Anna Laub has been in the fashion industry a long time…and she’s come a long way from her days as a teen model. The girl has worked with all the key players: Hussein Chalayan, Conde Nast, The New York Times: T Magazine, The LA Times… the list goes on. The London-bred, girl-about-town has tried her hand at everything from editing mags—she founded the youth culture mag, PURE—to writing for a wide variety of notable publications. Her most recent endeavour? PRISM, her covetable line of eyewear and swimwear. After being fed-up of not being able to find “cool, optical glasses,” Laub set out to make ‘em herself. You know what they say? If you want something done right, do it yourself! Each pair is inspired (and named after) a different city; and we must say, we’re big fans of Tokyo and Rio! Aside for being picked up by Barney’s, Opening Ceremony, Colette and Dover Street Market, Laub recently collaborated with cult-fave Rachel Comey, providing the eyewear for her N.Y.C show. Talk about spectacle! And she’s got a damn good eye for style. Her love for leopard had us seeing spots for days… but, to be honest, we weren’t complaining. But the real pièce de résistance? Her Alaïa collection. Cher Horowitz would be mega jealous… just saying.
