Could This Luxury Streetwear Collaboration Be Summer’s Best Sunglasses?

Since its inception in 2007, eyewear firm Barton Perreira has been producing tastefully trendy shades that have been worn by men — you may have heard of some of them — like Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, and Fear of God designer Jerry Lorenzo, to name a few.

Lorenzo is taking his admiration for the label to the next level by collaborating with them on a new eyewear collection, FGBP.2020. Both Los Angeles-based style brands have plenty in common. After all, “tasteful” and trendy” are two words to describe Lorenzo’s luxury streetwear brand, whose design inspirations could be best described as a mixtape of premium fabrics, 90s nostalgia, and bible verses, and have been worn by guys like Kanye West, Justin Bieber, and DJ Khaled.

When the 42-year-old designer happened upon his first pair of Barton Perreira shades at a Los Angeles boutique in 2013, he immediately fell in love with the brand.

“Similar to digging at vintage flea markets, you have an idea of what you’re looking for but, until you find it, the idea of what you’re looking for is just that: an idea,” Lorenzo told Robb Report. “When I found my first pair, I was like, ‘Finally, the solution I needed!'”

Naturally, the result of their collaboration is a stunningly rendered collection of acetate shades in five of Lorenzo’s signature earth-toned colors. Of course, FHBP.2020 is a mix of vintage of contemporary influences (think: rectangular silhouette) finished with light gradient lenses for a truly timeless pair of shades that will look great with just about anything. And unlike other flashier legacy brands which heavily feature logos, FHBP.2020 is all about understatement.

“[Barton Perreira’s] glasses are designed in a way that allows a beautiful frame to take a back seat to the subject who’s wearing them,” Lorenzo wrote in a press release. “I love this approach to design, where the focus is on the subject and not the physical proposition. I wanted to bring a sense of modernity to the classic frame that I’ve been wearing for the past seven years.”

The collection, which retails for $510 each, is available now on and for pre-order, and will ship on June 19.

Here’s what you’ll actually want to wear for the rest of the summer
Men's summer fashion trends to follow this season

Men's summer fashion is an ever-changing animal that is difficult to keep up with if you're not paying attention. While it seems that men's fashion moves much slower than women's fashion, the truth is that it moves just as fast, but with smaller movements of the needle. As the seasons change, there are certain trends and items that we love to wear. This is a collection of the best garments you can use to put together the best summer looks for the rest of the season.

Summer colors
This summer’s palette remains somewhat muted and neutral, often taking cues from nature, with bright pops of color enlivening earth tones. White, taupe, black, and navy are our key foundation hues, but a "fall for spring" story means we’re seeing traditionally autumnal colors like olive, brown, and rust, working their way into our shorts, T-shirts, and swimsuits. Those are further bolstered with clear shots of green, aqua, and bold red, as well as bright yellow and orange. Pantone may have expressed it best with its color(s) of the year: Pantone 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and Pantone 13-0647 Illuminating.
The return of Y2K
As the fashion world goes around in circles, the styles of the times cycle back to be relevant once again. So break out those looser fit shirts and pants; skinny is out. There are many looks that are going to look familiar if you are of a certain age to have experienced these the first time around.

The best men’s jewelry: Add the perfect finishing touch to your look
Accessorize all of your best looks with the top jewelry items on the market

Jewelry has long been a difficult thing for many men to master simply because so much of it is considered too feminine. While a man in silver and gold can feel too gaudy and be seen as trying too hard, too much leather can make a man look like he's attempting to recreate the look of his favorite rock star, making him look immature. Therefore, many men stick to their favorite watches and try not to overdo it when looking for the best men's jewelry.

We're here to tell you that times are changing. You don't need to shy away from your favorite metals, even if going with something slim and simple is the alternative to going thick and eye catching. You can wear leathers, but like most things, less is more. The idea is not to overdo it. Jewelry is an accessory, and like any good accessory, it is meant to complement your look, not take it over.
