Remember those amazing ’80s sunglasses that somehow had lines but no lens? Well, apparently so did Kanye West. While getting ready to film the video for his new single “Stronger,” the hip-hop star approached famed glasses maker Alain Mikli with a framed photo of sunglasses we wanted to emulate. And the result? White plastic glasses with no lens that were featured prominently in the video and in Kanye’s performance at Sunday’s Concert for Diana — even the Princes had to take a closer look at them. Sophie Raubiet, General Manager for Alain Mikli boutiques tells PEOPLE, “this collaboration was such a positive experience for both Alain Mikli and Kanye West. It’s officially marked the beginning of future partnerships they are looking to do together.” We can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
