WILDE SUNGLASSES NEW WEBSITE | From its first steps in Barcelona, Wilde Vintage Sunglasses became an important reference in Europe's fashion. Wilde's vintage sunglasses collection is a result of 18 years collecting unique pieces, individually picked for their aestetic value, delivering quality and criteria. A long term devotion gathering sunglasses and valuable objects of interest discovered in urban auctions, shops, private collections and a variety of secret sources over the world defines their methodology to uncover under-served needs. "Picked and purchased one by one". That's how they work.
In September 2009, as a result of many years of research, deliberate selection and strong personal contact with passionate people, Wilde Sunglasses launched its first self-designed and handcrafted eyewear collection.
Whether you're looking for unique vintage eyewear or handcrafted contemporary pieces with a strong personnality, Wilde Vintage Sunglasses is definitely worth the trip.

About Victor von Schwarz
Just before his long trip to Taipei, Fucking Young! got the chance to work with him to create a reversible bomber jacket, 100% made in Barcelona. With Russian origin and based in Barcelona, Victor von Schwarz finished his fashion studies in 2009, followed by a Masters in tailoring. After working in the design departments of Manuel Bolaño, Josep Font and Bibian Blue, he started his own fashion house.
Before long, his personality, talent and the thorough craftsmanship of his pieces, embellished with crystals and other hand stitched details, landed him a show at EL EGO at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid. Now, inspired by his stay in Taiwan, heʼs preparing his fourth collection, which will be presented during the next edition of EL EGO (Madrid - September 2013).
A limited edition of 20 jackets only is available in Fucking Young! online store from the 7th May 2013! Hurry!

AUSTRALIA FASHION WEEK Spring-Summer 2013-14 | Editor's Pick: SHAKUHACHI + ROMANCE WAS BORN. The first pick, Shakuhachi, is designed by Jessie White who presented functionnal and feminine silhouettes with floral prints and gelato shades. Key pieces of the collection: the neoprene midi peplum skirt and structured bodice, teamed back with over-the-knee neoprene boots.
What would be the common point between Shakuhachi and Romance was born? The fantastical floral fairytale. Romance was born designers - Luke Sales and Anna Plunkette - obviously pushed it further with their unbridled psychedelia and their hallucinogenic prints.
