HOT OR NOT: BORIS BIDJAN SABERI x LINDA FARROW SHUTTER SHADES?

The German-Iranian, Boris Bidjan Saberi, (a favorite of ours) continues his sick ongoing collaboration with the ruthlessly talented Linda Farrow in this new pair of sunglasses with shutter styled frames.

A style made popular by Kanye West a few years back, this revamp is a bit more structured and conceptualized - combining industrial design elements with eyewear construction. We give this a hot! …but what do YOU think? Can shutter shades have a moment once again?

HOT OR NOT: HENRIK VIBSKOV MODERN SUNNIES?

Leave it to Danish designer Henrik Vibskov to complete reinvent the shape of of the standard modern sunglasses. Made in collaboration with Medwinds, these tortoise framed sunnies have two lenses: one is clear and the other dark polarized for the sun, this second one can get hooked on to the frame. Although these might give your face a slight cartoon-eye effect, these have potential to be chic with the right outfit, no? What do YOU think?

HOT OR NOT: INSTAGRAM GLASSES

Ok, this seriously takes Instagram to a whole new level. With over 50 million users (Android and iOS combined), there seems to be nothing that can stop Instagram from photo domination. German designer Markus Gerkes has created the first ever "Instaglasses" concept. Seemingly slick shades at first glance that are built with an implanted 5mp camera in them with a fliter adjuster on the side brim of the glasses. 

The Instaglasses feature Wi-Fi and 3G, 2GB of onboard storage (not sure why you would need this since Instagram photos are stored in the cloud) and a seven hour battery life. Pretty cool, right? We give these a hot! What you YOU think?

HOT OR NOT: JEREMY SCOTT X LINDA FARROW USA SUNNIES

Ok, you might have to do a double take on this one. Odd and fun are both synonymous with any Jeremy Scott creation, but we never expected anything like this! Scott has teamed up with Linda Farrow to concoct on a pair of sunglasses basically in the shape of the United States (hence the name “Map of USA” sunglasses). If you’re that brave, you can cop yours now at Opening Ceremony. So what are out thoughts…

HOT OR NOT: MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA HAND PAINTED SNEAKERS

Above is a snapshot of MMM's latest Hi-Top replica sneaker. The canvas hi-tops are recreated in an all-canvas build and set atop a gum outsole. Featuring an agglomeration of hand-brushed, light grey paint strokes, tonal oversized laces and painted D-ring hardware, and an interior leather lining round out the hand-designed pair. Digging it. We say HOT! But what do YOU think…

HOT OR NOT: CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN S/S 2012 SPIKED SNEAKERS

Gaudy can be good, right? Above are a pair of spiked multi-colored metallic leather shoes fresh out of the Christian Louboutin Spring/Summer 2012 menswear sneaker collection. Don’t fret! If you’re digging the kicks, but not the colorway - the shoes do come in a more modest black and white. Not perfect for any occasion, but a beau with just the right style (Bryanboy perhaps?) just might be able to pull them off. We say HOT! But what do YOU think…
