I was approached by the team at Sicky Eyewear to review one of their incredibly cool and stylish pair of shades, and of course I said yes. I'm loving them hard and after only a couple of days, I've had quite a few people ask me where they were from and how they could get a pair, too.
Creator John Hildebrand was a photographer first and created Sicky eyewear when he felt disconnected from the brands of sunglasses he was seeing on store shelves. He set up studio in his Malibu garage and created his brand, using his nickname—Sicky. The rest, as they say, is history. (Well, let's just add here that Sicky creates the highest-quality eyewear on the market, and they're made in Japan.)
"Born and designed in Malibu, then meticulously handcrafted in Japan, our point-of-view is uniquely our own but our vision is shared by all creative underdogs. Bold design. Tirelessly refined production processes. Independent. No compromises."
It seems that everyone is loving Sicky eyewear, too—they're on the faces of every celebrity and model out there, from Jennifer Lopez to Gigi Hadid and even Justin Bieber and Hayden Christensen. Basically, they are everywhere. Yes, they're definitely the shades to be rocking this summer—anywhere you are. Just check out SICKY'S World on Instagram to see more gorgeous people rocking these shades.
It was a really tough choice deciding which pair to go with, but in my classic style, I chose a pair I knew I'd love: the S11 Black Tortoise. These shades sell for $220.00. And I love them!
By the way, you may be wondering where the name Sicky comes from. Hildebrand says: "To me, SICKY means freedom of expression. No barriers, no worries.... it means aggression. It means passion It means hard work. It means full-of-life. Sick means being proud of your individuality and who you are as a person."
Now this is a company I can stand behind—I love the concept, and I love the glasses. If you have any questions on my shades or want to find out more, feel free to contact me.
Thank you, Sicky Eyewear, for bringing me into your cool world and giving me a new pair of sunnies to fall in love with. These are my new favourite pair of sunglasses.
