Clearly, our perpetually sunny city can't get enough of stylish (and award-winning!) specs. The latest peeper protectors to be produced by LA-based talent is Lura Eyewear, which just released its debut line of fashionable frames.
These aren't your basic minimalist summer sunnies—in addition to being handcrafted in Italy and made with photog-friendly Carl Zeiss lenses, the brand's all-black frames are tricked out with statement-making 24k gold and sterling silver accents. If you're not digging the blingy, brow-raised look for your blinkers, each pair ($225 to $295) can be customized sans the gold bars. After the jump, take a peek at another lookbook shot and shop the line here.
