Future looks for Spring/Summer 2011

Rad Hourani likes to keep his styles unisex, and so are his sunglasses for Spring/Summer of next year. With matte black frames and black lenses, they manage to retain a semblance of subtlety despite their bold retro-futuristic styling. They’ll cost you $500 but won’t be available till next spring.
