Visiting Star Wars Land, Tunisia

STAR WARS LAND // BONOCLESTAR WARS LAND // BONOCLE

During my trip to Tunisia I took 2 days for going on a road trip. One of the highlights from the trip was definitely visiting Star Wars land, I had no clue Star Wars was filmed in the desert of Tunisia(!). So cool!

I spent the day together with my latest addition of sunglasses: these awesome shades from Hyde’s. I don’t think they’ve reached the stores yet, but watch out for updates because their latest collection is really awesome.

HYDES SUNGLASSES SS13 Barbara Canales

Pro tip: put prescription lenses in your sunglasses. It’s the best thing to do before a vacation. For a road trip spending the days sleeping in a bus, visiting the desert and very dry environments it’s simply impossible wearing contacts without getting your eyes extremely dry. I’m therefore very happy I had the time to put prescription lenses to these sunnies, and best thing: they look exactly like the original lenses.

On the Street… David from HYDE’s

I had the chance to meet up with David, founder of HYDE’s Spectacles, the other day. Very nice to meet him and having a look at the novelties of HYDE’s. I really liked how David wears his own design perfectly matched with a grey coat.

See their collection online (here).

MEET HYDE’S SPECTACLES

Last week when we visited Ibeyostudio we also had a closer look on Hyde’s Specs. Some of our favorites follow here:

Hyde’s No12 – AMAZING color and interesting feminine shape in a vintage style.

Hyde’s No15 – Love to see new versions of the classic tortoise.

Hyde’s leather case – one of the best eyewear cases I’ve seen. Much nicer than the ones from both Persol and Ray-Ban, as this one is made of real leather.

——
Hyde’s Spectacles is a Swedish eyewear brand, focused on bold sunglasses. As a matter of fact, they only do sunglasses. Very cool ones. With no logos, no mass-production – Simply a cool and friendly brand doing sunglasses for cool and friendly people.

Last week we had the pleasure to visit Ibeyostudio during a lovely breakfast with live music, to have a preview of the SS13 collections from brands such as Hyde’s Specs, Ann-Sofie BACK Atelje and The Local Firm.

Below follow some pictures from the collaboration between Hyde’s Spectacles and Ann-Sofie BACK Atelje.

Hyde’s for Ann-Sofie BACK Atelje. Mjau!

The collaboration contains two frames, one for BACK available in three colors (see the first pictures) and one for Ann-Sofie BACK Atelje, which is the caty shape above. Very nice to see such avant-garde design from Sweden!
