Who makes Psy's Gangnam Style sunglasses?

I decided to check up on my blog stats, and although I have a very humbling number of viewers I did notice what people were clicking on my blog for:


Everyone wants to know where they can get sunglasses just like Psy's from his Gangnam Style music video. I don't blame you, they look pretty kick ass.

So, I did some digging since Google didn't really help and searched up on Naver, a huge Korean search engine, pretty much the Google equivalent in South Korea. Since I can actually read Korean (although I don't usually like to), I thought I'd finally use those skills to use. Voila, here's what I found.



Psy's sunglasses are from French eyewear brand Thierry Lasry. I did find some discrepancy as to whether these were from Garrett Leight (probably because the two brands recently collaborated on a limited edition of sunglasses) but upon some closer inspection they're definitely from Thierry Lasry. Psy really only goes through two different styles of sunglasses and one pair of swimming goggles, but I still had to do some digging through their collections and Look Books to hunt them down.

The first is Variety 1015 from the opening scene in Psy's video, as well as in the final scenes with HyunA and the flash mob. This was found in Thierry Lasry's 2011 collection.


They do look a bit different, but I'm pretty sure they used different filters while editing the video to make the reflections stand out, which in turn changes the colours and contrast in whats on the screen.

The second pair are the all black frames he wears for the majority of the video. This one is Variety 101 which I found in Thierry Lasry's 2012 Look Book.


So.. there you have it folks. Psy's amazing sunglasses that he rocks with his horse-back riding dance. Now if you have any other questions about such things feel free to leave me a comment or two, I'd love to read them!

    1. Although the brand has made it pretty big, it's still a lesser known relatively exclusive brand so it'll be difficult to find these glasses for cheap. In a month or so you may be able to find replicas considering how crazy popular the music video has gotten, but for now I would say your best bet is to just get very circular, dark sunglasses at a thrift/vintage store. Good luck! ^^

    1. Sunglasses, also known as sun mirror, which used for shading. People’s eye adjusts the flux rely on regulation in the sun .when the light intensity of more than ability to regulate for the human eye, it will cause harm to the human eye. So in outdoor activities, especially in the summer, many people are using to block the sun visor mirror to reduce eye fatigue or adjust the light stimulation caused the damage.

  12. Sorry, not currently sure where the best place to get safety glasses online is.

    That’s interesting. This could mean one of two things:

    (1) Costco has changed its policy on purchasing glasses.
    (2) It depends which Costco sells the eyeglasses.
