Spectacle + Donovan Bailey x KVA

Recently Olympic Gold medalist and national hero Donovan "The Worlds Fastest Man" Bailey stopped by the Queen St shop for an eye exam, and to peruse our fine selection of cutting edge eye and sun wear.

For those of you too young to remember Donvoan on the track here is a photo to jog your memory, ha ha ha

After trying out a couple of different looks Donovan settled on the Oliver Peoples KVA designed in tandem with Kris Van Assche. Here's the write up on them straight from the people at OP

KVA is a collaboration with European Designer Kris Van Assche, who is now the Artistic Director for Dior Homme. The frame is hand-crafted in thick polished plastic and is just as sophisticated as it is sporty. Unique technology includes a coin-edge mechanism that allows for changeable lenses (two different lens colors are included), offering the wearer greater opportunity to define his personal style. Metal inlay with the KVA logo is detailed on the top of the frame front.

And here is Donovan looking pretty cool with his little slice of Spectacle style and Darren (the worlds slowest white boy) looking pretty wide eyed with suprise

We may never be able to catch up to you Donovan but Spectacle still loves you
