The Find: Henry Holland and Linda Farrow sunglasses that are as bright as the sun

Henry Holland is known for dressing London’s Geldolf girls and model-friend Agyness Deyn, and season after season he’s attracted trendy girls worldwide seeking the London look (when Rimmel isn’t enough) with an assortment of vibrant garments and playful street-inspired accessories. So when we saw a pair of sunglasses he made in collaboration with Linda Farrow —who gained notoriety for her Mickeys collaboration with Jeremy Scott—at Ruins on Queen Street West, we inwardly drummed up hackneyed green-with-envy comments, and then almost immediately decided we had to have them. The green Plexiglas sunglasses, featuring lenses that unite with the frame in one piece, look like a 2-D version of a classic ’80s shape (they’re also not another pair of Ray-Bans, which is part of their appeal). Since it’s spring, and summer isn’t far behind, we think it’s about time we coloured our world. $225.

Ruins, 960 Queen St. W., 647-351-0960, ruinstoronto.com.
