Video: The Making Of The New Lanvin Glasses Collection

Lanvin's womenswear line has always been a perfect mixture of smart and sexy, so when we heard that they were planning on launching an eyeglasses line, the four-eyes in our office found a new reason to delay their contacts reorder. Alber Elbaz has just released the images from the upcoming collection that includes tortoiseshell frames, curved aviators, and studious square frames, constructed in a multi-media fashion (like many of Lanvin's chunky accessories), and are bedecked with intricate costume-jewelry accents like rhinestones and contrast arms that feel cool rather than art teacher-ly. Click through for front and side views of his five styles, and tell us which you'd most like to spend some face time with, and see the video below that shows the amazing process that goes into constructing a pair of glasses. The glasses will be available online at Lanvin and in stores this spring.
