Wearable. Art.</h2> <p> Once a year, Sunglass Hut commissions a renowned artist to design a limited-edition collection of eyewear. <br/> Although there are no styles currently available, the Artist Series will return with unique creations once again this fall. <br/> Stay tuned for the next collection and take a look back at previous designs while you wait. <br/> <!-- <a href="/Experience?storeId=10152&catalogId=10101&experienceName=artistseries" >See the Current Artist</a> --> </p> </div> <div class="asall-body"> <div class="asall-price"> <img src="/wcsstore/SGH/experiences/artistseries-all/images/asall_price.jpg" /> <div class="asall-text asall-right"> <img src="/wcsstore/SGH/experiences/artistseries-all/images/asall_v.png" alt="V" /> <h3>Haus of Price</h3> <em>2012</em> <p> James Price, owner and designer at Haus of Price, put his mark on the Sunglass Hut Artist Series V with a dazzling collection of sunglasses. 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.</p> <a href="#JS" class="asall-play-video">Play Video</a> </div> <div class="asall-video-wrapper"> <div class="asall-video"> <a href="#js" class="asall-close-modal">Close</a> <!-- TODO: Update this youtube URL --> <iframe width="700" height="394" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> <div class="asall-knitta"> <hr /> <div class="asall-text asall-left"> <img src="/wcsstore/SGH/experiences/artistseries-all/images/asall_iv.png" alt="IV" /> <h3>Knitta</h3> <em>2011</em> <p> 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.</p> <a href="#JS" class="asall-play-video">Play Video</a> </div> <img src="/wcsstore/SGH/experiences/artistseries-all/images/asall_knitta.jpg" /> <div class="asall-video-wrapper"> <div class="asall-video"> <a href="#js" class="asall-close-modal">Close</a> <!-- TODO: Update this youtube URL --> <iframe width="700" height="394" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> <div class="asall-ming"> <img src="/wcsstore/SGH/experiences/artistseries-all/images/asall_ming.jpg" /> <div class="asall-text asall-right"> <img src="/wcsstore/SGH/experiences/artistseries-all/images/asall_iii.png" alt="III" /> <h3>Michael Ming</h3> <em>2010</em> <p>Brooklyn-based artist Mike Ming brought his iconic, graffiti-like style to his collection. Ming's inspiration comes from his urban surroundings and his love of surfing. 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. </p> <a href="#JS" class="asall-play-video">Play Video</a> </div> <div class="asall-video-wrapper"> <div class="asall-video" class="asall-play-video"> <a href="#js" class="asall-close-modal">Close</a> <iframe width="700" height="394" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> <hr /> </div> <div class="asall-maya"> <hr /> <div class="asall-text asall-left"> <img src="/wcsstore/SGH/experiences/artistseries-all/images/asall_ii.png" alt="II" /> <h3>Maya Hayuk</h3> <em>2008</em> <p>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.</p> <a href="#JS" class="asall-play-video">Play Video</a> </div> <img src="/wcsstore/SGH/experiences/artistseries-all/images/asall_maya.jpg" /> <div class="asall-video-wrapper"> <div class="asall-video"> <a href="#js" class="asall-close-modal">Close</a> <iframe width="700" height="394" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> <div class="asall-mendoza"> <hr /> <img src="/wcsstore/SGH/experiences/artistseries-all/images/asall_mendoza.jpg" /> <div class="asall-text asall-right"> <img src="/wcsstore/SGH/experiences/artistseries-all/images/asall_i.png" alt="I" /> <h3>Chris Mendoza</h3> <em>2007</em> <p>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.</p> </div> <hr /> </div> </div> <div class="asall-bottom"> <h3>About the Sunglass Hut Artist Series</h3> <p>Sunglass Hut began the Artist Series in 2007 as a way to promote new artists, bring rare pieces into our store, and support our community. Each year, we commission one of the most inspiring, avant-garde artists of the time to design their own limited-edition collection of eyewear. No two pairs of sunglasses will ever be the same as they're created &mdash; painted, jeweled, even covered with yarn &mdash; by the artists themselves. The Artist Series is your chance to own an exclusive piece of wearable art.</p> <strong>The artist series is your chance to own an exclusive piece of wearable art.</strong> </div> </div></div><!-- .aspl-page --> <!-- <script src="js/artist_series_all.js"></script> --><!-- END DELIVERY -->
