New Maison Martin Margiela sunglasses (via High Snobiety)
Fashion bloggers went nuts over Maison Martin Margiela L’incognito sunglasses last year and understandably so. L’incognito are futuristic and shiny and remind me of Geordi in Star Trek: TNG (HI! I’m a big nerd!). The wearer, when photographed, looks like they’ve already had an anonymising stripe Photoshopped across their eyes. Hell, even Pharrell donned them in the Hype Williams directed video for Everyone Nose (remix).

After seeing L’incognito, I thought there’d be even more strange awesomeness in 2009, but these new sunglasses look too much like ski masks for me to honestly say I like them. Although I wouldn’t be surprised if my mind changed once I see pictures of someone actually wearing them.
