When your brand is based in Calabasas, California, you’ve got more reason to wear sunglasses all year round, even as the days get darker and gloomier elsewhere. But we all need a dope pair of protective sunglasses, not just Kanye West. And these new sports sunglasses from YEEZY’s Season 6 collection will have you feeling California even as the weather turns Alaska.
Last year, sunglasses trends were all about thin, The Matrix-style micro-frame sunglasses from the late ’90s. Now, thin sunglasses are taking a backseat to sports sunglasses with much wider frames inspired by motocross and cycling goggles. While Oakley is the king of the sports sunglasses game, other brands have been catching up, from Heron Preston, Palace, and A-COLD-WALL* to Prada, COMME des GARÇONS, and Kenzo.
Like Kanye himself, YEEZY isn’t shying away either. The latest Season 6 collection includes a pair of on-trend sports sunglasses in gold, blue, or black. Retailing for $300, the wraparound sunnies tap into one of the hottest trends of the year, leaving micro-shades blue-pilled and plugged back into the Matrix. Love or hate Kanye, YEEZY is doing things right.
