There is nothing in life we appreciate over more than super smooth, couture, limited edition fashion and accessories. Especially when involving an edgy, sophisticated, cool that reminds us how ‘special’, ‘one of a kind’ and ‘super exclusive’ we are. Add sustainability (we love that), and polymers we can pronounce and we’re sold.
With this damned heat, sun and Indian Summer we’re all experience we need shades 24/7. Unfortunately most are cheap, break and last about 5 minutes.
But…what if, you could have the James Bond of shades? Durable, almost unbreakable and made by some cool scientists in Philadelphia who decided durability and design were the ‘cool’ new thing to do.
I spoke with one of the co-founders, a young genius, Joseph Wang over the phone and this is what I learned. Three incredible young men came together with a vision, some scientific knowledge and a goddamn great idea. Cody, Eric and Joe decided to create and amazing line of sunglasses, named Barring Eyewear, and succeeded. Each one named after a neighborhood in their hometown they have created a sustainable, and slightly invincible product.
Superior, above par, hand-made and packed, they created and started selling Barring eyewear. Their customer? Someone who was looking for something a little more beautiful and durable than the average shade. In doing so their project has soared to greater heights. Not just in their current market, but as a multi-level, superior product.
Let’s talk science, because you need to know how bad ass these are….
Manufactured with high-grade, tri-acetate cellulose (TAC), every lens features TAC polarization, wrinkle protection technology, scratch & shatter resistant layers, and provides 100% UV protection from UVA and UVB rays. Polarized and Category 3, UV protection, this combination provides crisp vision and eliminates glare. All of their lenses are FDA approved and exceed European Union standards.
Want? Yes. Need? Yes, Please! Because it get’s better.
All frames come with a branded wooden case or branded sunglasses case (NOIR glasses), a microfiber wipe, and a dual draw string micro-fiber travel bag, making it a great for you and/or a loved one.
As if the beautiful packing, product and scratch resistant lenses weren’t enough to sell me, they offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY!!
Barring Eyewear also gives back.
In 2014 due to an unfortunate loss of a family member, the owners of Barring Eyewear decided to start donating to charity. They are donating $1 of every sale to Cancer Research. You know how much I admire and adore promoting companies that give back. Barring is not a just superior in product, but attitude as well.

Let’s go over how ‘cool’ Barring is again, shall we?
Barring Eyewear is handmade, scratch resistant, polymer rich, sustainable and charitable. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving.
If you want to order yours click the glasses below and it will take you to their main store where you can order yours.
Now for the semi-bad news. They are so damn hot on the market right now they are selling out. Pre-sale selling out. There are only 200 of each Barring Eyewear item made, making these ULTRA Exclusive. We love exclusive but it makes things a little harder to get. Especially as we go into the gift-giving Holiday months.
If the glasses you want ARE sold out you can PRE-ORDER yours by going to their Indie Gogo site below.

Thank god for Style.com and their runway reporting. They report every collection, designer and runway worldwide and those of us in the industry would be lost without them. Especially when we are on the wrong side of the country during NYFW. But business is business and while I hustle and shake in LA (new products, events and interviews coming up) I still have my eye on Fashion Week’s around the…
Yes I have been missing and yes I am still in California suffering the wrath and indignity of NOT being at NYFW. Actually I am gearing up for LAFW because there is a lot I am involved in and have to stay West Coast bound.
Since you, dear reader, aren’t there either but are most definitely craving the feel, insanity and sore feet, I give you;
Growing up Joan Rivers was always there. On TV as a comedienne, on The Muppets with Miss Piggy and fighting the good fight with the Fashion Police. Never once did she not appreciate the funny things and people in life. Always stellar, a star and an inspiration Joan Rivers is indeed, the definition of Comedy itself.
Sadly today we lost Joan Rivers at 81. Surrounded by friends and family she left…
