* From Rihanna to Zayn Malik to the Hadids, celebs are going wild over Le Specs
* Iconic designs at surprisingly affordable prices
* Originally founded in 1979 Down Under
Celebrities, athletes and models undoubtedly determine what’s selling and trending in fashion. But not every brand with a celebrity co-sign will charge you based on hype or be annoyingly limited. In fact, Australian eyewear maker Le Specs has been doing just the opposite of that since 1979.
With a celebrity cult following that includes the Kardashians, Jenners, Hadids, the Knowles sisters, as well as Rihanna, Kate Moss and Lady Gaga, Le Specs has been the celebrity and non-celeb go-to for an accessory that rivals the collecting habits of sneakerheads. Their covet-worthy eyewear collections range from classic designs to funky makeovers.
We’ve picked four styles that both guys and gals will enjoy.
1. Le Specs HalfMoon Magic
A perennial favorite of Olivia Palermo and seen here on Kate Moss, the Halfmoon Magic are a slightly angled cat eye pair of shades in “timeless black.”
2. Le Specs No Smirking
Seen here on Niall Horan of One Direction fame, the No Smirking is a unisex design that always comes with mirrored lenses anchoring the rounded, tortoiseshell frames.
3. Le Specs Cousteau
These are the least boring aviators you’ll find and the Cousteau’s unisex design is ideal for those who have partners that tend to “borrow” their shades. The blue-tinted lenses and tortoiseshell print add visual appeal.
4. Le Specs La Habana
The angular design of the La Habana matched with the double-bridge make for one fiercely aggressive pair of shades. The oversized and polarized lenses make it ideal for both sexes as well, while the futuristic design makes these sunglasses a strong style statement no matter where you’re sporting them.
