Designer Bernhard Willhelm is well known for his madcap fashion savvy, a stylish genius that often teeters on the edge of lunacy. He's designed shades with a built-in sun visor in the past, and his latest collaboration for German eyewear label Mykita is just as conceptually out of bounds. Dipped in real gold, the Franz 24k has a silhouette inspired by the 1976 Olympics, so the coating on these limited-edition frames has winning symbolism to go with its fancy price tag. Similarly glittering is Chandelier Creative's latest collaboration with Partners & Spade, a five-piece set of solid gold toy soldiers. See their gilded playthings after the jump.
