Lena (LOVE IT)
I randomly clicked myself through Luisa Via Roma when I came across these crazy, amazing shades as my interest always takes the path of outstanding, interesting things that you rarely (if not on Anna Dello Russo) see on other people.
And so here we are with another example of an amazing head interpreting the everyday-life-wear into something special. Something, that surely catches everyone's eye yet builds an exceptional look. Playful, overloaded with pearls or flowers and crowned with Swarovski stones, skulls, feathers or oversized rivets, designer Kerin Rose always seems to be full of creativity that brings the normal sunglasses one is used to wear into another light. Always with a hint of rock'n'roll, Kerin is said to refer to her time studying classical music as a child and combining this to her love for rock.
Founded in 2008 with a capsule collection of four frames, A-Morir has been commissioned by contemporary artists and stars. From Lady Gaga (how could it be different!?), Tyra Banks, Snoop Dogg and Grace Jones to Rihanna, Fergie and Nicki Minaj - it seems as pretty much everyone has been falling in love with Kerin's designs before I did (shame on me). Naming her models after her favourite composers (therefore having this component of her love for music in each of them) gives each piece an individual feeling, makes a statement and pretty much goes for the in your face look. Well, indeed. Looking at all of these handcrafted beauties and superstars just doesn't do it different than forcing others to look in your face.
Going "big, hard and far" is definitely out of question with these babes.
