San-Francisco-based sunglasses designer, Alexander Feldman, who is an optician, is so committed to eyewear that he designed sunglasses for his bride-to-be, Stephanie, and himself for their wedding last year. Their guests also received pairs. Were you not on the guest list, Feldman's Alexander Daas line is now available for the rest of us.
Feldman has been working on the collection for four years. The sunglasses from his first collection (women's sunglasses are called "eye do"; men's sunglasses are called "eye do II") are crafted in Japan using zyl acetate and European hinges and have a unique signature cut-out at the temple tips that allows them to be hung on the eyewear chains that accompany the collection. The face-flattering shape is fashionable without being too trendy. The men's glasses are a softened take on the aviator while the women's glasses, shown above, are oversized and curved for a woman's face in a shape that takes the best of aviator and cats-eye profiles to create something new. The sunglasses sell for $399 and come in four colors for women (black, tortoise, chocolate and olive tortoise) and three for men (moss, tortoise and gray blue).
