Ever wonder how one could possibly have avant-garde eyes? Watching a Lady Gaga music video, one gets ideas for how to make eyewear stunningly chic and impractical. House of Diehl is an optics label that aims to make eyewear devastatingly fashion-forward and bold. House of Diehl is a New York-based collaboration between designers Mary Jo Diehl and Roman Milišić. Their sunglasses vary in aesthetic and style, and each pair is a take on the classic Ray-Ban Wayfarer shape; with every combination of color, decoration, shade, and size, House of Diehl offers sunglasses for every trendsetter regardless of whether one favors grunge, glamour, costume, eighties, or goth.
Though the glasses are not always pragmatic (featuring add-ons such as glass mirrors, holes, sequins, and paint), the ingenuity of the brand gives wearers the ability to be fashion-forward and easily become a staple of any fashion-lover’s wardrobe. Some particular favorites are the purple Wayfarers covered in shards of mirrors, as well as the white-on-white ombre pair which add a chic twist to everyday glasses. Another incredible pair is the classic black Wayfarer studded with holes and chained through the lenses. Though one might stumble occasionally due to lack of total vision, these sunglasses are worth every inconvenience; one becomes irrevocably chic, bold, and fashion-forward.
