Although the designs featured throughout the debut collection of the Will.i.am Eyewear are as experimental as one would expect, they are also as unexpectedly classy and classic. That is not to say that the American rapper and songwriter isn't classy or classic. It's just to say that he has a pension for being more out there than the average fellow.
Expectations aside, the Will.i.am Eyewear collection is full of stylish designs that anyone would want to get their hands on. Dubbed ill.i Optics, each frame was designed in Los Angeles and handmade in Italy. Inspired by rare vintage shapes, the Will.i.am Eyewear collection takes note from the frame choices of 80s hip-hop pioneers and graffiti characters' oversized glasses.
