When is a cool sunglass not just a cool sunglass? When it’s part of Prada’s newest Manga Contest, which challenges comic book designers and illustrators (and us mere mortals if you dare) to design a comic strip where the heroine wears the latest jazz-inspired Prada Swing Sunglasses. Submissions are taken through August 31st at Prada.com. The Italian fashion house is known for its collaborations with architects, directors, photographers and the like, but Prada and comic book illustration? That sure hits a new chord.
Sunglasses will retail for $245.
