Through the Eyes of Josie
Ambassador Josie Prendergast seems to always glide with a graceful cool from another space and time. When she’s out surfing, she has an effortless elegance that stands out in any lineup. And when she’s back on land, her big smile and even bigger heart make everyone feel like they're the most important person in the world. So you can imagine our excitement to work with her on a new version of Blondie - one that perfectly embodies her timeless style and Filipino roots.
“ represents my island home, my culture, my birthplace, my family, and it represents love.”
A look behind the new Blondie
For this new version of Blondie, we pulled out all the stops. We took the classic black silhouette and amplified it with a contrasting while rim and custom inner etchings - all inspired by the Sampaguita flower, which also happens to be the national flower of the Filipino homeland that she loves so much. On the temples, we created a subtle gradient to give the frame a splash of elegance. Then we finished it off with Dark Smoke Polarized lenses from Carl Zeiss Vision, creating a cat-eye that’s both approachable, modern, and impossibly cool.
