Boutique brands go bling for charity ker-ching

One-off sunglasses will be auctioned to raise money for Orbis

British heritage brand Oliver Goldsmith Sunglasses has partnered with New York accessories ‘bedazzler’ A-Morir to create two one-off sunglass models that will be auctioned to raise money for sight loss charity Orbis.

The archive styles of Fuz and Koko, both of which were designed in 1966, have been reimagined with a modern twist by A-Morir, that has bedazzled the sunglasses, hats, boots and bodysuits for everyone from Lady Gaga to Rihanna, J-Lo and Lizzo. Each frame has been encrusted with hundreds of jewels, and the Koko style features a veil of gems strung together along the brow line.

A silent auction will run until February 28, the entire proceeds of which will be given to Orbis. For more information and to bid, visit
