Shady Spex is the culmination of the friendship between Babs' brother, drummer Sweet Joey Valentine, and DJ Jonathan Toubin. The duo endeavored to create an economically-priced quality sunglass brand based on styles worn by their rock 'n roll icons and friends, that feature quality protective lenses and recycled materials. Inspired by a photo of "Raisin in the Sun" author Lorraine Hansberry, these unique cateye frames also reference blues legend and style icon Lightnin' Hopkins. The sexy contours evoke the aesthetic of stylized mid-centrury designs. 50mm-width lenses. The Bone and Black/Black versions feature polarized lenses. Microfiber pouch included.
