All eyes are on Dallas Mavericks star Tyson Chandler and his wife, philanthropist Kimberly Chandler, as they unveil Our Secret, the Chandler x Selima eyewear collection — a collaboration with Selima Optique creator Selima Salaun. The 24-piece collection of men's and women's sunglasses (plus one pair for children) runs a stylish gamut from the 1960s and 1970s, as seen on Jackie Onassis, Jane Birkin, John Lennon and Andy Warhol. But they look equally smashing today on the fashionable Chandler power couple, who sought advice from Kimberly's brother, L.A.-based freelance creative director Browne Andrews, throughout the design process. Handcrafted in Italy, each pair has UV400 lenses for ultimate protection, and a portion of the proceeds benefit the South Queens Sandy relief efforts. $175 to $350, at Forty Five Ten, Linden Wilson L ights, camera, Connexion!
