Elton John hosting the 20th Annual Oscars Viewing Party

And speaking of the Oscars…

Elton John wears Rialto by l.a.Eyeworks in Red Velvet with Fuchsia to host his 20th Annual Oscars Viewing Party last night in Los Angeles.

The event raised $5.25 million for the Elton John AIDS Foundation!

Elton was way more colorful than these handsome gentlemen I posted about yesterday.

My First Woody Sunglass – Capital

I’m very lucky who got this lovely sunglass for Valentines day, much better than going on a date ;). The frame model is called “Ellie” in the color named “Cherry”, from Capital. They are handmade in the USA, all made of wood and with lenses from Carl Zeiss. I never thought a wood frame would be this comfortable!

If you want to now more about Capital, please see THIS post we’ve posted before about how the frames are made.

Vasuma + Sandqvist

Two of my favorite Swedish brands are now doing a small collaboration – how great, huh?! You will soon find this lovely leather case with neck strap from Sandqvist, of genuine Swedish leather, to your Vasuma frames. I’ll sure try to find one of these, if possible in Berlin? Hmm..
