It’s been well-documented that Kanye West cares a lot about what Kim Kardashian wears, starting with the 2012 Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode where West and stylist Renelou Pandora gave Kim’s closet a makeover. And now, on Sunday night’s episode, we learned Kanye sends Kim, er, personal mood boards, as well.
From The Cut:
“[Kanye] sent me a whole email like, ‘You cannot wear big glasses anymore. It’s all about tiny little glasses,’” Kim tells Kourtney and Jonathan Cheban in the episode, referring to those teeny-tiny Matrix-like sunglasses the Kardashians have been wearing lately.
Also recently, Rihanna wore a pair of tiny sunglasses — a red pair designed by George Keburia — as part of Harley Weir’s Nocturnal Activities cover story, and the Georgian designer has also outfitted Solange, Bella and Gigi Hadid. Keburia, in a Dazed interview published today, perfectly described what attracts people to an otherwise unflattering eyewear shape.
“I wanted to mix an iconic cat eye silhouette with a more futuristic aesthetic to create shades that are equally classic, edgy and modern,” Keburia told Dazed. “Strangely, a lot of our customers say that the glasses do not suit their face, but they still buy them. I think the reason is that it gives them a stronger aesthetic and makes them feel more confident.”
These sunglasses are futuristic meets uniquely feminine.
