Rock Retro Comfortably With Megumi•O
Megumi Hosogai herself wears MEGUMI•O. It fits well on the Asian nose with no “cheek touch”, giving it a gorgeous look.
If you are a girl, you’ve probably heard of “cheek-touch”, the awful state of when the rims of sunglasses touches one’s cheek, often times accompanied by other annoyances like marks, sliding, sweating, and the ultimate annoyance for many, the smudging of makeup. The brand new sunglass line, MEGUMI•O solves these problems with style. It is a creation by Megumi Hosogai, a Hawaii raised entrepreneur with a cute little Asian nose who had nightmares about it since childhood. So she finally decided to do something about it herself, creating her own sunglass line.
MEGUMI•O attracts a lot of celeb fans, including Renee ‘Mob Wife’ Graziano and Isabelle Fuhrman from The Hunger Games.
The name was inspired by the, retro, Jackie O style. “Cheek-touch” mostly happens with these popular, wide-frame shades, a style Megumi dreamed of wearing comfortably. “MEGUMI•Os have a much more extended bridge. There are some out there with extensions, but the extensions made me feel handicapped for having an Asian nose or something. I wanted them to be a part of the body, in a single, sleek, flow,” she explains. Another cool factor is that her shades are polarized so you can see perfectly behind the dark lens. With Prada quality and clientele in mind, she set out to create the most comfortable, fashionable, high-end, wearer-friendly sunglasses out there on the market, and was able to achieve just that, launching her own line this spring, and already, celebrities have been spotted wearing them.
So far the shades are for girls, but a line dedicated to guys is on the way. They will also soon be available in Tortoise Shell and White frames too. MEGUMI•O can be found at MegumiO.com and in boutiques and hotels in Los Angeles and Hawaii, including Live! On Sunset, Halekulani and The Modern Honolulu.
