Hip-hop icon Slick Rick teamed up with GRAMMY Award winner will.i.am to create a limited edition eyewear collection — and the results are pretty amazing. The unisex collection comes in three different variations: electric purple, glossy black, and matte crystal gray.
The hip-hop singer combines his legendary style and swagger with will.i.am’s futuristic approach in first installment of ill.i Optics’ ongoing series of artist collaborations. These aren't just normal sunglasses; the Slick Rick x will.i.am collaboration draws inspiration from vintage silhouettes and classic hip-hop aesthetics.
"Music and fashion have always been parallel, and both are my true passions," said Slick Rick. "[This collection] represents our vision for the next level of fresh, fly and classic eyewear.”
Jessica Alba has already been seen rocking these modern sunglasses out-and-about. Retailing for $340, the sleek sunnies are designed in the Los Angeles offices, and hand finished in Italy for exceptional quality.
These limited edition sunglasses will be available for purchase on March 20th. See the official website for more details.
