By  |  0 Comments

Summer is occurring and, if you haven’t already invested in a cool pair of shades, there is no better time to do so! Even if you have, your eyes will probably appreciate some extra coverage, especially if it happens to be fresh, edgy and ready for some serious beach fun. So do yourself a favor and check out Illesteva.


Designed in hipster paradise NYC and handcrafted in Italy and France, Illesteva are on par with other luxury brands but are better because they are covering relatively unexplored territory.


If you are a jet-setter, gearing up for Ibiza or still contemplating Coachella, you’ve probably already heard of them and, unfortunately,  I am a few years too late. Illesteva was founded in 2009 by the New York-based designer duo Daniel Silberman and Jus Ske. Drawing inspiration from their downtown environment and background in design, music and photography, they create pieces that are the epitome of contemporary edge. The duo experiment with funky shapes and materials like acetate, bamboo, titanium and natural buffalo horn. This combination ensures a timeless result that you may enjoy forever, provided you keep them in their leather hard case.


Illesteva has already gathering a fateful fan crowd, celebrity enthusiasts include Beyonce, Rihanna, Katy Perry and own very own Alexa Chung, just to name a few. You can find them online at illesteva.com and you can thank me later.
