Eyewear brand Smoke x Mirrors prides itself on combining innovation with classicism. Naturally, it makes sense designers would collaborate with Barneys for a product that is as unique as both companies.

The stunning result? A men’s sunglasses capsule based on Smoke x Mirrors iconic “Letter” frames.

In the past, the “Letter” has seen beige and black iterations but for the Barneys exclusive Smoke x Mirrors have gone a little more daring with a green crystal acetate. Boldness like this can only be expected when two New York bastions of style and forward-thinking unite.

The style was inspired by 1960s Memphis and the sounds of blue-eyed soul. A fresh take has not deprived the eyeglasses of its trademarks: The etched logo on the corner of the lens, and silver-tone metal at the temples. The “Letter” is a confident example of the past and the future uniting in contemporary harmony.

Shop the frames now through Barneys New York.
