Botkier x Vogue Eyewear/CFDA City Collection x Aimee Song

Planet Botkier September 23, 2011

They have finally arrived! Botkier’s first ever sunglass design. Inspired by the city of Miami, these red hot shades are for fun in the sun. Get out there and shine! Available exclusively at Sunglass Hut.

It was an honor to win this project through the CFDA who partnered with Vogue Eyewear to choose three members for three city inspired frames. “There were dozens of amazing applicants but Monica, Rebecca and Yeohlee’s visions for this project were just exceptional,” said Daniela Policastro, global brand manager at Vogue Eyewear.  “Each pair artfully exemplifies the Vogue Eyewear brand, captures the essence of the inspiration city, and showcases the designer’s unique identity.  The 2011 City Collection provides a new perspective, a new twist on sunglass design.”

Behind the scenes filming in the Botkier studio and…

…on location with the one and only Aimee Song. It was a lot of fun going through the entire process from inspiration board to sketch. Then from finished product to filming Aimee with her amazing style – our sunglasses and EDEN satchel. All that color for October!

“These sunglasses are meant for the woman who is edgy, sexy, fashion forward and likes to explore the city.  They are meant for the fashion art girl who loves the museums, art galleries and always the parties during Art Basil Miami. A bold persona who can mix within the different worlds of Miami, whether it be a Cuban coffee shop, gallery opening or pool side party at The Raleigh.” – Monica Botkier

Fashion’s Night Out… a night in at Botkier NoLIta!

Planet Botkier September 09, 2011

Fashion’s Night Out turned out to be a fabulous night in for us down at our NoLIta boutique. We hosted a DIY party where Botkier Babes came down to decorate their very own eco friendly totes with Swarovski crystals, iron-ons, leather, studs and more! All proceeds from the sale of the totes went to benefit Oxfam.

Nadia of FrouFrouu with her cool and minimalist DIY design, love!

Great example of the iron-on details we had. This one is inspired by the Flint group for Fall.

Beautiful work ladies!
