It was only a matter of time. And the time has come. While doing a little searching around the internet I came upon a new collabo via both SlamxHype and HypeBeast. Japanese brand Swagger has teamed up with German eyewear brand, Cazal to offer up a super-limited edition of the Cazal 858. Cazal has been around since 1975. My mom rocked them in the late 80's. I remember she came home from the bank one day upset that she had left and lost her sunglasses there. At the time I thought nothing of it. It was years later that I realized the glasses she had lost where Cazal's, the 607's, made popular by Run DMC back in the day. I so wish she still had those. Here's what Slamxhype had to report:"Swagger has teamed up with Cazal this spring for something really special. German eyewear company Cazal created the iconic frames for the 80’s, dominating the streets of NYC and Japan with their instantly recognizable shades and made famous by RUN DMC. Swagger has updated and upgraded one of the most collected of the vintage series, the Cazal 858, tinting the glass a cool lavender and using a white enamel with and pink and blue accents for the arms. This hyper-exclusive collaboration will arrive at the Swagger flagship store, their 6 branches and approved retailers in Japan the end of April. For international customers, please go to Choice Is Yours to get your hands on a pair."
