In celebration of Lee Cooper's 100th anniversary, French sunglasses expert Alain Mikli designed a very unique pair of shades.

The hand-made Zipper Shades infuse denim from Lee Cooper jeans into the frame. His imagination didn't stop there. Mikli went on further with his crazy ideas and experimented with the lens. He incorporated the Lee Cooper puller into the design, even adding the carved zipper teeth.

Alain Mikli is the same man who designed Kanye West's Shutter Shades. His out-of-the-box designs are a favourite among celebrities like Elton John, BONO, Lenny Kravitz, among others.
