From Band of Outsiders’ look book to Beyonce’s rockin’ street style, Illesteva’s stylish specs are popping up everywhere (and the sun isn’t the sole reason for their perpetual presence). The young brand’s new model, the Albert frames, which are charmingly inspired by the 1970’s French comedy “La Cage aux Folles,” are surely to maintain the popularity their sibling frames induced. All frames–including these rather uniquely shaped pairs–are handmade in Italy, France and Germany out of novel materials like acetate, bamboo, titanium and natural buffalo horn. The Albert Model–hailing from France–is crafted from italian Acetate and is available in red stone and tortoise.
To snag a pair, which retails for $280, head to illesteva.com.
