Lunettes London featuring 1980s Anglo American big yellow frames

Lunettes London offers probably one of the best value destinations on the web to purchase exciting genuine eyewear.

Here we feature some pictures from its latest shoot, but the final picture comes from the Lunettes London ASOS Marketplace: a pair of Anglo American vintage yellow oversized frames.

While big frames are without doubt on the up, this pic shows we have some way to go before we match the 1980s - only £48!!

London Olympics 2012 #3: Tia Hellebaut in Oakley, Mo Farah and Usain Bolt

London Olympics 2012 #3: Tia Hellebaut in Oakley London Olympics 2012 #3: Tia Hellebaut in Oakley
Our last Olympics post, a week later... EWG was lucky enough to be at the final evening of athletics last Saturday. Obviously, seeing Usain Bolt in the 4x100m men's relay and, in particular, Mo Farah winning the 5000m, was unbelievable, but there aren't many spectacles in track and field. Luckily we spottted Tia Hellebaut, the Belgian high-jumper, on the big screen in her red Oakleys, above, to give us the excuse of sharing a few more photos from the night...

London 2012 Olympics #1: smiles and shades

EWG was lucky enough to go to the penultimate night of the Olympics and got there early to take advantage of sunny skies and sunglasses. So here are couple of the lovely smiley London 2012 volunteers on the walk from West Ham into the Olympic Park. Top, some flowery Ray-Bans, then some strong mirrored aviators...

Brixton Village #4: Quince is back in black flattops

EWG's trip to Brixton is one of only a few forays into streetstyle  photography. Most of our pictures are taken by others; only occasionally do we take our own.

So it's all the more surprising for me to stop this guy on 5th Avenue, only for him to remember me from a while back when I'd asked to snap him in his glasses once before.

Both times Quince Garcia is wearing super-stylish specs that don't break the bank - this flat-top frame above cost him just £5.

His previous appearance here saw him wearing printed blue wayfarers...

Quince, together with Julien Bernard-Grau, launches Roadworks Magazine,  all about urban arts and culture, this Thursday... subscribe here
