Gafas - Chris Bosh

Look how stylin our favourite Raptor is looking in his Dita Pusher ... all ready to go for the MMVA's (June 21, 09). Can't wait to see him again.

Christopher Wesson Bosh (born March 24, 1984) is an American professional basketball player in the NBA who plays for the Toronto Raptors.
In the 2006–07 season, Bosh led the Raptors to their first NBA Playoffs berth in five years, and their first ever division title. He is Toronto's all-time leader in rebounds, blocks, double doubles, free throws made and attempted, and minutes played.
Off the court, Bosh is noted for his philanthropy and active community service. In recognition of his own childhood experience, he set up the Chris Bosh Foundation to help promote sports and education amongst youths in Dallas and Toronto, and regularly speaks to youths about the benefits of reading.

REDBALL hits Queen st

Wow we got the famous REDBALL a few stores away from us. Was a very cool to see. Glad they have chosen Queen st as a canvas to display this piece of art.

Having made headlines in cities from Barcelona to Chicago, something big and red comes bouncing into Toronto on its global trek. Experience your city through the imagination and vitality of RedBall.
Easing into entrance ways, basking beneath bridges or wedged into alleyways, RedBall searches for new opportunities as the city itself becomes a canvas of possibilities.
Perschke's project investigates Toronto's specific urban landscape and history. With vision, curiosity and wit, RedBall reveals places we never noticed before and re-imagines familiar landmarks. RedBall represents an immediate creative impulse embedded in all of us - the simple act of seeing afresh.
So go seek it out as it touches down in a different Toronto location every day and follow its migration across the city on the artist's blog at:

Maverick should have worn Carrera

Just in .. the new vintage collection by Carrera. For all the sunglass fans out there you have to try on the new vintage release by Carrera. The sickest styles with an unreal price point. The styles are inspired by the 50's look with the 80's raw edge. Did I mention tons of colours to choose from.

The Legend is Back

The Legend is back- One of the hottest pairs of sunglasses from the 80's designed by the great Cari Zalloni. It has now been re-released in a limited run. This pair of shades inspired the 1985 track "snatchin' Cazals" by the Cazal boys and Jazzy Jeff. Back in the days you could have been jacked for your cazals. These shades were a big deal and in very high demand. They even made a specific website for this bad boy you better snatch a pr before they are once again sold out.

The first one to pick up a pair .. they look sick brother

Only at Gafas.

The science of artistic vision

Well here we go again. Another first for Toronto brought to you by Gafas. Now when we talk about fun and funky Colab is it. Designs brought to you by world wide designers and artists. Each style is limited to 1000 pieces and actually numbered. Now that is insane for a collection that retails no higher than $280.00. My favorite style is the EX-VANDALS...

"There is nothing as boring as fashion that is mass-produced, hashed, rehashed and just trash. We roll out a blank canvas and let our guest professors drop art with the Colab science of production".

"This is something unique. Born in the mind of the artist and brought to life in the Colaboratory. The Colab range of eyewear brings a selection of individual designers and artists together. Each artist creates a range whereby their design aesthetic is transposed into a collective, accessible to their followers".

"Seasonally, Colab will invite new individuals and groups to create a range that mirrors their own personal artistic mentality into eyewear".

Colab launch party coming out....
