United by a common love for custom low-rider cars, music and Los Angeles, Mister Cartoon and Barton Perreira have combined their unique styles and come up with one seriously cool frame that reflects the heart and soul of both designers. Designer Patty Perreira says: “I am a huge fan of Mister Cartoon, I love his unique style and how he is mad about details just like I am. Somehow I feel a sort of design affinity towards him and I wanted to bring his magical touch to a sunglass design. I think the outcome is amazing and you can feel the luxury as soon as you put them on.” Mister Cartoon responds in kind: “I like Barton Perreira’s originality and style. I’m a car guy as well as a tattoo artist, so sunglasses are an essential part of lowriding and driving on the west coast…. The glasses have to be original, strong, and a quality that makes them standout from the rest – and the darker the better.” The resulting pair uses a hand-polished Japanese Zyl frame with Nylite lenses in an ode to the luxurious artistry of Barton Perreira and Cartoon’s street art. The shades will retail at $595 USD, limited to 400 pairs.
