Mykita Flash sunglasses ($495) from the Spring/Summer 09 collection were designed with the overall aim of adding bold vibrant colors to Mykita’s Collection No. 1. With this being the first installment of the Flash line, Mykita was sure to use the finest quality color coating  Swiss lacquer. The Mykita Flash shades are available in three of their signature aviator frames; Rolf, Hector, and Elliot. Each frame comes in colors neon yellow, blazing orange, & vibrant tank grey and I have no doubt that these are true attention grabbers.

Contraste Sneakers in White ($648)

Check out the new Fall 2009 sneaker collection from designer Kris Van Assche. Kris balances formality and casual with edgy designs which consists of intricate high-tops with Velcro details. All the shoes were done in a simple white or black colorway. I must say these shoes are definitely interesting and worth every penny in my opinion.
