INTERNET’S FAVE DGAF GRANDMA

Social media superstar Baddie Winkle has been stealing your man since 1928, and now she’s purloining the “lewks” of pop culture’s most recognizable faces. Not that her own style isn’t badass enough as is — the trillest grandma on the twerking team dabbles in tie-dye, crop tops, and embellished power brows — but the inaugural #OriginalGrit campaign by Grit Creative proves this octogenarian is a true style chameleon. The Danielle Levitt-lensed portrait series is being released to launch Grit’s new website, and features Baddie giving all realness and zero fucks as iconic creatives Kate Moss, Kurt Cobain, and Michèle Lamy. Her oversized version of Cobain’s notorious Christian Roth sunglasses are even more killer than her hater shades, and her Lamy interpretation is so far from basic it can’t even see the line.

ASHER EDELMAN

Christian Roth Eyewear's dear friend, art collector and investor Asher Edelman with his favourite Christian Roth's spectacle. Christian Roth Eyewear
Our dear and fascinating friend Asher Edelman spotted in his favorite Christian Roth spectacles : “It takes Bud Fox 59 calls to get through to Gordon Gekko. Fortunately, I am on the phone to the real Gekko in just one. Like Fox, I am feeling a bit nervous about this. After all, speaking to a man who helped inspire one of the greatest anti-heroes in movie history – the character who tarnished the image of Wall Street with one famous line – could be tough. I wonder what his opening salvo will be: “Lunch is for wimps,” perhaps, “It’s a dog with fleas,” maybe or how about the notorious “Greed is good?” read more. photo by Michael Hörner

CHRISTIAN ROTH AT LAX

Architecture is a great source of inspiration for our work as eyewear designers. When we edited the pictures from Formento+Formento, and realized that they shot part of the new campaign in front of one of our favorite buildings, we were ecstatic! The Theme Building is an iconic landmark structure at the Los Angeles International Airport. It opened in 1961, and it is an example of the Mid-Century modern influenced design school known as “Googie” or “Populuxe.” The distinctive white building resembles a flying saucer that has landed on its four legs. The initial design of the building was created by James Langenheim, of Pereira & Luckman. “Fly Girl” sunglasses were named prior to Formento+Formento taking this photograph, it all made so much sense – “Fly Girl” was predestinated to be associate with the Theme Building!

THE AFFAIR

The iconic Optical Affairs “Series A” is coming back in Spring/Summer of 2015 with a capsule collaboration between Barton Perreira and Christian Roth. “Creating The Affair with Christian and Eric has been a dream, their work has always inspired me. I wanted to combine my own DNA with their iconic design and re-present it in a new distinct spirit.” – Patty Perreira. The design is both retro and futuristic, a dichotomy designer Patty Perreira is famous for integrating into her collections. Taking cues from Christian Roth’s original design, Perreira designed a rimless frame emboldened by a gold brow-bar that stretches from temple to temple. Each frame in the limited edition is numbered to ensure that this is an Affair to remember. Slated to be released at MIDO 2015 Eyewear Show in Milano.

RHAPSODY IN BLUE

Rhapsody in Blue – one of the new Christian Roth Sunglasses Fall/Winter 2015 in bruised denim and genuine reptile skin. Christian Roth

Nothing reflects fashion’s laid-back new narrative like the ocean of bruised and battered denim. Even ladylike designs – re-imagined in frayed and faded blues – discover a rugged, street-smart swagger. Executed in patchwork, the genuine rough brown reptile skin juxtaposed with denim, meticulously handcrafted and applied on Christian Roth’s glam shades. One of the up-coming season’s stunners!
