Bono's Sunglasses
« on: March 05, 2009, 11:33:33 AM »
The new ones, with the star on them. Anyone know what they are? Prada? I think I would like to try out a pair.

His glasses typically range between $200 and $400... Generally they're off-the-shelf Prada (and previously) Bvlgari. Haven't found these yet though!

If you got the version of NLOTH that includes the Book (I think it's the box set......not sure) there's a shot of bono in which you can see that the sunglasses are "Emporio Armani". They're not the one with the stars but they look very similar in design, only it's not a star but a different draw.

Anyway it's quite probable the stars one are Emporio Armani too

Josh -- go to the link below and read the stuff right below the double picture of Bono.  It is about halfway down the page.  (Don't let the fact that they're trying to sell the Red wraparounds deter you.)  The star ones are Armani, and will be released in April, assuming site's info is reliable.

From the Bomb era, Bono's signature sunglasses are from Armani.

The bowler hat that Bono is wearing in that picture is heinous.  Please somebody grab that thing and all of his platform shoes and burn them!

The sunglasses in that picture and the ones from the Bomb era are one in the same (which aren't the ones with the stars on them) just with the empty spot on the arms filled in with a design.  They are the Emporio Armani 9285's and were at one time available in about six different colors through Armani's Product Red stuff.

The ones with the star on the side aren't available yet, though I guess they may be available to the public in a month.

Also, that pic with the bowler hat is from the Q Magazine photo shoot before the album came out.  There are also pics with Bono from that shoot wearing that hat with Police S8103 shades which were actually more interesting since Bono has been wearing Armani's almost exclusively for a while now.
