In case you needed more proof that old people are having the best week ever, the eyewear upstarts at Illesteva have released the lookbook for their Summer 2010 collection and it is chock full o’ the elderly. The collection was inspired by the golden age of Havana in the 50’s, when the “Latin Las Vegas” brought in all types of high rollers for some living large in the Caribbean. Bypassing the complications of traveling to Cuba these days, the Illesteva crew instead ventured down to the famous Calle Ocho Boulevard in Miami and employed some of the domino-playing locals to model the frames. The sunglasses themselves are made from materials ranging from steel, to titanium, bamboo and acetate. And, if you’re willing to shell out $2,000, you can even get your hands on a pair of buffalo horn shades with photochromic lenses. And if you’re not? Guess you can wait until they make a collection inspired by Atlantic City.
See some more of the lookbook after the jump.
