Ten Loves: Balenciaga Eyewear’s LED Frame

If anyone could ever convince us to buy shades with built-in LEDs that illuminate when you wear them, that person is most certainly Demna Gvasalia.

Balenciaga is a brand committed to incorporating technology in its designs, always finding original and innovative ways to do so. The designer ventures into techy eyewear by introducing a new, sleek frame design, featuring a lightweight LED system that illuminates the Balenciaga logo positioned one of the sunglasses’ arms. The bold, rectangular frame design remains true to the brand’s identity while opening up to advanced, futuristic horizons.

With just one tap, the wearer will be able to easily change the LEDs colour and pattern based on their personal preference. The light can blink, remain static or fade from one colour to another, in blue, red, green, purple, yellow, and white. The LED system automatically illuminates when the sunglasses’ arms are fully extended, and switches off when they are closed. The small invisible battery can be recharged thanks to a USB cable. If you wanna’ glow wherever you go, look no further.
