We love sunglasses! We are supporters that add an air to us, I don't know what, that makes us feel much more handsome and beautiful, we would never want to take them off, and having a collection that matches each item of clothing that we have in our closet is like that desire repressed from more than one.
Beyond remembering the practical reason for wearing sunglasses, we know that they are also an accessory that rescues us in more than one hurry, for example: When you are with your friends and you want to look perfect in the group photo, without having to ask them to repeat it, the solution? Your sunglasses. Or you went to a party, you didn't sleep well and your eyes look very tired, wear sunglasses. Or even, you're shy... it's already been proven that sunglasses give those who have trouble speaking in public a confidence boost.
But be careful, there are some mortals from the world of stardom who have found their personal brand in sunglasses. Not necessarily that they have created their own line of glasses, but in a way, imagining this person without sunglasses is almost impossible. They have impregnated him with his personality, character and style so much that sunglasses have even become a reference model. Being so famous, they are recognized for never getting rid of sunglasses, even at night.
But, really, what is behind these characters from the world of cinema, music and entertainment, who find their best ally in glasses. Is it possible for a singer to be shy? Or, that an actor on a red carpet prefers to wear glasses to hide his photo sensitivity to bursts of flashes? Whatever the reasons, these people have NEVER removed their glasses and they must have the glasses collection in their closet.
We at Hanukeii, tell you who are these mysterious or not so mysterious characters that are hidden behind iconic glasses models, and that we hope to see them appearing at events in the future with our Pacific Black or Southcal Green, or maybe you are the next celeb to set the trend with our sunglasses. We'll tell you!
Those who lead the fashion empire and don't read their eyes:
1. Anna Wintour
“Everybody wants to be like us” was one of the famous lines Meryl Streep says in “Devils wear prada” film inspired by the fashion figure and editor of US Vogue magazine.USA:Anna Wintour. The truth is that any fashion lover would envy her work, but we could also imagine that she carries a lot of media pressure on her shoulders, and at some point it has to be exhausting. In the sights of designers, fashion events, trends, everyone knows that the Wintour name has a lot of people after it waiting to be noticed to get into the club.
Few have seen her eyes, it can be a dinner, a covered parade or in her office, Anna Wintour has created a dress code that no one can match. Sunglasses with a thick, square frame in black and a long bob cut is her signature look.
In an interview for CNN, the interviewer, curious to discover who is behind the sunglasses, asked the question that thousands of us ask ourselves, why do you always wear sunglasses? At the time, the editor confessed to having recently had surgery on her eyes and that she was somewhat exhausted, a response that opened a thread, stating that many times sunglasses, beyond being an accessory, are her armor, she hides when she is tired, when she is bored in a parade, and even better, few can know what you are thinking. As a great strategist and player, she knows how to keep the mystery and play, without the competition getting ahead and deciphering her movements. A crack!
His style is iconic, oversized black rectangular glasses that remind us a lot of our Hyde Black.
2. Karl Lagerfeld
51 years of career and never took off his sunglasses. The reason? A jealous boyfriend. When she was at a party with a friend, the girl's boyfriend came to attack Karl by throwing a glass at his eye, luckily that day he had decided to wear his sunglasses that protected him from any of those glasses entering In his gaze. As a designer, his eyes are his best tool and he was aware of always protecting them. That is why he carried his glasses well on, in addition, he confessed that when he had to attend any number of events where he inevitably ran out, he took advantage of the sunglasses for this.We understand you Karl!
Those who are icons in history prefer 'tinted' ones.
3. Robert Downey Jr
Tony Stark, wearing tinted sunglasses, on and off screen. The reason? Although he himself has not revealed it, apparently it is a mere matter of aesthetics and bearing. Robert Downey Jr, feels comfortable with this type of glasses, 70s style, square with orange or pink tinted lenses, which he wears wherever he goes and is such that his alter ego representing Ironman also he wears them. Do they want to tell us something?
Another rockstar on our list who doesn't take his glasses off no matter how dark the night is, is Bono. But in this case, the main reason is not precisely to maintain his artistic identity, the truth is that Bono suffers from a disease called Glaucoma. This disease, which he has suffered from since he was 30 years old, has caused his optic nerve to be affected, even leading to partial loss of vision. That's why sunglasses help to reduce a little the damage that light and flashes cause.
5. Elton John
He doesn't have an iPhone or a computer, according to him, but he does have 250.000 pairs of glasses. From the most ostentatious to one or another pair to be at home. The obsession with glasses is such that, on a tour, he asked to keep his glasses in a hotel room, apart from his, and that they be kept at 16 degrees Celsius.
But hey, the reason the rocketman wears eccentric sunglasses is because they remind him of his childhood idol Buddy Holly. He started copying her style, until he realized that he felt much better wearing glasses, whether they were star-shaped, heart-shaped, square-shaped, etc. It is impossible to think of Elton John without thinking of his glasses and suits, as if he came from another galaxy.
Whereas light is usually her enemy, sunglasses are her best friend.
6. Pedro Almodóvar
This genius of Spanish cinema and international icon of Spanish culture left more than one with their mouths open when gala after gala appeared wearing black sunglasses. There were those who demonized this action, demanding that it show itself as it was, however, its defenders did not take long to make a presence on Twitter, emphasizing something that not everyone expected.
The man from La Mancha, creator of unique cinematographic pieces such as: The Law of Desire, The Skin I Live In and Pain and Glory. Dedicated to being in front of light bulbs and screens, paradoxically, he suffers from migraines due to photophobia. This is a hypersensitivity that some people suffer from strong lights and flashes, such as flashes or studio lights, causing them an ordeal, since it makes it impossible for them to open their eyes fully and that is when migraines and headaches appear mercilessly. However, beyond that, it is an accessory that suits your personality very well. As if he knew that we wanted to enter his mind and know what his next work of art would be.
His style: he prefers sunglasses with square frames, polarized lenses and black, which reminds us of our Free Spirit Black.
7. Risto Mejide
It is rare to see this popular Spanish television presenter without glasses, beyond a purely aesthetic purpose, the Catalan wears glasses for health reasons. He suffers from flat corneas, an anomaly that encourages the appearance of cataracts until it completely obscures his vision. Always opt for XXL glasses for comfort, since they cover you from the light in greater amplitude. In addition, in an interview, he expresses that in part he also likes to wear them, since they hide his face as a good person and he prefers to keep the coldness of his face that the glasses give him.
The ones who love them so much, that they have their own personal line.
8. Lenny Kravitz
Our multi-talented rocker, and we're not saying this about his style of music, but because we don't know of a pair of glasses that don't fit him well. Each model that she uses is directly linked to a stage of her life and way of dressing. Some allude that he was inspired by Jimmy Hendrix, but for us Kravitz has his own style, where sunglasses add 100 points to that rocker image that remains intact despite the years.
At a concert in Los Angeles, he lost his glasses and tweeted about the event, asking the audience to help him find them by creating a dedicated email account to be notified if anyone saw them anywhere... I'm sure they would. The sentimental value that he had for his glasses was enormous, but this action did not go beyond becoming a chain of memes on the network that whoever found them has already had to auction them off.
9. Lou Reed
This article is full of paradoxes or heights, artists who must be exposed to large light sources that cannot even look at them, or singers who must be exposed to countless gazes and who suffer from stage fright... Incredible, isn't it? TRUE?.
In the case of Lou Reed, the lead singer of the band The Velvet Underground suffered from stage fright, and had to wear sunglasses, as they helped him reduce his anxiety when he was on stage. The most incredible thing is that he created his own personal line of sunglasses that today his name is part of a model of glasses, aviator type.
10. Will.Yo am
The member of the band Black Eyed Peas is a lover of design and fashion as well. Since we met him we know that Will.Yoam is a lover of sunglasses, with polarized, tinted, transparent, round, rectangular lenses, yes, they must be XXL and very geometric. For him, sunglasses are a whim, they define his somewhat futuristic and androgynous personality. For this reason, the models he has used are always unisex and technology-oriented.
