The Demna Gvasalia-designed frames are inspired by light-up sneakers from the ’90s and reference the illuminated Track Sneakers released earlier in 2019. For the sunglasses, Balenciaga dressed the bold rectangular frame in gloss black and adds black lenses for even more ’90s-inspired tinges. From there, the luxury label adds its moniker onto the thick arms and lights it up in blue, red, green, purple, yellow, and white.
The glasses can be programmed to fade inbetween the colors listed above, or to blink or remain as one static color. They are chargeable via a standard USB cable and only light up when the arms are fully extended. To turn them off, close them, place them upside down for more than five seconds, or tap them three times.
Take a closer look at the retro-futuristic sunglasses above and stay tuned to HYPEBEAST for official release information.
