A-Morir Barracuda Pyramid Stud Sunglasses by Kerin Rose

"Last week we checked out the new “Run This Town” video by Jay-Z, featuring Rihanna and Kanye West. One of the things we asked right after watching the video was – who made those crazy stud sunglasses for Rihanna? Luckily we can tell you today – a-morir.

Kerin Rose set up a-morir a little under a year ago. The designer is best known for her sunglasses, which are all made by hand in her workshop. To date she has made sunglasses for Rihanna, Katy Perry, Mariah Carey, Cassie, as well as Mickey Factz. Her sunglasses also recently appeared in Married to the MOB and Hellz Bellz lookbooks.

Rihanna is wearing the Pyramid Stud sunglasses in Jay-Z’s music video. The sunglasses are entirely covered in hand-painted pyramid studs, that have been slightly distressed. Since we know the question will come up – yes, you can actually perfectly see through them. You will be able to purchase the sunglasses from October, when not only a black, but also silver and gold colorways will be coming out. The sunglasses can be pre-ordered for 350 USD here."

I dont think that these shades could be used in a normal day other than wearing them in parties as a show off.
