I was pretty miffed that I missed Selfridges
launch of the new Ray-Ban
Colorize Wayfarers at the beginning of March. Â I was on a press trip at a spa hotel in Barcelona at the time, so really shouldn’t complain. Â But still, I felt left out! Â So I popped into the exhibition at London Oxford Street store on Saturday to see what I missed. Â The Selfridges Ultralounge on the lower-ground floor features an ongoing Ray-Ban exhibition that’s open to all – do go and see it if you’re hitting Oxford Street anytime soon.
What’s the deal? Â This is an exhibition featuring ten guitars which have been customised by different music and design talents. Â New Young Pony Club
are just some of the artists/designers who have ‘Colourized’ their own Fender guitars.
What can you buy? Â For those still not happy with the hundreds of Ray-Ban colours on offer, you can do a DIY with the Colorize kit. Â It comes complete with a pair of iconic Ray-Ban Wayfarers, permanent marker pens, paints and stencils so that you can customise your sunglasses with whatever doodles you fancy. Â Pretty clever really.
Final note: the chandelier made from Ray-Ban Wayfarers was a definite highlight!
