It is a first for us to talk about an eyewear label, but when we saw this new designer in Paris, we just couldn't help ourselves. Paul Easterlin has a background working in the fashion industry and now he's taken all of that skill and started his own eponymous eyewear label just over a year ago.
Not only do we love the thick frames and statement shapes, we love that this line has personality. Beside the smooth, traditional texture of some of the frames sit the faux wood look and frames splattered with silver. We also love the frames with comic book prints, because its totally cool to like that sort of thing now. There is an array of both sunglasses and clear lenses, though we are waiting for the moment we can get some prescription Paul Easterlin's. Each piece is crafted in Italy, so you know they are great quality.
They're already getting some great attention, becoming a hit with DJ's at music festivals and gaining a fan in Cristiano Ronaldo. While the brand is still a baby, you can already find Paul Easterlin Eyewear in stores from Dubai and Ibiza all the way to L.A.
