The Event

Le Specs hosted an intimate cocktail evening to celebrate its latest collaboration with US Designer Adam Selman,  at Hotel Americano, 518 West 27th Street, New York.

Despite the below zero temperatures, industry insiders took a break from their busy Fashion Week schedules to check out this exciting collection. Guests enjoyed playing dress ups with the fun frames, while DJ trio The Misshapes provided the night’s soundtrack. The close-knit crowd of creatives chatted late into the night.

The Collection

This latest designer collaboration for Le Specs is a result of Tame’s insistence on pushing boundaries. In recent years he has championed collaborations with other bold designers including Craig & Carl, Henry Holland and Anthony Lister, who all share Tame’s irreverent and cheeky philosophy. Adam Selman x Le Specs is no exception.

Redefining the traditional notion of eyewear, Le Specs has fostered a cult following for the brand counting Beyoncé, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Kate Moss and Olivia Palermo amongst its fans.

Stocked by top retailers including NET-A-PORTER, Nordstrom, Nitty Gritty, Club 21, and General Pants; Le Specs can be found in leading department stores, fashion retailers and boutiques in over 30 countries worldwide.

Adam Selman x Le Specs is now available online at lespecs.com and from leading fashion retailers and boutiques.
