Visionizer: Marine Serre and Gentle Monster Create Two Pairs of Signature Shades
We know what you’re thinking: what’s the point of splashing out on a pair of new sunglasses whilst we’re stuck in the house for days on end? But realistically, haven’t you already got summer on the mind? That sweet taste of freedom when we can drink tinnies in the park, host barbeques with our mates and dance all night long in the blazing July heat will be glorious. We’re craving it.
It wouldn’t be a proper summer without a signature pair of shades, and Marine Serre is making the case to become your go-to frames this year. Teaming up with experimental eyewear brand Gentle Monster, the LVMH Prize-winning designer has envisioned the Visionizer collection, consisting of two noughties-inspired sunglasses which come stamped with Serre’s synonymous moon crescent logo.
The first pair – with thick frames and a sunset gradient lens – are based on the sort of sunnies you’d wear to do extreme outdoor sports, but would look just as good on a dancefloor at 4am. While the metallic second pair gives cycling eyewear a glamorous re-up. Roll on June so we can take these beauties out for a spin.
