Newly-launched accessory label Planet i makes its debut with disco-inspired eyewear featuring sparkle lenses. Launched by Eric Steginsky this year, the biggest challenge was mixing the right proportion of glass and glitter, a process which took a year of experimentation.
“You have to have the exact ratio so people can still see out of them,” he says. “I had to become an expert on glitter. I would go to party stores and just play around. I’m a big fan of the Halloween shops in Union Square. I would paw through materials,” Steginsky told Vogue magazine.
Priced from $60-$72, there are five different silhouettes: Flame, Extraterrestrial, Space Cowboy, Moonwalker and Lightrider. All five styles are now available in multiple color combinations at we-are-planet-i.com.
