Using his iconic gemstone style, Price bejeweled 25 Vogue frames for an exclusive collection that radiated light. Haus of Price is best known for extravagant, gemstone-covered shoes, which reflect the designer's love of '80s glam and Old Hollywood elegance, and adorn the feet of today's brightest pop stars.Play Video
Internationally renowned knit graffiti artist Magda Sayeg spun colorful threads around designer frames to create a collection unlike any we'd ever seen. Sayeg, who founded Knitta, stumbled into knit graffiti simply by knitting a cozy for her door handle. Soon, she was knitting street art, followed by commissioned projects that included wrapping yarn around buses, statues, and sunglasses.Play Video

His work is defined by bold colors and fluid graphics, making the pieces he creates instantly recognizable. Ming hand-painted his collection of sunglasses in our store, bringing a more personal aspect to the Series and highlighting his incredible talent.Play Video
Ukrainian-American artist Maya Hayuk draws inspiration from Ukrainian folk art and crafts. She painted vibrant patterns and designs onto already bright Ray-Ban Wayfarers for an eye-catching collection. Hayuk's work can be found in many media, though she's best known for her murals and installations. She often collaborates with other artists to bring her colorful style to galleries, printed and electronic material, and the streets.Play Video
In our first Artist Series, NYC-based painter Chris Mendoza put his precision lines and contemporary style onto 100 Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Originally from Nicaragua, Mendoza's work reflects his experiences in his native country, as well as those from his life in New York and Miami. The architectural draftsmanship he learned from his father is seen in the lines and angles in his work. Other consistent elements include graffiti lettering and folklore.
