“When it comes to statement eyewear, no one tops Kerin Rose Gold of A-Morir Studio. Her extravagant custom shades have been embraced by fashion extroverts like Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga and become an Instagram fixture. With unexpected details like ceramic flowers, pearls, and even tassels, the frames she creates are miniature works of art. Now Gold’s freshly launched collection of bridal sunglasses—yes, for weddings—takes the “something new” category to the next level.
The pieces range from whimsical (Phillip shades exploding with miniature flowers) to avant-garde (the crystal-and-pearl–covered cat-eye Lena) and appeal to daring brides as well as those whose tastes skew traditional (some pairs even come with an attached veil). “This not only gives me the opportunity to create something super-special, it gives [brides] the opportunity to have something that becomes more of a keepsake than a dress could be,” explains Gold. “There are so many things associated with weddings that you only wear once—these you can enjoy for years.”
Though she’d been asked to create special orders for brides in the past, the idea to launch a full line came to Gold after a conversation with her sister. In search of a wedding gift for a friend with minimalist style, she sought out something special. “Aesthetically, my sister and most of her friends are more in the J.Crew or Madewell category when it comes to style, and my stuff doesn’t really cater to that,” says Gold, who soon realized that even the most pared-down bride can fall in love with a bespoke piece. “Her friend wound up wearing them for the entire reception. She even wore them on her honeymoon and wouldn’t take them off!”
After what she calls her “Oprah aha” moment, Gold got to work on the collection’s pièce de résistance: round shades with crystals spelling out Wife Life. Immersed in the process of getting the look and feel just so, Gold perfected the design right before hitting a personal milestone. “By the time we were getting to the final prototype, I was like, shit, I’m getting married in nearly a month,” she recalls, nodding to her chic City Hall nuptials with DJ and producer Nick Catchdubs, which took place last week.
With her shades, vintage Mugler suit, and bright orange hair, Gold was a poster child for outside-the-box brides everywhere, but she insists you don’t have to be a style rebel to throw on a pair of wedding-day shades. “I think one of the great things about a pair of sunglasses is that it is a really safe and easy way to change your look,” says Gold. “You can put those on, take a few beautiful photos of them, take them off, and you still get to maintain that vision of yourself that you’ve always wanted. It gives you an opportunity to inject something a little extra-special into the day that you might not have previously thought about.”
Kids, they’re $650.00. Available from A-Morir Bridal.
