The newly-released Mayfourteenth Spring/Summer 2011 collection of sunglasses features four new frames in patterned hues ranging from marbled rose to yellow tortoise shell and blue snakeskin. As with previous collections, each piece in the line from local photographer Benjamin Belsky continues to be handmade using vintage Mazzucchelli acetate and fitted with optical quality CR-39 lenses.
Our very-visual, (almost) chatter-free snap judgment of the day: Mayfourteenth keeps the funky and fresh feminine with its new limited edition Risa frame ($220), handcrafted from vintage Mazzucchelli acetate. A limited run of only 50 pairs means you may want to hurry and nab yours while they last.
Here’s your chance to dig into a summer essential from a local, independent source: starting today and running through July 14, Lower Haight pop-up shop Guns and Shades will be offering the launch collection of vintage-inspired eyewear from San Francisco brand Mayfourteenth, as well as a serious assortment of rare deadstock vintage frames from Gucci, Givenchy, Cazal and others.
It’s the week of our absolute favorite holiday of the year. Things will be quieter in San Francisco fashion land until we’ve gorged ourselves on Thursday, but then there’s much to do. You’ll find us blurbing a few of our favorite events here and complete details, as always, on the SF Indie Fashion Calendar.
