Photographs by Melissa Arkin

Dateline: Tel Aviv
— So 20/20 Editor Melissa Arkin disappears on a two week vacation to Israel. She tries to soften the blow of such a long stretch of days off by promising to take some pictures of eyewear on people with her new Leica given to her by Karl Lagerfeld. Hey, I’m not making any of this up. She returns with amazing portraits. The eyewear and sunwear is equally stunning.The wearers know exactly how and what to wear. Look for Part 2 with some style commentary from Melissa next month.
