Amy Winehouse Honored with a Rockstar-Inspired Sunglass and Watch Collection

Updated

Four years after Amy Winehouse‘s untimely death, the singer is being remembered in the recently-released documentary, Amy (which soared in the U.K. box office). Her legacy is also the inspiration behind a new capsule collection from the sunglass/watch/optical brand, Chilli Beans.

The Brazilian company is known for its funky styles, affordability and rock ‘n’ roll roots thanks to the brand’s founder, Caito Maia. His goal is to make “fashion and music deeply entwined,” hence, this capsule titled “Rock Fellas.” It’s a limited-edition line (about 50 pieces of each style will be released nationwide) with Amy Winehouse and The Ramones serving as inspiration.

The Winehouse pieces, which include glasses and watches, were designed to coincide with the documentary by paying tribute to her big hits. One pair celebrates her breakout album (which also earned her five Grammys), Back to Black, with the name scrawled onto the side of the frames as well as her hit single “Rehab.” They also recreated her signature cat-eye frames in a pair of opticals and sunglasses (as seen in the first photo above).

“We’re honored to be the first to bring accessories collections for both of these revolutionary rock icons,” said Maia in a statement.

This isn’t the only posthumous collection to be announced recently. In July M.A.C. cosmetics announced its multi-product limited-edition collection remembering the late Tejano music star Selena Quintanilla, which is set to launch in the latter part of 2016.

The Chilli Beans collection hits shelves today and is available in any of the eight U.S. retail stores and online at chillibeans.com.
