Isson – Bauhaus Portraits

Isson is an Australian sunglass brand, founded by Catherine Federici. I first read about Isson in DumboFeather, and have always admired their avant-garde styles.  Recently, when doing some picture research on Bauhaus, I came across these wonderfully styled shots:

The Bauhaus collection was shot by Cybele Malinowski, and based around the idea of four eccentric characters who may have attended the school of Bauhaus in 1934. Read more about the different personas here. My favourite is the Alberta Albers image – I think it’s a combinaion of the turban, the chunky jewellery, and the vivacity of that little pug face.

As for the sunglasses – I would love to buy a pair of steam punk inspired Marthas – in tortoiseshell. Nice work, Isson.

Gotta Put On Shades Because The Future’s So Bright

Designer Karen Walker has just released her summer 11/12 eye wear range. And as always, the frames are bright, a bit nutty and immensely covetable. From top to bottom: Betty, Soul Club, Keep The Faith, Fight On in wood, Fight On in tortoise, and the multifaceted Vava. Isn’t the pattern detail cute?

When it comes to sunglasses, I adore mad, oversized shapes – and KW has absolutely nailed it with this collection.  Can’t wait to see these bunny faces out on the street!
