Cat ears are still a thing right now, and we definitely spotted plenty of pairs at last weekend's Anime Expo. Mix this feline fashion trend with the DIY aesthetic that many brands are championing (see: Made Eyewear) and you get Revé, a new avant-garde eyewear line.
Designed by FIDM grad and model René Chu (who splits her time between LA and Hong Kong), the sassy shades come in a variety of frame styles, colors and lenses. Take your pick between detachable cat ears or talons, or you can ditch the add-ons for a decidedly more tame look.
So far, Parisian tastemaker go-to boutique Colette is the sole stockist of the unique sunglasses, which cost $320 a pop. Got the loose change? Scope out your options and head over to Revé's online shop here.
