Martin may have abandoned Margiela a few years back, but the Belgian fashion house has had no difficulty maintaining the brand's leftfield credentials in el hefe's absence.
The product of a collaborative project with British eyewear innovators Cutler and Gross, Margiela's new sunglasses range is as subtly off-key as we had hoped. The collection, titled "8", consists of two styles - the oversized "Anatomic", which envelope your entire field of vision (much the same as a fly), and "Wrong Size", which feature a pair of seemingly ill-fitting lenses within oversized frames.
Though sunglasses season may be all but over, we're pretty sure "Anatomic" will look just as good on the slopes as on the riviera, so see them as an investment. As we did.
