NBA Playoff Glasses

The NBA playoffs are getting pretty intense right now, some of the Spectacle team find it amusing to take their minds of the actual games for a minute or two and check out the eyewear that's being sported

Call it an occupational hazard,(you should see what happens if more then one of us are at a movie theater together) so far we have had pretty good luck with the coaches and their respective frames, take a look.....


Phil Jackson is looking very chic in his Oliver Peoples Rileys



Since Phil never has just one of anything(I.E. championship rings) here he is sporting a second look with some Lindbergs



Mike Brown also rocks Lindbergs, although from their acetate collection. Hope it helps his golf game.



Alvin Gentry appears to be wearing some Mikli's, someones got high class taste.



Doc Rivers, well he just wears contacts, we sell those too, and they are still better then whatever the heck Amare has on his head.





Remember eyewear fans, there are plenty of fun to be had at the NBA playoffs besides the games being played.

Spectacle Night Out Pix

When the Spectacle crew decide to get together for a night out its more then just your regular high class soiree.

This one involved three reps, James aka "Mr Chrome Hearts", Anthony from Eye DC, and Darrin the Dita man, a bunch of friends and family and a hang over that lasted a couple of days or so.

Thanks to Tom and the staff at Nyood for the amazing food, the DSquared twins for being the second best dressed party in the room and Grey Goose for the blurry/out of focus photos.

Wish you were here, Spectacle Loves You........................

Spectacle Loves The New Cutler and Gross Collection

Cutler and Gross just released their newest collection.

They are going with a 30's theme this season as stated in their press release

SPIRIT OF LEMPICKA
Cutler and Gross Autumn/Winter 2010 Collection is
inspired by the 1930’s
fashionable painter Tamara de Lempicka. The creative
team at Cutler and
Gross loves her use of strong colours and the way she
‘lit’ her subjects
and herself, which is a form of ‘soft’ and ‘synthetic’
Cubism that summed
up the fashionable and the sensual side of the Art Deco
movement in the
1930’s.
The strong silhouette of the models in green, red,
purple and black create a
great contrast against the depressed 30’s
industrial buildings of New York
which is a recurring theme through out our
campaign.
The new collection reflects the mood and style of the period;
Precise and
sensual in feel and texture. Here, mixing metal with acetate,
curving and
streamlining to recreate the utmost luxurious glasses with the
Art Deco
essence and in the true spirit of Lempicka.
Key colours for
women; gold with fire orange, bakelite blue and ruby red
set the
tone..
For men; ocean blue with silver metal, Deco brown laminated with
crème
acetate and of course the classic and favourite blacks are here to
stay.

We dont care what decade these things come from they are just hot, take a look.
