ACCESSORIES BRAND TO WATCH: CO-LAB

June 17, 2007 BY CAPSULESNEWS

COLAB1.jpgPioneering a new movement in fashion, Australia-based eyewear manufacturer, CoLab is collaborating with some of the edgiest artists from around the globe, morphing their designs into the production of limited edition eyewear, in a project so changeable, it’s almost an anti-brand.
Each season Colab selects a small group of artists  or guest ‘professors’, in the Colab laboratories, to create unique eyewear that is accessible to those who appreciate design ingenuity.  Each style will be limited to a maximum 1000 pairs worldwide and will be individually numbered. Every pair is a work of art and is instantly classified as a
collectible.
For s/s 2007 Colab teamed up with Perks & Mini, Eboy,Geoff  McFetridge, Rockin Jellybean, and Neasden Control Centre, for a collection of eyewear that's in-your-face and on your face!

Taking the laboratory reference one step further, we also love the way the glasses are shown- they're displayed in clear plastic pockets mounted on the outside of a white lab coat.
