Havelock by Leisure Society

My sunglass of the week is the Havelock by Leisure Society.  I believe everyone needs a good aviator sunglass in their collection.  It is one of those iconic styles that just looks great on so many people.  In a world of eyewear one of the standout brands for design and craftsmanship is Leisure Society by Shane Baum.  Hal Rubenstein wrote a nice article for Forbes magazine in which he talked to Shane about what makes Leisure Society special and unique.  In the article, Shane says, “I am trying to say this with as much modesty as I can.  Leisure Society glasses radiate luxury without ostentation and are among the best in the world.” The collection is made up of classic frame...

The Tides Of Akoya

Leisure Society has presented a new video called The Tides Of Akoya.   Watching it really gives you a sense for everything the brand represents.  “Leisure Society is an extension of designer Shane Baum’s authentic perspective on what life should be: spending time with family, friends, and enjoying intimate moments of absolute leisure.”  As I watched I found myself drifting away into the calm waters of the rocky beaches.

Christian Slater and The Combination Aviator Look

Starring in season 2 of Mr. Robot, Christian Slater is wearing a sharp looking combination metal and plastic aviator sunglass by Etro.  The large round shape flatters his square jaw line nicely, and I love the high flat bar look, especially in colors like silver and black, black and gold, or tortoise and gold.     This look has been trending lately for men and women.  We carry several looks in our store that represent this style.     Perhaps the closest one Pfeiffer by Leisure Society.  Leisure Society was created by Shane Baum, a Council of Fashion Designers of America member, and is notable for extensive use of Japanese titanium with 12, 18 and 24 carat gold plating.  All...

Frame of the week: Brechin Sunglasses by Leisure Society

I love this creation from Shane Baum for Leisure Society.  The style pays tribute to the iconic Ray Ban Olympian from 1965, which was worn by Peter Fonda in Easy Rider.  More recently Jon Hamm as Don Draper wore a similar look in  Mad Men.  The Brechin takes this legendary look to the level of luxury.  Brechin is made of pure Japanese titanium and plated in 18k gold as shown below.  The laser etched metal decor is exquisite.  I think this is a must have for the sophisticated and stylish man or woman of the modern era.  Leisure Society is the newest collection available at Hicks Brunson Eyewear.
