Sure, it's nice to share closets with (or even swipe tees from) the boys. But with Thom Browne's first women's eyewear collection, we've never been happier to keep these babies all to ourselves. The designer whose beautiful unisex frames were once flattering for both fellas and ladies, has (yet again) won us over, this time with a retro-inspired collection for fall '12.
Partnering with L.A.-based Dita Eyewear, the TB collection is reminiscent of the '40s, '50s, and '60s — including sexy cat-eyes and cool rounded specs à la Lennon.

Lay your peepers on all the designs in the slides, and pick up your own pair available this June at Dita Legends Melrose.
Dita Legends Melrose, 7625 Melrose Avenue (by North Stanley Avenue); 323-658-7078.
