Commune de Paris has teamed up with sunglass brand Waiting for the Sun, releasing a trio of wood framed shades. The capsule collection is presented alongside the 2013 Spring/Summer collection and is composed of Commune de Paris versions of the Deux model. The wooden frames are bedecked with engraved details and offered in bright summer colours. The outer side of the frames is painted in yellow, blue, or red gloss and the lenses (Carl Zeiss) are tinted accordingly.

FY! also analyse various points of view of what an outsider is through editorials, texts and interviews with among others Ahmed Abdelrahman, Demna Gvasalia and Henrik Silvius.
