Shades Designed by Beck

Posted February 27th, 2012 by Eric Greenwood · No Comments

What’s Beck been up to the past few years besides not making new records? Designing sunglasses for Oliver Peoples, of course. Amazingly, these frames have been in development for two years with Beck being “very involved” in the process. Beck drew inspiration from his personal collection of dead stock 80’s sunglasses, which is why they look like the junk you would find at a surf shop in Myrtle Beach. The resulting “Double Helix” frames can be purchased directly from Oliver Peoples for a mere $595. Before you balk at the price, be aware that Beck’s signature is printed on the right temple using the font from Midnite Vultures. How can you not buy them now? [via Stereogum]
