Rose-colored glasses are out. Sunglasses filtered with a color palette reminiscent of a Wes Anderson movie are in, at least according to "filter sunglasses brand" Tens.
Spectachrome is a new and limited edition lens filter inspired by the distinct colour palettes of Wes Anderson films such as “Moonrise Kingdom”, “The Royal Tenenbaums” and “Hotel Chevalier”...
Experience a view that transports you to a whimsical world of vintage cinema and celluloid film, a place you’ll want to revisit time and time again. At first glance, the lens may appear to look primarily orange but whilst looking through it, it offers a far wider colour spectrum than what initially meets the eye. Wearing Spectachrome feels like walking into a scene of a sun-bleached 1970’s postcard.
Tens is currently crowdfunding these Spectachrome sunglasses ($87/pair).
