If you see someone strolling around looking extra sharp in a pair of wood finished sunnies, chances are they are made by Shwood. The Portland-based company has become a premier brand in the sunglasses market due to their iconic wood-finished shades.
Shwood’s new release The Bushmills are an eye-catching collaboration with Boston fashion entrepreneurs Bodega and Bushmills Irish Whisky. What could whisky possibly have to do with these sunnies? Absolutely everything.
As always, with something so unique and innovative, a very limited number of pairs were released; 100 worldwide. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on a pair, you’ll be pleasantly surprised when the package arrives at the door, before you even open it.
The sunglasses are packaged in a very appropriate custom made wooden box, complimented with a mini crowbar to help you unleash the wooden-whisky treasure inside. If the whole idea of whisky sunnies tickles your fancy, be prepared to pay a fortune. Alternatively, if funds are low, just buy some regular Shwood’s and soak them in a bucket of whisky. On the upside, you have a bucket of whisky to finish afterwards. (SOURCE)
