Guest Contribution : 5 Great Sunglasses brands

What makes a sunglasses brand great? First of all, it’s the quality of their products. This includes the materials used and the craftsmanship. Then, there’s design, which to some is even more important than quality. Last, but not least, it’s all about business. Taking the right decision at the right time means a successful label. Below are five famous sunglasses models, all created by brands who knew when it was time to enter the field, and how to do it. Click here for amazing brands that have defined what sunglasses are.

5 GREAT SUNGLASS BRANDS

1. Ray Ban Wayfarer. The brand was founded in 1937 with the purpose of making goggles for pilots. They branched out into eyewear for the masses, and to great success. The Wayfarers are one of the most popular sunglasses models of our times, although they’ve been previously adored in the 50s and 80s. Click here for more Ray Ban models on GlassesOnWeb.com.

2. Prada 27 NS. What began as a leathergoods shop in 1913’s Italy evolved slowly, but steadily. They launched a ready-to-wear line for the first time in 1989, and one year later they started designing eyewear. The past few years have been huge for Prada sunglasses, most of their collections immediately becoming popular with the fashion crowd.

3. Persol 0649. Similar to Ray Ban, the brand started early on (1917) to provide eyewear for a specific demographics (tram drivers). Their most famous model was popularized by Steve McQueen in the 60s, and it was revived in the past few years by both male and female celebrities.

4. Tom Ford Nikita. The designer launched his namesake brand in 2006, complete with menswear, beauty, eyewear and accessories. Already experienced from Gucci and YSL, Tom Ford knew what he wanted. Just a few years later, his sunglasses are worn by virtually any famous face and are coveted worldwide.

5. Miu Miu 10 NS. The sister brand of Prada, Miu Miu was founded in 1993. The brand soon launched an eyewear line, which became successful in no time. Along with their pentagonal frames, these are the most popular of recent seasons, especially in their glitter version.

Have a Dose of Fashion Porn to Lift Your Spirits!

Hiya Poutlings!

The festive holidays are notoriously stressful because as everyone is scrambling to do 2 weeks worth of work in 5 whole days, plus buy everything they can get their grubby little paws, wrapping it, making it look purdy for your mother-in-law, on whilst deciding what you’re going to do with the family on Christmas day! It’s beyond exhausting!

But fret not, because in the fashion world it’s now spring/summer 2013 as their ad campaigns for that season drop.

Back in the real world, we’re dying of heat exhaustion in the office on my last day of work for 2013!

So, pick your medicine and sit back and unravel those frazzled nerves witha hefty dose of fashion porn!

… dive into the colour saturated sport-fest that is Cara Delvevigne in DKNY SS13.

Or recharge your batteries with some ultra-modern mod Michael Kors.

But my own particular favourite shot-in-the-arm to lift the weight of the past week is Dolce & Gabbana’s SS13 campaign!

Because nothing lifts my spirits than an older Italian man letting it all hang out. (Look again closely, on the right hand side).

or some of my other favourites…

PRADA has gone MOBILE

Hiya Poutlings

A large trend with fashion brands is moving towards mobile commerce. While some brands don’t even have an online capability to shop, Prada just created their first app for the iPad.

Have you ever needed a little Prada on the go? Well, now you’re in luck.

Featuring an interactive palazzo, the app allows customers to virtually browse capsule collections and special products. Designed by Hollywood visual effects specialist James Lima, the app will update according to the season. For instance, later this month they will unveil the Bloom jewellery line featuring flowers in plexi glass frames.

While sales via mobile devices continue to rise, even some large retailers like H&M continue to delay their move into e-commerce.

MODEL ALERT : Julia Nobis

Heya Poutlings!

I love sharing with you some of the fantastic models I think are real ROLE MODELS to anyone that is aspiring to be the best model they can be… and let’s be clear, I’m talking about REAL modeling, not just looking shit hot to be some masturbation material for teenage boys and balding men! Actually, making a living from modeling, people paying you to do it… You know what I mean, right? Good. Let’s continue….

Last time, I introduced Anja Rubik, who is no less than amazing and such a HUGE name in the industry. Today, I present a model who is young, relatively new to the industry compared to Anja, but I think we haven’t seen the apex of this particular models career to date.

JULIA NOBIS

Julia Nobis is no doubt a rising star. She was only discovered in 2009.She has a unique look with a particular strong appearance. She’s known for playing guitar backstage before a show.

BEFORE AND AFTER BEING DISCOVERED WALKING HOME FROM SCHOOL

Julia started modeling locally, in Australia, at the age of 16.

Her first time on an international catwalks was during CALVIN KLEIN fall 2010 in New York and she exclusively walked only for them.

 

The next step on Julia’s modeling career was during the same season but this time on the runways of London Fashion Week. She opened the fall TOPSHOP in London and also closed the RICHARD NICOLL show. During her time in London she got invites to Milan and Paris and she ended up walking for PRADA, DOLCE & GABANA, LOUIS VUITTON, VALENTINO, MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA and MIU MIU Fall fashion shows and as you can imagine she became well known as one of the best newcomers into the fashion world to date.

Later on in 2010 she walked for her first couture show, VALENTINO HAUTE COUTURE in Paris.

2011 Spring fashion shows she opened and closed the POENZA SCHOULER fashion show and also walked for BURBERRY, ALEXANDER WANG, LOUIS VUITTON, CHANEL and BALENCIAGA runways. She also presented looks at the spring CHANEL and ELIE SAAB couture fashion shows.

 

During Spring 2012, FASHIONTV’s FIRST FACE COUNTDOWN featured Julia Nobis as number 3. She was beat by Anja Rubik and Amyeline Valade.

Currently, Julia has only been on one fashion magazine cover, Australian Vogue featured her in 2011 where she posed for the photographer Kai Z Feng.

She has appeared in a number of editorials for British and Italian Vogue, i-D, Dazed & Confused, Interview and W Magazine.

What I particulary love about this model is that she lives an alternative lifestyle, she has broken the international stereotype of MODEL! Julia is really into martial arts, some of her favourite bands are Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stoneage and Rage Against the Machine. She has the perfect mix in her book of “alternative” or should I say edgy shots combined with standard commerical and high fashion couture! The proof is in this models book, and I think she’s got it nailed. Don’t you??

So, models and models-in-training, are you inspired?
