by Stephen Garner

stampdL.A.-based menswear brand Stampd has teamed up with Japanese eyewear brand A.D.S.R. on a new accessories drop.

Available Saturday, December 16, the collaboration features two exclusive sunglass colorways, matte black and silver, and will be available in a limited quantity of 150 units at and Stampd’s flagship boutique at 130 S. La Brea in Los Angeles for $325.

Named after jazz trumpeter Edward Lee Morgan, The Morgan – one of A.D.S.R.’s top styles – originally launched as part of a larger collection influenced by the Jazz Era. The design features a squared, tear-drop frame with zero curve flat lenses which, unlike standard curved lenses, sharply reflect light to make an unprecedented impression. The frame is then finished in metal while the temples are constructed from metal and acetate.

“The collaboration uses this frame as its canvas, then our team went to work mixing colorways consistent with our own brand aesthetic,” said Chris Stamp, creative director of Stampd. “We’ve delivered collections in the past coined with 130, the street address of our Los Angeles boutique where a lot of the BTS creative work happens. I already wear this style every day and wanted to keep the style name true to A.D.S.R, so we infused our own DNA into the style name and the Morgan 130 was brought to life.”
