She is a fashion designer, entrepreneur, socialite and style icon. Born and raised in New York City, Olivia Palermo is one of the pioneers of street style, known for her classic, yet modern fashion sensibility. Now, she finds herself collaborating with Westward Leaning for a new and fresh sunglasses collection for the spring/summer season.
The collaboration features 13 sunglasses comprised of 4 entirely new frame shapes designed by Palermo. This has also been Westward Leaning’s first time introducing new shapes into the brand.
Many of the frames include never before used metals, biodegradable plant-based acetates, and custom two-tone colour combinations, the latter of which were important for the foundation of her creative vision.
“We have never used most of these materials before: the colorways, lenses, and acetates; the metal finishes and manufacturing techniques were sourced and developed, respectively, to meet the design wishes of Olivia and her vision.
This is the next-level version of what we have done as a company to date when it comes to producing universally-flattering, truly special sunglasses for our customers.” Robert Denning, Westward Leaning Co-Founder said .
Also, 10% of the net profits from this collaboration will be donated to Dress For Success, an organisation whose mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence. Palermo started working with Dress For Success as she wanted to give back to a non-profit that she was passionate about.
Palermo has been rocking the sunglasses from the collection all fashion month, in New York, Paris, Milan and London. But the line just became available yesterday for the public. Check out here pics of Olivia Palermo showing the sunglasses during the different Fashion Weeks:
