Truly Inspired Fendi Sunglasses

While one cannot always predetermine what will inspire them, we take our hats off to the woman who served as an inspiration to the designers at Fendi for the Spring 2012 season. Ready to hear about these truly inspired Fendi Sunglasses and clothing?

Rita Levi-Montalcini is a 102-year Italian neurologist who won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1986. And she is the unlikely inspiration collection spring / summer 2012 from Fendi.

Rita’s life is quite the story and I encourage you to look her up. Smart, ambitious, elegant and certainly feisty, she certainly deserves an entire line of clothing inspired by her achievements and ‘never-say-die’ attitude and…fortitude.

Truly Inspired Fendi Sunglasses

Showing just a slight tint of color, these Fendi Sunglasses still make quite a statement.  As EyeWearDaily.com put it:

…And if it once was in tune on this collection, nothing could be more interesting than the frameless sunglasses inside a sport-chic minimalist style, embellished by the reflection of gold leaf covering the eye lids. (more here)

Minimalist….that’s the word I was looking for! However, there is nothing minimal about the great lady that inspired this collection and these tremendous sunglasses.  Rita Levi-Montalcini, along with two fellow scientists,  won the 1986 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine and later she went on to win the National Medal of Science, which happens to be the highest American scientific honor. There’s more…but I don’t want to bore you!

Now are you really impressed with these truly inspired Fendi Sunglasses, or are you a bit intimidated? Don’t let that stop you from sporting a pair of your own. These are really unique and beautiful, so try on a pair when you get the chance. Really, it’s the smart thing to do!


New Fendi Drip-Wear

Borderline art and fashion, whose lines are almost always blurred in the world of haute couture, lies the 2011 spring/summer collection of Fendi sunglasses. The color, the texture, the shape! They all scream eccentric and edgy, retro yet modern – which would explain why they had a waiting list in almost every Fendi store even before the product hit the market, and probably still do.

Leave it to sunglass mogul Marchon Eyewear, and Karl Lagerfeld (best known for helming the Chanel label) to come up with a look so colorful, it’s almost like this season exploded in a kaleidescope of color and landed on your face. Remember the old Skittles commercials, “Taste the rainbow?”

There are tortoise and purple blends (pictured below), and lemon and black mixes. Specs that transform from brown to pink and blue to orange (to the right), all while maintaining a classy, empowering statement of concomitant youth.
