Exclusive: POMS x Pared Eyewear

'Bazaar' gets framed.

POMS and Pared, sitting in a tree. The two local labels have just collaborated on a range of eyewear that takes POMS' 'Bazaar' SS13/14 collection to it's logical conclusion — sunnies! Designers Adriana Guiffrida and Sam Stevenson first became friends when they were working for Bleach (encompassing Something Else and Ksubi.) Since then, the kids have started their own, equally cute, brands. As Adriana puts it, "I think there is a playfulness to both brands that compliment each other really well. Both of us have fun with colour in our ranges, and the collaboration came together so organically that it was proof of POMS and Pared being a perfect match!"

A tribute to Turkish culture and their marketplaces specifically, the collaboration consists of two styles (in two colourways each) — the 'Turkish Delight' and the 'Halva.' There's only 100 frames available all up, so get to the POMS and Pared online stores if you know what's good for your face.
P.S. How adorable is their campaign featuring Thalea MV? Pretty sure we've seen that bed for sale at Franco Cozzo in Brunswick.
