Chronicles of Never Origin of Light SunglassesBy Meieli Detoni
These are some curious shades, aren’t they? Chronicles of Never’s round-frame sunglasses have a unique frame design that makes them seem as if they’ve been cut out from cardboard and painted black. Flat and with an unusual rectangular effect at the temples, these sunglasses will create a bespectacled, bookish look… even though yours are tinted and you’ll be in the sun, not in the library. Depending on the face and the setting, these could be really cool or really ugly.
Most people are leaning to the former, since Oak’s “new release” from Chronicles of Never is already sold out. They were $316, but these exaggerated-temple sunglasses are gone before they left the first page. Oak has an additional pair of new Chronicles of Never sunglasses with a high-shine finish and oversized, square frames, and they are in stock–and they’re the same price. You can grab black or tortoise in the Corpus Callosum, your choice. As for those pesky Origin of Light sunglasses? The Annex in Australia has them for AU299 (USD308) and ships worldwide. Huzzah! You’ll pay $40 to get them shipped to the States, but they’re sold out at Oki-Ni and Eye Goodies, plus Oak, of course. [$316 at oak, now sold out!]
