Wearable technology is here to stay. It means the tech needs to look better and Google Glass definitely needs a makeover.
Google just announced that they will partner with Luxottica. They will put together a team to “design, develop and distribute a new breed of eyewear for Glass,” which Luxottica CEO Andrea Guerra expects to see in stores in 2015
Luxottica already owns eyewear brands such as Ray-Ban, Persol, Oakley, and manufactures eyewear for Prada, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and others.

There is something about blue lenses, and some have even made it their hallmark. Colored or tinted lenses definitely make your glasses unique!

Sunglasses aren’t just a summer accessory!
The classic Persol 649 is a perfect all-season sunglass. This stylish guy matches them perfectly good with his autumn coat in the sunset.
We’ve been writing about this sunglass many times before, (HERE) and (HERE). But as it’s one of the most googled frames and also a lovley sunglass we would like to do it again!
Below you can see the classic Persol 714, which is the folding sunglass that Steve McQueen wore in the movie Thomas Crown Affair. The blue lenses gives the sunglass a relaxed look.
The Classics are a great investment and will look good for many occasions and for many years. If taken good care of, a classic sunframe may be passed down to the next generation. If you find one of these in your parent’s drawers, take great care of it.
These classics have been inspiration for many many sunglasses and still going strong.

l.a. Eyeworks always has crazy shapes and colors. And now they have the craziest textures as well. It looks and feels like wood grain – feels very soft and natural – but its actual acetate!
Even other brands, such as Vasuma and Theo have made wood-inspired frames. What do You think? Bonocle loves it!
