Robert Verdi to Launch Luxe Lenses on HSN

By  February 16, 2012

Robert Verdi has a packed resume and references that any fashion figure would kill for. He’s sold his jewelry in high-end department stores from Bloomingdale’s to Bergdorf Goodman and acts as a stylist and interior decorator for stars like Eva Longoria, Hugh Jackman, and Bethenny Frankel. Whether or not you know his work, you know his trademark: a fabulous pair of shades, perfectly perched atop his head.

Now, Verdi is bringing his affinity for eyewear to a television set near you. “Every woman deserves a wardrobe of sunglasses as dynamic as she is,” Verdi said. “So I’m thrilled to bring my first sunglass collection to HSN and help style-savvy shoppers feel fabulous for any occasion.”

While you may not be able to afford a $355 pair of shades from The Row or a $350 pair from Givenchy, you can capitalize on Verdi’s high-end styles for a low-end price of $40 or less. “Every woman should have a wardrobe of sunglasses to wear with different outfits,” the former Fashion Police host said. “Sunglasses are the perfect way to add a trendy flare to your style, and make everyone feel like a movie star, no matter what else you’re wearing. That’s why I’m bringing these sunglasses to HSN at a great price.”

Verdi doesn’t skimp on the variety, either. He’s got everything from cat eye shades and aviators, to tortoise shell frames and retro styles. “For every activity in a woman’s life, there is a certain look she puts out there: what she wears hanging out with friends is different from what she wears to drop the kids off at school, or what she wears to work. And, it’s all certainly different to what she wears on a date with her future or current husband,” Verdi said. “In every one of those situations, sunglasses give her the opportunity to be alluring, mysterious or seductive, because they can play to your mood and compliment your outfit at the same time.”

All you ladies with a shade-y splurge in mind, get your wallets — and your remotes — ready. Verdi and his sunglasses will make their HSN debut on February 22 and 23 and are available at HSN.com.
