Back when R29 HQ was in Tribeca, we always had a particular fondness for Harrison Street. Like Crosby, Perry, and lower Orchard streets, there's something magical about that stretch of downtown pavement. Turns out we weren't alone in our affinity for the roadway — NYC-based shade co. Illesteva (our former Tribeca neighbor!) has just debuted a collection of four have-to-have shades fittingly dubbed "The Harrison."
Handmade in France, the unisex luxury frames are what New York City sunglasses should look like — street-style savvy, timeless, but not staid, and so everyday. Whether you're looking to shield your peepers from the winter sun or need a pair of prescription glasses, the quad of options — rich tortoise, slick safari, translucent brown, and a fashion-forward two-tone — are so cool you'll want to collect 'em all (even if the price-tag isn't totally wallet-friendly). We'll just tell ourselves there's no such thing as too much of a good thing. That's an expression we like.
