Jay McCarroll and his sunglasses

 Season One Project Runway winner Jay McCarroll was known throughout the season for his flamboyant style which included his choice in eyewear, especially his sunglasses which have become a regular signature to his ever-evolving look.

If you haven’t popped by his website, the colony, you might wanna check out what the designer has been up to of late. Personally, I love his line of sunglasses he offers. Logo-less, brand-free, and every style is just $22. At that price, you can have as many styles as the designer himself!

 “Style 93” (shown here in green) remind me a lot of some of Balenciaga’s more recent sunglasses silhouettes, and are certainly a more friendly price tag. Also in White, Black and Burnt.

 “Big O” are really yummy and summery in white,  I think they’re so cute. Also available in Black.

 “Chromatic Moo” allows a bit of Jay’s humor to find expression here, but as an owner of pants made of cow-print jersey, I think the fashion joke is a fun one. Other colors include Heidi Gold (named for the show’s spokesmodel perhaps?), Chromatic Silver, and Chromatic Wild (think ‘leopard print’).

 “Style 52” looks really sharp in red, with the two toned look. This style in the color “Mix” looks like tortoise shell, and color “Transparent” resembles other designers’ frame color known as “Smoke.”

 “Style 74” rounds out the collection and reminds me of some of Dior’s recent looks. Besides Black, you can also land this one in Red, and White.

  1. They make me wish I didn’t look goofy in big sun glasses. They always make me feel like a stylish bug. I like the Chromatic Moo.

    • I get that way too, but then I try to get over my self consciousness because the look is so cool on others I figure I just need to get used to seeing it on me.
