WHY DID YOU WANT TO DO A SUNGLASSES COLLABORATION?
I got my first pair of Electric sunglasses about two years ago. I knew a little bit about the brand but I wasn’t really that familiar with them. But I took a chance and loved them! The next thing you know, I found more styles through Electric that I loved. Before I knew it, I had three pairs! After a while, a lot of you started to notice them and commented how much you liked them on me. Of course when other women tell you that you look good in something, it is the best feeling! I mean I knew that I liked them, but getting that extra confidence boost really can turn something you love into your favorite thing.
From there, I told you all where I got them from and the response was overwhelming. You guys were buying them and loving them! The internet is a funny place, and after a while, the people at Electric were like “Who is this Landyn chick and how are all these women from across the country coming to us and buying glasses?”.
The owner, Abby, and her husband Eric, reached out to me and said that they had some new glasses coming out and we would love for you to have them if you would like to try them! So they sent me a pair of the Honeybee and the Crashers. Every single pair that I put on, I would absolutely love! I love the style, the weight and color combinations. They are so on trend but not over the top, just very classic. I instantly fell in love. I think it was about a year ago when they asked me if I ever considered creating and designing my own pair of sunglasses? I was like, IM SORRY, I think you have the wrong number. HA! I couldn’t believe they were asking me, Landyn, to design a pair of sunglasses!! But they were!
We began this journey of creating something beautiful by Abby and Eric flying here from California last fall. They brought a bunch of different samples and lenses. I had no idea what all goes into creating sunglasses and guessed it was quite extensive but I had no real idea since that just wasn’t my world. We spent an entire day going over different frame styles, and face shape and details. I learned so much and from there we started this journey together and I am so proud of what we have made together!
