Elton is known for his signature spectacles, so its no surprise that he has a bespoke collection for his new Vegas extravaganza, The Million Dollar Piano.
Women’s Wear Daily reports that the songster tapped London-based designer Anna Laub, who launched her Prism line of glasses in 2009, to do the honours. Elton had already bought a number of Laubs frames, which are known for their chic, minimal aesthetic, when he asked her to create the custom designs for his show.
Richard James was making Johns suits and his long-time friend Jo Levin is his stylist, so I worked with them and came up with some ideas to coordinate with what they were thinking, said Anna. I think we managed to strike a good balance of Elton meets Prism.
The resulting designs feature graphic, angular frames and tinted lenses, and are studded with delicate rows of crystals in shades of green, orange and white, with some crystals spelling Eltons name.
Laub plans to offer a small number of frames similar to the luminarys as part of a new limited edition collection of products that she will launch on Prisms Web site in the coming weeks.
