Warren Smith for RAEN ‘Squire Church’ Sunglasses

These shades from RAEN were designed in conjunction with Warren Smith, an industry vet whose book Modern Optical Engineering was originally published in 1966 but continues to hold influence. Taking these in, we can see why. The vintage shape of RAEN’s Squire frame is buoyed into timelessness here by the sweet translucent bone acetate. Our eyes keep returning to that cool metal-rimmed hole at the back of the left-hand ear-piece, however. Seems like it would be murder on the Optics by Carl Zeiss lenses, but I guess these would look good on a key chain. Bonus: the price is proper; available online.
