Alexander Wang has successfully branched out into shoes and handbags and menswear, so it was only going to be a matter of time before sunglasses made their debut. And it looks like that's going to happen sooner, rather than later, as Nylon reports the designer has collaborated on a line with kooky shades queen Linda Farrow. The specs made their debut at the Project trade show in Vegas, and the magazine reports they include "zipper hardware, catlike shapes, and bronzed resin frames." We have a feeling all of this will be used to madcap effect—see the preview shot at right, a flip-up pair that's a little bit Mickey Mouse, a little bit Dwayne Wayne. [Nylon]
