If you're stepping outside right now and wondering "Why is it so bright out here?" then perhaps its time to invest in a new pair of sunglasses—maybe even a pair of custom couture glasses from Stevie Boi. Celebrity clients such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Santogold, Beyonce, and top model Eva Pigford have been spotted wearing his latest creations.
With heavy duty materials such as steel, wire, studs, and metal spikes, these glasses are definitely not for your regular Sunday-morning-at-the-park. If his pieces are a little too avant garde for your taste, then check out Coco & Breezy and their collection of sunglasses. They take a more wearable approach to their designs with simple gold and silver studs—for just a bit of edge. So if you want to throw tons of shade to your haters this summer be sure to cop a heavy pair of specs. —Getteline Rene
