originalThere’s a saying in pop-culture society that goes, “The Shade Is Real”.

No pun intended, this weekend’s Afropunk fest offered the most eclectic styles of ‘real’ shades we’d ever seen. Sunshine and Afro-edgy vibes fixed in the perfect mix for us to capture Afropunk’s Hottest Eyewear! Yet as we conversated amongst guest, surprisingly most had no idea who their shades were by. Is this the sign of society’s breaking point from the pretentious, label-whoring carnivores that we once were?  Or was it merely the low-key, modest, and free-spiritedness of the Afropunk army?

You’ll decide. Catch our shades scoop below:
