The arrival of spring stock in stores usually signals warm weather to come (even if, this year, it feels like winter won’t ever relinquish its hold). One of 2014’s best new offerings comes courtesy of Toronto designer Philip Sparks, who recently unveiled his first optical collection in collaboration with Jordan Paul from Junction eyewear shop Optianado. Made-in-Toronto pedigree aside, the unisex glasses have a great vintage look. The rounded lenses and keyhole bridges are nearly universally flattering, and both the lenses and acetate frames come in five different colours. Our favourite? A soft yellow that helps us remember that sunny days are ahead. $295.
