Albert Hammond Jr. / The Strokes meets Wilde Sunglasses:
A lot of good things come prior to summer time in Barcelona. It is time to see great bands playing in massive concerts. To experience great chill out times during sunset, riding your bike happily in front of the sea… Probably even better it is to share those special moments connecting with people that make you grow up and be stronger in anything you do… or that kind of moment when you laugh out loud because some unimaginable curious situation just happened…
We are very excited to present our Ws backstage 6th edition with yet another great musician. Many of you would immediately recognize him… Albert Louis Hammond III. Best known as Albert Hammond Jr. The guitarist of The Strokes.
Albert kindly received us in the backstage and has chosen our model Naako by Wilde Sunglasses.
Thanks to the Ws Team in Barcelona, Medellin, Hiroshima for the real magic!
