VIBE // TRANSITIONAL PIECES FOR TRAIL- BLAZING WOMEN

There seems to be a big focus on sunglasses in Austin and with the weather today, it's easy to see why. What sets Hoiden apart from the rest is the dark color palette of its glasses. That palette extends throughout the store. But they still never loose sight of their femininity, their celebration of womanhood. As women, our personalities are multi-faceted and nuanced, the owner said, so the point of view of Hoiden is exactly that. It is edgy, sophisticated, womanly, and sexy. They have what you need, but also exactly what you want. This store could be in LA or NYC, but the owners always take into account the background of Austin when choosing pieces from around the world. The pieces are for a day like today in Austin when you never want to go home.
