The whole idea behind this collaboration is fantastic to me. I love that it's branding a name that has just launched, Alfred Julius, with an eyewear company that looks at the bigger picture. Activist Eyewear isn't only just about making sunglasses but are about making sunglasses fit for you. They have crafted form fitting technology which they call Split Fit (so that you don't feel the weight of your sunglasses just on your ears or the bone behind your ear) and they also custom design nose pads (each frame has a different type of padding for the right amount of softness and grip). They also take in consideration of your glasses being well kept. Their case is made of waxed canvas and "with a double-snap closure and a neoprene gasket to seal out dirt..." (activisteyewear.com) and their microfiber handkerchiefs are not only meant for keeping your glasses clean but also your pockets colorful and bright. Now with this collaboration your neck can get in on the fun with a funky bow tie.
I'll be honest I'm in TOTAL love with this man in the lookbook. If I saw him sitting across from me on the train I would def. stare at him...because I'm a creeper like that and I love well dressed people....I'm also in love with the Walkabout frames (second picture on the right)! The lens are out of this world. It's a nice twist on your usual aviators.
