“We were going for a retro futuristic take on cat-eyes” says Selima Salaun.
These unique frames convey a sense of ‘90’s toughness’ through the cat-eye shaped flash mirror lenses mounted in a bold acetate frame. If anyone can pull of this fierce look, it’s Bad Gal - especially when accompanied by an over-sized brown suit from Y/project.
