Is there anything potter, designer, and author Jonathan Adler can’t do? We’ve already seen him conquer home decor and handbags, but now he’s venturing into the world eyewear just in time for summer. His debut collection of eyeglasses and sunglasses just launched today, so we chatted him up about the new collection and what’s next.

SHEfinds: Why eyewear? Why now?

Jonathan Adler: I’m obsessed with eyewear. Eyewear is glamour. Eyewear is style. Glasses can make or break a guy or girl, so I’m excited to be playing in this world. It fits my world perfectly – I’m always looking for a new canvas for my favorite colors, patterns, and silhouettes.

SF: What inspired the collection?

JA: Each piece is named after one of my favorite jet set locations–Acapulco, Capri, Waikiki, Positano, Palm Beach, and Santorini. Eyewear can transport you–put on a pair of oversized shades and you’re suddenly Jackie O in Capri instead of en route to your in-laws in Topeka (no offense to Topeka).

SF: What’s the most flattering sunglasses shape for most women?

JA: A cat-eye, like our Positano, softens an angular face and provides angles to a round face – it’s eyewear magic.

SF: Do you have a favorite style from the collection?

JA: I like the Capri. It’s oversized, a little vintage, a little modern, and just chic, chic, chic.

SF: What’s next for Jonathan Adler?

JA: More, more, more. The more I make the more I want to make.
