White Light, White Heat

“White light’s a-flashing.” Lyrics sung by the Velvet Underground in 1967 generating heat in the fashion world TODAY. White takes front and center stage in apparel and accessories and now in eyewear as the ever popular white sunglasses are joined by striking white ophthalmic frames. And why not? White’s light, it’s neutral and as the song says “White light still feels right.”
