Full disclosure: we’ve harbored a not-so-secret crush on Jason Schwartzman ever since his Rushmore days more than a decade ago. We know, we know…in movie star time, which is kind of like dog years, that’s practically forever. But thanks to flicks like Bored to Death, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom AND a side gig modeling for Band of Outsiders, our obsession is still in full-throttle mode, and now it’s taken up a notch with his new design project. The actor has created a style of glasses for the online eyewear boutique Lookmatic, putting his adorably eccentric spin on classic vintage frames. Dubbed the “Uncleanord” after a pair of specs he received from his Uncle Leonard (get it?) when he was a kid, the revamped ’50s-inspired shape comes in black, olive, and clear prescription styles as well as a sunglasses version.

The collab marks the first of Lookmatic’s new parternship with 5 “visionaries” who will lend their creative juices to the brand. Along with Jason Schwartzman, the company just rolled out a pink “Patti Goes to Paris” style, inspired by Patti Smith and designed by TenOverSix creative director Kristen Lee. Each pair is $130, and expect more designs to roll out in the near future. Jason Schwartzman’s edition might TECHNICALLY be for dudes, but we have a feeling they’d look just as cute on girls, too. Jason’s modeling the specs himself on the Lookmatic website, so what are you waiting for? Get your daily dose of (literal) eye candy here!
