Now You Can Really Be Cockeyed.

Brandish reports on what may be an upcoming trend in sunglasses: asymmetry. These “Occhiali” from Italian firm Sugarkane are just regular sunglasses with a permanent half-wink as well as lenses that go dark in sunlight. (As seen in many prescription glasses.)

They’re probably expensive – the website suggests emailing for a price – but I think there’s something to them. Can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something appealing about the slight touch of asymmetry to a product traditionally symmetrical – without going off the early-’80s-Pizza-Hut-Back to the Future deep end.

Of course, I’m not sure I want to see, say, a laptop with one half of the screen wider than the other. But it would look futuristic.
