Saw this on Highsnobiety. A company is customizing vintage sunglasses that cost up to $50,000...that makes the Carbon C-Six seem affordable now 😅

Pretty expensive for vintage. Lots of expensive glasses out there:

The list above of course is not exhaustive. There are bejewelled pairs from Sama and Cartier, for instance, that are above $100k.

Omega, one of the more famous premium watch brands out there is putting out its own sunglasses:

Not my thing, too clunky, but it should do well just by association with the brand.

I saw a couple of the female track athletes wearing Nike Wing during the Olympics, and I thought it looked great. Definitely made for bigger faces. It's not something you can wear and walk down the street without looking like a fool, but it looked futuristically sci-fi. At $1,200 a pair, I'm still deciding if it's worth getting. I certainly won't be wearing them, but they look like great display pieces.

That Wing is something special... Too expensive though.

Parasite Eyewear putting out cool stuff again. This one celebrating Star Wars. Not sure on the details, but I'm sure there will be more news as Silmo occurs over the weekend:

I love that brand.
It's been years I promised myself to buy a couple of their Stereo models.
Still need to pull the trigger though.

Prompted by their gold award from Silmo over the weekend, I took a look at a local dealer's stock of Parasite this morning. It seems they've increased their level of quality over the last couple years and is more in-line with their pricing. Still thinking about getting the Sentinel (which is about $900 CAD after taxes), but I'd have to buy it without seeing it since it is a special order.

Having just said the quality of their eyewear has improved over the years, Parasite's engineering and build quality for their limited editions are staggeringly simple. The Sentinel looks like it was designed and engineered as part of a 9th grade industrial arts project. Side view shows it's basically two stamped stainless steel plates affixed to a goggle:

awful :/

I just heard that they are going bankruptcy.
Better buy the ones I wanted right now.

WOW! I did not expect that. They seemed to be doing well judging by their cool both at Silmo (or maybe that's why they're bankrupt). They seemed poised to have a great 2017 after their Silmo award. Hopefully they can recover from these recent troubles.

Erroneous information, sorry ^_^
That was a misunderstanding.

Anyway, the Cyber 01 will be mine :P

The Cyber 1 is very OTT and awesome. Snoop Dogg and RZA has worn it at some of their performances.
