“Hidden beneath the world we know is the world they inhabit.. they’re hackers,” is how iconic American movie trailer voice Don LaFontaine introduced 90s hyperkinetic cyberpunk techno- thriller, HACKERS. If the handles Cereal Killer, Phantom Phreak, or Crash Override appeared on your computer screen, you were beyond saving – consider yourself hacked. Released in 1995, the Lain Softley-directed cult classic still lives rent free in our minds as we daydream about rollerblading through New York by day and riding the information highway by night. While we have left floppy disks behind, the throbbing Underworld and Prodigy filled soundtrack, photogenic misfit cast and Roger K Burton-imagined costumes feel as relevant now as they did almost three decades ago. Inspired, LN-CC shoots this season’s hottest sunglasses on our very own Zero Xool and Acid Burn.
“There is no right and wrong, there's only fun and boring,” proclaims former hacker turned computer security expert Eugene "The Plague" Belford in one of Hackers’ most iconic lines. All fun and oh so right, LN-CC must-have sunglasses edit includes Balenciaga’s oversized butterfly frames, Gucci’s embellished cat eyes, Moncler x Gentle Monster’s swipe encouragers, District Vision’s technical wraparounds, Jacquemus’ easy peelers and more.
While the pandemic pressed pause on our 2020 and 2021 realities, our 2022 vision sees the power in dressing up, going out and having fun, Reach for these shades and you’ll see the world you want to see.
