COLAB Eyewear Vs Geoff McFetridge
Posted on June 15, 2012 by Rex
COLAB’s new collab. Get it? Witty.
When making my COLAB/collab joke it occurred to me perhaps that was the point, and I’d previously missed it. I was right. COLAB teams up with illustrators, musicians, artists and other gangstas to take each collection of eyewear in a new direction.
Every release is limited to 1000 pieces world wide and are individually sequenced out of 1000, just like an art print. WHY DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS? You can imagine my horror when I picked up my House of Holland x Le Specs and saw a million other skanks wearing them. Yeah. The horror. Rest assured, you won’t have this issue with COLAB.
The original of these CORBU sunnies were the vision of Geoff McFetridge, behind work for the likes of Prius, Nike, Pepsi – whatevers.. You get it. The original champagne colour broke COLAB record selling time. You’ve seen copies of this shape, and you’ve probably bought them from a prominent Australian ladies chain *shifty eyes* but it’s time for the real deal, the attention to detail and everything that has turned the COLAB CORBU to cult collectable status.
The new frame feature fresh poetry on the inner arms that read “Poems that hate painting that hate music that hates architecture that hates graphics”.
Cop a pair here quickly, before they sell out and you’re stuck with the flimsy wannabes.
