Eyegoodies is proud to welcome Spektre Sunglasses to the site!
Modern, playful, and chic, are just a few of the words that describe Italian eyewear maker Spektre Sunglasses. The truth is, Spektre is all of those things carefully measured in perfect combination.
Founded in 2009, Milan based Spektre has fast become internationally renowned for their fashion forward designs, which blend high fashion and street style seamlessly. Particularly impressive to us, is how distinct and instantly recognizable each design is; and how even the most experimental sunglass always remains so easily wearable.
With its special attention to innovation, design, details, materials, and colors, it’s no surprise that models and street stylists alike gravitate to the independent brand. All frames are proudly handmade in Italy, with Spektre overseeing the entire production process.
The new Spring Summer 2017 collection continues in Spektre’s tradition of bold, sleek, innovative shapes. Colorways range from black juxtaposed with vibrant blue mirrored flat based lenses, giving way to hues of silver, and this season staple of beautiful rose gold mirror lenses.
Without further delay, check out the new collection, along with some of our core Spektre favorites:
Dolce Vita (Italian for “the good life”) is a unisex squared off aviator with a unique arching double bridge, flat (base 2) lenses, and subtle detailing.
Spektre’s Off Shore Doppio is a sleek and contemporary cat eye sunglass which compliments any face shape. It features clean lines with a double bridge, flat (base 2) mirror lenses, and is available in assortment of stunning colorways.
Ultra-contemporary, yet timelessly chic, the Spektre’s MET-RO 2 fits almost anyone who puts it on extremely well (man or woman). Weighing in at just 20 grams, they boast feather lightweight metal and acetate construction, providing all day comfort. Other distinctive features include rounded lenses encased in acetate connected by its signature arching wire bridge.
The Metro 2 Flat takes the fan favorite Metro 2 and updates it with Flat (Zero base) mirrored lenses.
Domina is a classically inspired aviator shape, but super-sized and topped off with flat lenses for added appeal. Oh and did we mention the beautiful gold with rose gold mirror colorway.
The Spektre Vanni is a classically inspired unisex round design. It features stainless steel construction with its lenses encased in complimentary Italian acetate, and is finished with mirrored lenses giving it more of a contemporary feel.
Spektre Coral has its 70’s appeal futurized with a one of a kind detailed metal structure and sleek cutouts around the lenses. And giving it the finishing touch are gradient mirrored lenses.
When it’s Woman Crush Wednesday and you get to do a whole blog post dedicated to your woman crush every day…
Gigi Hadid is a goddess in her prime. We literally see her everywhere: when we’re walking in the mall and she is featured on the storefront (Tommy Hilfiger, Guess, etc.), when it’s fashion week and she is strutting down the runway, and even when we’re casually stalking her on social media because let’s face it, she’s bae. A one-of-a-kind model with style that is unmatched, Gigi Hadid knows what’s in and right now it’s the era of the round sunnies.
Bomber jacket, leather pants and ankle boots, while it is all a part of Hadid’s insanely dope street style, what completes the look is her pair of round sunglasses.
She spins our head right round right round with her street style from Paris Fashion Week: striped pants, sleeveless top, leather jacket and of course: round sunnies.
Also from Paris Fashion Week, Gigi Hadid was spotted with Karlie Kloss leaving the Mugler show in a floral outfit with round sunglasses.
We’re living in a generation where our favorite things are making a comeback, from chokers to jumpsuits and now, round sunglasses. It’s a trend we can get behind, especially when models like Gigi Hadid can rock them with pure style and grace.

Flipping out for Garrett Leight x Mark McNairy’s newest flip-clip collab, the Valdese.
Following the success of past collaborations together, Garrett Leight California Optical and American menswear designer Mark McNairy are back at it, with a fresh limited edition frame for 2017.
Presenting the Valdese, a mid-century military inspired design with a removable flip-up clip. There’s distinctive detailing throughout the entire frame, down to the pins — lightning bolt front pins with McNairys signature “TCMB” (“Taking Care of Motherf*cking Business”) acronym. Additionally the inner temple bares “Veni Vidi Vici” (Latin for “I came, I saw, I conquered”) and “Garrett Leight for Mark McNairy”.
Worth emphasizing, the clips not only can flip-up, but can also be easily removed. Allowing it to also be worn as a pure optical frame.
The Valdese is available in three colorways: “Alpha” (Bone), “Bravo” (Grey Crystal), “Charlie” (Brandy Tortoise). Each comes paired with a distinctive gradient mirror clip-on flip lenses. And to top it off, every frame comes complete with a special edition box, hard clam case, and carrying pouch.
