The coolest eyewear of the season- brought to you by the coolest will.i.am

I love wearing sunglasses, because the sun is really so bright that it hurts my eyes if I don’t have any protection. I have more than 15 pairs of sunglasses at home, but only 3 brands in total. I have to confess that  I’m a loyal fans to Rayban- I’ve got more than 7 pairs of Raybans in 3 styles. It is quite hard to tempt me to buy sunglasses made by other brands..however just recently, when i learnt about the optics line that Will.i.am was about to launch, I had a sneakpeek of the actual products before the launch, it did tempt me to get a pair… Naming his first eyewear collection III.I Optics , (check out the website for th...
