Love these pics, as usual. The belted herringbone coat is fabulous! The second shot of that very stylish couple is great too… love his use of the tie! That fur coat in the next shot is to die for… can I borrow that? Kanye and friend look very dashing in their matching shades too! http://www.skylarkmanor.com
I had a (correting) pair of those! So silly of me to lose or misplace them. I guess I'll find them either when they are no longer in fashion or when I have another pair done (in short: when they become useless!)
I've been wearing RayBan Wayfarer non-stop from age 18 to age 30 (I'm italian, when I say non-stop I mean I put my sun glasses on just outside the door even in full winter if there's the smallest beam of light). I needed some rest (10 years). Last winter I started feeling a new desire of wayfarer, I knew they were going to revival!!!! Vale-ria
Wayferers (as in Ray-Ban ones) aren't exactly new though Scott. What is new (and very cool) are the more rounded, tortoise shapes that have come out, like your Oliver People's pair. And I didn't know Kanye and Anna know each other! How nice!
my favorite picture is the front row gent with camel coat on lap. lovelovelove his understated with edge, mod style… great hair beard teeth smile, wow! ooh..strong nose too! sexy! so much more than wafarers to admire. do i see cuffs on the jacket?cool! subtle fold of pocket square is great as is his ear ring. this guy is so cool. please can someone tell me who he is? god he has 'it' in bucket loads!
It's too bad that KW never smiles whenever his picture is taken; of the times that he smiled on photographs he looked hot! He looks sexier when he smiles. As usual, everyone in the photographs looks so chic!
my FaVE complete/H2t Look is def the 4th pic.. lady with Camel coat with Fur Collar? next best is 3rd Pic, Lady with brown Fur Coat with "leopard print" wayfarers.. the WayFarers are def a Cool classic Style that is here to stay?! http://aintfashionbutstyle.blogspot.com/
Huge sunglasses in low-light read as insecure and an affectation to me. Many people seem to think that they are more attractive with huge sunglasses when I think it just makes them seem generic. Your eyes are much more interesting than big sunglasses!
I think there has been overuse of the wayfarers. They are great sunglasses and built for infinity, it just ticks me off, looking like every kid beneath 20, once I put them on now. Hope the dazzle is not going to last for ever. The sunglasses of the man in the 6th picture and those of the woman in the last one, next to Kanye, are way too big for their faces. They stick out on the sides, because the shape of their faces is not that wide. You should always consider that, once you choose a model for yourself, it has to stick with your face shape.
I love the details you can see in the first picture: the belt tied around her open jacket, the striped shirt peeking through, the pattern in the breast pocket. (And she's a Canon girl. :D)
The second and fourth pictures are my next two favourite. Love the all black/navy ensembles, and his baggy pants/use of tie. And the back in the fourth one makes me so happy. The fact that the manila envelope just FITS with the outfit also makes me smile.
Cool photos! How cool is it there is a red car in the background for the picture of Garance? And I could't help but notice…from the Asian couple look, isn't the guy Jung-Nam Bae, the model/actor in Korea?
the first photo is charming. love the mix of stripe with houndstooth. the third photo..drool.. those shoes! the sixth photo..gent with the mustard coat in his lap.. yes..those sunglasses are the same one's i've worn for years.. persol. the last photo..is that kanye west? he needs a better sunglass frame..with less curve and more rectangle.
Thank you for the very attractive pictures…and the recognition of a trend. I am a 72 years old with a yen for fashion. I've had Ray Bans for years and many other brands, about a year ago I bought a pair of red Wayfares and while in Florence last October I bought a pair of die for Persol. I also have an old pair of Cartier tortoise (imitation :) that are in the same style; after your pictures I am happy with my possessions. Thank you for making me feel stylish
This is the main problem I have with fashion – people are such sheep. Someone, somewhere – these things feel as elusive as radiation carried by the wind (do they gather in some sort of cult-like secret meeting?) – decides that this style of sunglasses is it, so everyone starts wearing them regardless of whether they're actually the most flattering for their face shape.
At the shows (and on the street) I want to see diversity, not everyone looking like they belong in a secret club. For me these shades will always scream Tom Cruise in 'Risky Business. They are the eyewear equivalent of the Members Only jacket.
1st I have the same sunglasses (wayfarers) and they've proven to be the greatest pair ever! So plain, practical and all time classic! 2nd I love garance's photo!!! 3rd The shades of the girl in the third photo are so nice!
Wayfarers have such a nice design. Unfortunately, people my age (20) tend to just get some cheap knockoffs which don't use the structure of the frame well and end up just looking chinzty. Obviously, you don't need to get Ray-Ban brand, but you need to keep in mind the purpose of wearing a sturdy frame like that. All of the pictures show perfect applications of the style.
the sunnies ADR has on are the Celine Audreys in large, and they're meant to look oversized (they "stick out" at the sides, though the legs are quite thick and the glasses fit snugly on even a slim face). Celine Bal Harbour has a wait list a mile long, stores in NYC never got them… finally got my hands on them in Paris.
the pair Alessandra has on aren't Celines, unless they're a very old model. I can't make out the logo on the leg.
My apologies to the Wayfarer: I've seen the Wayfarer design around sooooo much particularly over the past year or so, that I thought it must be due to go out of fashion soon. I must admit though, I hadn't noticed it around much in previous years, and I'm obviously wrong about it going out of style at the mo. The design must be having a surge of popularity, which I should've known is a natural occurance for the Classics. Ciao, L. x x
Everyone looks great in these shots, but I have to say, I don't think it's the sunglasses that are doing it. To be honest, I've never understood the appeal of the wayfarers, they just seem too flat to me, they stand away from the face too much. I like a pair of sunglasses that feel a little more organic, if that makes any sense, that feel more like they've taken into account the curves of a human face.
Believe the gentleman with the camel jacket on his lap is sporting Persol 2924-S. I wore those on my way to work this morning. Can't tell if he's got them in black or dark bordeaux (bordeaux's the way to go).
I like Garance's the best. Not too deep into the face. It's a trend I do not like, particularly on myself. I have searched for this shape and can't find it because I live in Toronto and every shop has the big ones.
Garance looking mighty jolly :) Don't blame her. Doing something she loves, and looking good. I would be jolly too. I got plenty wayfarers months back and they are all oversized ones. And yes in black heavy frames. The bloke in the asia couple reminds me of Japanese gangster; bit skinny with too much fabric flopping at the bottom. Sorry mate not working for me. The others are faultless. Great shots.
Wayfarers are truly amazing sunglasses. They are so clean, crisp and sharp. They make you look sophisticated yet extremely cool.
The 3rd photo the girl is wearing Super Retro Future wayfarer sunglasses.
The 6th photo of Stefano Pilati, he is wearing Persol wayfarer sunglasses.
The 7th photo with Kayne and Anna, Kayne West is wearing Oliver Peoples Daddy B sunglasses, Anna Della Russo is wearing Celine sunglasses.
Garance looks stunning in her classic Ray Ban wayfarers. After seeing this photo i really want to buy some ray ban wayfarers. I have some chanel wayfarers, but the original ray ban looks so classic and so perfect.
I love all the photos, i am especially loving the coats. Thank you Scott!! :)
Oh wow, the guy with the camel coat in his lap is wearing a martenitza (the red and white thread on his wrist)! I think this is great, in Bulgaria we give it to friends and family on the 1st of March and wish each other health and happiness!:) Ekaterina Larsson
