SPY Sunglasses and Richer Poorer Collaboration

SPY eyewear and Richer Poorer sock designers team up

Southern California Lifestyle Fashion

It’s a fashion partnership made in Southern California heaven. In what is being called “A Happy Collaboration from Head to Toe”, SPY, known for their surf and snow sunglasses, and designer sock creator Richer Poorer have come together on a limited edition collaboration involving their new Trancas sunglasses, as part of SPY’s premium Crosstown Collection.

“One of the things we often talk about here at Richer Poorer is elevating everyday products through quality and design, so having the opportunity to partner with a company like SPY who has a similar vision was a lot of fun,” says Tim Morse, President of Richer Poorer.

“Like socks, sunglasses tell the story of your personality and mood. We’re happy to have partnered with SPY to create a piece that’snot only fun and distinct aesthetically, but delivers on quality in every way.”

While SPY is mostly known for their surf and snow styles of eyewear, the Crosstown Collection is more of a metropolitan style. The collaboration takes SPY’s new Trancas frame and ups the style factor with a timeless pattern courtesy of Richer Poorer.

SPY and Richer Poorer Collaboration Release Party

To celebrate the release of the Crosstown Collection sunglasses, SPY and Richer Poorer held a perfectly Coastal SoCal event. The release party was held at SPY’s “Happy Camp” location in Leucadia, CA a beach town north of San Diego. You can spot Happy Camp by the orange lifeguard chair sitting out front of a large blue billboard.
