What inspired you to design sunglasses with Aperçu?
Ever since I was a kid, I have had an obsession with sunglasses. I visited an endless amount of vintage markets around the world to collect unique pairs. For the longest time, I have been wanting to design my own and when I finally got the opportunity to design together with Aperçu, I knew exactly what I had in mind - a very classic elevated rectangle and a shape that is versatile, in beautiful fall shades, that I personally have been searching for for the longest time. The design of the sunglasses is a mix of all the sunglasses I own; not too sharp, not too round.
How did your silhouette come about? Tell us about your design process.
We have been working so hard to get the shape just right - it's feminine and masculine at the same. I've learned so much from this process and I never knew that so many tiny details can make such a huge difference to the end result. The lenses were one of the hardest aspects of the design process, because I wanted to have the shades just perfect.
What role do sunglasses play in your wardrobe and styling each day?
Those who know me probably notice that I always have my sunglasses with me; either on my head, in my hair, in my bag or hanging on my top. I don't leave the house without sunglasses! It's the finishing touch for every look.
