Walter Van Beirendonck might have shut down the doors to his Antwerp boutique but his talent keeps us interested. Even if sunglasses model WVB/3/4 were made for the ss11 collection, we still believe them to be actual and very sunglassespreservation worthy! In fact, we also have model WVB/3/1 here.
LINDA FARROW had teamed up with WALTER VAN BEIRENDONCK to create several interesting sunglasses among which we particularly like the “superhero WALTER WONDER” man/woman mask which is definetly worthy of saving in our sunglasspreservation archives.
This superhero mask is made of extremly thick and sturdy acetate (or plastic – we are not sure) and is a very large accessory to carry on one’s face. The roundness is perfectly executed. It comes straight from WALTER’s spring-summer 2011 collection. It has been produced in six colorways: black, transparent pink, transparent yellow, transparent green, transparent red and tortoise brown.
The huge bridge has a big “W” punched into it which serves the purpose of both representing the brand as well as symbolizing the superhero attributed word: “WONDER”.
The downside is that most of LINDA FARROW’s sunglasses are produced in China. This does not neccessarily mean the quality is poor, but it definetly means that the very high prices of their glasses are not justified!
