Fabulous Links: Christian Roth and Rolex Watch Bands

Christian Roth style 360 degrees in a mint that's still so fresh

Once upon a time, Christian Roth and Eric Domege created amazing eyewear—fabulosity in design inspired by their lives in the Monte Carlo and Miami style centers. And then for a brief while, they took a break...but now they're back with pop-up shops and an online shop where new and archival styles alike are available for admiration and purchase.

It's worth a visit to check out the 360 utterly iconic piece of eyewear artistry that may have inspired some timeless go-to eyewear by a designer who shall go nameless (hint: rhymes with Dom Dord).

Looking at all those delightful pieces inspired me to open the vault of my finest and favorites to share my own pair of Christian Roths...the day I those sunnies showed up on my doorstep I felt like I'd truly made it into the center of the sunglass universe. They have stood up to the style test and are still fresh after almost 10 years. When I first saw them during a product preview, Christian told be about the inspiration for the beautifully sculpted temples: the links of a vintage Rolex band.  And the purple is just fantastic...warm but metallic with just enough shine to make it work wherever in the world you may be.
