Severe and sweeping, perhaps this video lookbook for Yves Saint Laurent's Spring/Summer 2011 eyewear line can be forgiven for being a bit over the top. After all, it's introducing a collection of truly luxurious, truly sophisticated accessories for warmer weather. Naturally, we're fans of the frames that neatly represent the late Saint Laurent's own glasses — but there's more to enjoy here. The aviators' have a sharp, technical look, and a set of rounded frames frames in dark horn is fashion forward, without stepping off the cliff of good taste. All in all, the video, shot by Karim Sadli, offers multiple reasons to seek out the collection at the brand's brick-and-mortar stores and online at www.ysl.com.
