Sunglasses boutique Ilori is sponsoring Shakespeare in the Park this summer, so naturally they've come up with a theatrical tie-in. The boutique asked Thakoon Panichgul and Thierry Lasry to each design a pair of glasses inspired by the festival's line-up: Thakoon got "Twelfth Night," and Lasry got "The Bacchae" by Euripides. It all sounds very Project Runway, and we can't say that we would have been able to guess which set of shades matched which play if Fashion Week Daily hadn't informed us—but we do like the results. Both pairs are available at Ilori's Soho store, at $320 for Thakoon's designs and $365 for Lasry's.
