy celebrity you can get off by wearing them at a themed 80`s party.

    Oh, I love them all… And would totally superglue up something like that myself! They are so cool, however, definitely not worth that amount of money.

    I’m surprised that nobody’s recognized those glasses before..they’ve been worn by Lady Gaga and Rihanna:

      Thanks for answering my question – I was sure I’d seen Gaga wearing them…

    I could probably do any of those for $10 with a hot glue gun. Why must they look so cheap? Can’t expensive things look expensive?

    I cannot stand that particular kind of lace.. it’s the same cheap and scratchy stuff at ANY fabric store. Yuck!

    Those chain/pearl ones look so so cheap, not to mention ridiculous, like a kid was playing with some glue and cheap necklaces. I quite like the paint splattered ones though. My love of all things lace is clouding my judgement on the other pair.

      Yeah, I’m sure I’ve seen version of the pearl ones on market stalls. “Cheap” was my first thought, too, although I kinda like the other pairs

      Why? Because you’re the only person in the world who’s allowed to hold an opinion? Are you opposed to all forms of free speech, or is it just opinions that are different from yours that you seek to suppress?
