For its sixth and latest installment of the retailer’s Artist Series Collection, Sunglass Hut taps the services of Mr. Brainwash, aka Thierry Guetta, the Paris-born, Los Angeles-based filmmaker and street artist who rose to prominence in the 2010 film Exit Through the Gift Shop. The collection comprises a total of 250 unique designs using a quartet of iconic Ray-Ban models: the Wayfarer, Clubmaster, Aviator and Round silhouettes. The sunglasses will retail for $399.95 per pair, and will come in a unique painted case placed inside a custom-made mock spray can. The collection launches May 15th and will be released over a four-month period. As part of the project, Sunglass Hut’s newly renovated Soho flagship on 496 Broadway will feature a mock art studio, showcasing well-known works of art by Mr. Brainwash.
