Despite more than one generations plagued by lackluster gross sales, Snap continues to pump out more versions of its attempt-exhausting Spectacles. But now, attributable to the free up of some restricted model Gucci-themed Spectacles 3, we’re confronted with a consuming ask. What’s worse, the contemporary Spectacles themselves, or the brief movie Snap made to promote them?
In the beginning watch, the straightforward respond is the glasses are the worst. Between the gleaming pretend-graffiti field and case that comes with the Spectacles and the injurious Gucci sample printed onto the Spectacles’ lenses, the Spectacles x Gucci collaboration is a gaudy mess attempting to masquerade as haute couture.
Alternatively, things aren’t moderately so sure after searching at Duck Duck, a brief movie made to promote the Gucci-themed Spectacles created by the ‘90s icon and Spring Breakers director Solidarity Korine (who was as soon as moreover to blame of designing the glasses).
Featuring an worn man in a hot canine costume (for sure) and a pair of psychedelic pandas traipsing spherical Miami Sea hasten, Duck Duck feels take care of a imaginative and prescient of a social media dominated dystopian future nightmare advance to existence. One plan or the opposite, even with the total in-your-face results, the circular fisheye behold captured by the Spectacles 3 manages to raise the total inanity of the project.
Sadly, for someone in actuality enamored with the glasses, these restricted model Gucci Spectacles don’t seem take care of they’ll ever slump on sale, as totally 50 have been made to protect up company with the premiere of Duck Duck closing night time at the Paintings Basel’s Miami Sea hasten demonstrate.
On the gleaming side, Snap says the total AR results and filters frail to assemble Duck Duck will be on hand for Spectacles 3 users to try themselves beginning December 6th. So while you’ve ever wished to present your individual Spring Breakers-vogue movie, now’s your chance, you’ll honest appropriate need to e book a cameo from Riff Raff your self.
But what direct you, are Snap’s contemporary glasses and movie trash, or have they advance beefy circle and turn out to be excessive art work?
