Eyewear Design: *W/SÜN*

Summer is here, so let’s zoom again on WFTS – Waiting For The Sun – the French sunglasses brand, which is actually an innovative concept of contemporary eyewear design. Three friends teamed up in 2007 and launched a line of wooden sunglasses, conceived to impact on the price tag at no more than €150! …Not bad at all, considering that WFTS‘s models are entirely handmade, framing Carl Zeiss quality lens.

Read DOY’s older post here  to know more about such a vintage charming brand, fusing the Californian summery appeal with the sophisticate Paris style, and give a look to the slideshow below to unveil part of the S/S 2012 collection:

Each pair of glasses comes in a recycled cardboard packaging and wrapped in a limited edition foulard, exclusively signed by a contemporary artist.

Fashion Design: *W/SÜN*

Waiting for the Sun is no longer just the title of an old Doors’s song, but also the name of a new French eyewear fashion design brand you’ll love. 

All started about 2 years ago when Alexandre Rabineau (the architect &designer), Antoine Mocquard (the business man) and  Julien Tual (the artist/graphic guy) decided to share their passion for design, fashion and innovation.

Now launching a handmade eco-friendly wooden sunglasses collection, W/SÜN  Waiting for the Sun http://www.waitingforthesun.fr/ is pointing out a new trend for a dynamic lifestyle.  A mix inspired to vintage Californian easy wear and French taste for details. The result?  Urban, chic and casual.

So, if you’ve never tried on a pair of Bamboo or Tea Tree sunglasses, it’s time to go for it!
