What’s Poppington: Tnemnroda Eyewear

Link

Embellished eye-wear has gotten about 500% more extra than the Kanye shutter glasses from 2007, but that’s not a bad thing. Jewelry encrusted, colored lenses have started to pop up on the faces of many and Samantha Smikle is providing us with unique, fairly affordable options.

Tnemroda (pronounced Nem – row – dah) Maison grew from an idea of Smikle’s to add a chain to the side of her sunglasses. Interest in her fashion-forward creations grew enough to eventually blossom into a successful business.

Smikle’s Carribean heritage is sprinkled all throughout her handcrafted lenses. There’re even some Carnival inspired pieces.

The New York based brand is bold and unique with a positive mission statement. Smikle says that “When a woman wears Tnemnroda, I hope that she feels like an amplified version of herself–incredibly beautiful, empowered and full of fiery ambition.” Those words are plastered on the front page of the brand’s website.

Prices range from 20-$150, which isn’t much to support an entrepreneur, especially compared to a pair of $200 Raybans. I’m not even the type to pay more than $6 for some sunglasses, but I’m probably gonna cop a pair or four.
