The story of Thom Browne 015 – Limited Edition
When Thom Browne presented his menswear collection two summers ago, the fashion world was fascinated. His audacious approach to military-style uniforms was totally unexpected, to say the least. Although looking at his own words, we can quite understand it: “As a designer, I’m supposed to be provoking people’s reactions, and getting people to see things differently. […] That’s the only way things move forward.”
Among all the pieces from his spring-summer 2014 collection, the one that left everyone open-mouthed was his model 015 aviator sunglasses, a limited edition launched both in gold and silver tones. Our favorite is the pair featuring gold frames, gold-mirror lenses, a double bridge with a red piece, and thin temples finished with red, blue and white striped tips, the distinctive colors of the brand. Obviously, they offer 100% UV protection.
To make the hype even bigger, one of Korea’s most famous pop bands, SHINee, appeared on the cover of one of its albums dressed head-to-toe in Thom Browne, 015 shades included. All their fans in Asia went crazy over these sunglasses, converting them into a true mass phenomenon.
Well, if you’re anything like us and still obsessed with these sunnies, you’re in luck because they are still available at OnlyLens. But hurry up, there are only a few pairs left! These shades will be one of your most treasured accessories. Firstly, because everyone should have a great pair of high-quality aviator sunglasses in their wardrobe. Secondly, because any item bearing Thom Browne’s signature is destined to become a coveted classic. You don’t believe us? Just wait and see!
