Oakley’s hallmark Frogskin sunglasses gets a bit of a makeover for Tokyo’s the POOL Aoyama concept store, which we reported on last month. In keeping with Tetsu Nishiyama’s “OLIVE” theme for this season, the frame has been retouched with a rich matted green hue throughout the body and wings. This is offset by a subtle tonal lenses in a pale ‘Moss’ color. Altogether Nishiyama adds a mature flair to a silhouette that has, admittedly, been otherwise paired with one too many flip-flops and cargo shorts. Enjoy a look at this fresh iteration above, then check out more items from the shop at this link.

The third and final installment of the Arnette Musicians series brings us two-piece punk rock band The Bots from Glendale, California. Teenage brothers Mikaiah and Anaiah Lei make up the band, with Mikaiah in charge of vocals and guitar while Anaiah holds it down on the drums. Having recorded their first album at the ages of 12 and 15 respectively, The Bots have since continually refined their raw sound and garage rock image, with the brothers’ unassuming physical statures belying the intense energy they channel into their music and live sets. Proudly professing to a wide range of musical tastes, including arguing the merits of Britney Spears and Madonna’s pop sounds, The Bots are very much attuned to the cool factor of rock bands. An integral part of any look are the shades that sit on the face of many a rock star, although they themselves avoid wearing eyewear on the stage for fear of accidentally stepping on them. Check out the rest of The Bots’ discography here, and head over to Arnette for the full product range.
