Sunglass options have exploded over the past few years, making it possible to buy almost anything you could ever want in eyewear. In turn, glasses have become one of my go-to accessories and I have amassed quite a collection. I will be adding Custom Projects to the portfolio.

In 2010, a group of creative young entrepreneurs in Mexico sought to combine the elements of nature and design through the manufacturing of wood frame sunglasses; creating unique glasses for unique people. The brand uses only sustainable teak or walnut and manufacture all of their own products from start to finish in their workshop. Handmade wooden sunglasses at an amazing price. Check them out.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
