After a run of cool collaborative releases — including capsules with Adidas Originals — our cult-favourite fashion label Alexander Wang has returned to steal our hearts once more. This season, it does so by joining forces with South Korean eyewear brand Gentle Monster for an exclusive range of sunglasses for its Fall/ Winter collection.

A hybrid between vintage matrix-inspired and timeless square sunglasses, the collection comes with rectangular-cut lenses and classic structured frames, featuring three colourways of red, yellow and black. Each of the pairs hold the ‘Alexander Wang x Gentle Monster’ emblem along with a ‘CEO’ stamp on the temples. The acetate frames are also handmade with built-in nose pads and 100% UV protected lenses.

Although the fresh take on shades was first seen on the Alexander Wang runway back in February, featuring black colours and subtle cat eye silhouettes, a string of style influencers and celebrities have also recently been spotted wearing these latest creations.

As vintage style is currently in full swing, this new, modern take on sunglasses has provided a perfect accessory and trend for us to embrace as we prepare to soak up the sunshine that is to come in the months ahead.

The ‘CEO’ sunglasses are now available both in Alexander Wang and Gentle Monster boutiques worldwide as well as on their online websites.
