Thom Browne Announces Eyewear

True story: This past weekend while trolling around the ritzy TriBeCa neighborhood in New York we ducked into Thom Browne's clinically austere store to avoid some weekend rain. To kill some time we tried on a few suits and had the Browne clones dress us up in his latest exaggerated suiting. The result was actually marvelous -- together, the high-waisted dark gray slacks that cut off two inches before the floor, a crisp white dress shirt and a cropped blazer, all crafted in mohair, made us feel dapper beyond belief. The only problem (other than the mind-numbing price tag) was that we needed a spiffy pair of quirky yet cool sunglasses to complete the outfit. Sadly, as of this weekend, Browne did not offer sunglasses as part of his business plan. But boy, do things change quickly. This morning WWD reported that Browne, in conjunction with Dita eyewear Inc., will be releasing shades. This deal marks Browne's first trademark license as well as the first time Dita has partnered up with a designer, though they have worked with the haberdasher on his spectacles for previous shows and presentations. With an emphasis on a retro shape, the unisex glasses will cost a pretty penny -- ranging from $450 to $1,000.
