Jhane Barnes has made a career out of doing things differently and Jhane Barnes sunglasses collection is created in that same vein. When she graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology, armed with a $5,000 loan from her biology teacher, she turned fashion on its head by creating a pair of pants with no back pockets. Men like John Travolta, Jack Nicholson and John Lennon loved them and they quickly became that season's hottest item. Barnes' whole approach flies in the face of the establishment. While most fashion designers use a right-brain, artsy approach to design, Jhane Barnes gets her inspiration from an unlikely source — math. She's works with advanced computer programs and prominent mathematicians like Bill Jones and Bernt Wahl to invent patterns and textiles that the world has never seen before. Her innovations have earned her multiple Coty Menswear Awards (one at age 25) and fans like Elton John and Paul Simon
Her mathematical mind is always pursuing perfection and you'll see that translated into her brand's line of sunglasses. Every detail is carefully considered, from the sleek contours of the temple to the density of the rims and the architecture of the frame itself. We carry a range of styles from Jhane Barnes, giving you a choice of aviators, rectangles and rounded edges in a variety of colors and patterns. However you choose to build your pair, you can know that you're getting nothing short of perfection.
