Andy Wolf Sunglasses can be the exclamation point to your whole entire outfit. For some, one’s signature look is not complete without it. Take style icons Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, Victoria Beckham, and fashion blogger Thrifts and Threads just to name a few of these style mavens who are rarely caught without the right pair that perfectly frames their faces. This is the same notion on why Shades for the People was conceptualized. SFTB was made for the fellow sunglass-obsessed, who are constantly on the look out for new and exciting brands who deliver exceptional design and incredible value. For many in some way, having the right pair of shades is a way of life.
It’s no wonder that when we stumbled across Austrian label Andy Wolf’s collection of eyewear, we knew we had to get our hands on it, and more importantly — be the first to carry it online. A new division of Andy Wolf Eyewear, Andy Wolf was conceived in 2015, focusing on exciting color combinations, classic eyewear shapes, and abstract designs based around the 70s. Not only are the frames stylish in design, but they’re also specially fitted with Zeiss lenses which provide precision optics to deliver a high visual experience.

But don’t get us wrong—just because we’re the first to carry Andy Wolf online, doesn’t mean it hasn’t graced the faces of some of your favorite stylish celebs. Beyonce was spotted rocking a pair of Andy Wolf sunnies on her recent trip to Côte d’Azur. In fact they have a pretty huge cult following, and can be seen in some of the best style mags such as Wonderland, Marie Claire, and Vogue. For people who gravitate towards a retro-feel

This is why carrying brands like Andy Wolf, aligns with what Shades for the People is all about— that every detail has to be pretty much perfect for glasses to be both beautiful and functional in design. We hope you’re as smitten with Andy Wolf as we are. With their multiple materials and textures in their frames, the only hard part is holding yourself back from collecting it all.
Hey designer sunnie fanatics, it’s time to start thinking about refreshing your shade supply now that sunnier days are now in tow. But if you’re like most of us, you either are that person who A. Loses or breaks their designer sunglasses no matter what, B. Can’t fathom spending $500+ on a pair of shades, that you’re probably gonna do letter A. with, or C. You even wear your sunglasses at night.
Not many sixteen year olds can say that they’ve got two blockbuster movies on the way and a campaign for Chanel circulating the press, but then not many sixteen year olds are like Lily-Rose Depp. To say she hit the genetic lottery would be an absolute understatement. The daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis has the face of a Botticelli angel and cheekbones that could cut like a knife. Having celebrated her “Sour” Sixteen earlier this year, this teen is slowly cementing her place as a fashion It-girl and seems to shrug it off with the nonchalance of only someone with as cool of parents as she could. Lily-Rose Depp has been dominating the street style scene with looks that eschew Tomboy toughness and demure grungey goodness. Lily-Rose Depp caused a riot at Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show when she sat front-row with her famous mom dressed in head-to-toe Chanel. Though the 16-year-old beauty already looks like a model, she’s never did an official photo shoot. It was only a matter of time before Lily-Rose Depp landed an “official” position with Chanel. Named the newest ambassador of the storied French house, the 16-year-old serves as the face of the Chanel Pearl eyewear collection (which dropped earlier this month). Sporting round frames studded with precious white beads in the ad, Lily-Rose Depp is depicted as a “baby doll in a world imbued with sweetness and femininity.” While her campaign isn’t nearly as trippy as her model mom’s starring role in Jean-Paul Goude’s commercial for Coco perfume—during which Vanessa Paradis swings precariously from a perch inside a life-size birdcage—we definitely see why Karl is keeping it in the family. “Lily-Rose Depp is stunning, she’s a young girl from a new generation with all the qualities of a star,” as explained by Lagerfeld. Will a mother-daughter beauty spot be next? By the look of that lipstick on a fresh-faced Depp, one can only hope a makeup contract is already in the works. She’s also recently completed a shoot for French Vogue, in a Victorian inspired spread that mimics the atmosphere of her birthday party from earlier this year. Though she’s only in high school, Depp is on her way to becoming something of a cultural force. She’s swiftly working her way up the fashion ranks thanks to Karl Lagerfeld, but she’s also helping raise LGBTQI awareness. Last month, she came out in support of the “Self Evident Truths” project and, in turn, as someone who identifies as anything other than 100% straight.
