Ray-Ban and New York-based artist Maya Hayuk partnered to customize and hand-paint 150 pairs of the iconic Wayfarers exclusively for Sunglass Hut for a good cause. Each pair will be completely unique and one-of-a-kind, a true piece of wearable art. Some of the designs reminds me of Skittles which puts a smile on my face- fun and happy sunglasses.
The vibrant Wayfarers retail for $140, the regular price of the Wayfarer, with 50% of the proceeds going to Luxottica’s charity, OneSight. 50 pairs of the sunglasses will be available at the Sunglass Hut boutique in SoHo, New York – hitting the store on Black Friday (11.27.2009) and 50 pairs will become available in the San Francisco boutique on Cyber Monday (11.30.2009). The remaining 50 pairs will be available at www.sunglasshut.com. Maya will also create an installation in the windows so that shoppers can watch her work in action, her murals on display in each store will also be auctioned off in support of OneSight.
