My friend, a very modest advertising creative (yes, there are still some of those left) who prefers to remain in anonimity, has just forwarded me a story which I considered too good to ignore: It turns out José Feliciano has just launched Reflections, a personal line of … sunglasses.
Reflections was designed by Feliciano himself and it is based on several of his famous songs. “I might be blind, but I consider myself a visionary,” the 61-year-old cantante said during a press conference where he announced the launch of Reflections.
Customers will be able to chose from several models, branded with the following names: “Señor Bolero”, “Nuestro Amor”, “Paso la Vida Pensando”, “Le, lo lai”, “Qué Será”, “I’ve Got a Feeling”, “California Dreamin”, among others.
And for those of you wondering: prices range from $180 to $300, and will come with a certificate of authenticity written in Braille, of course. (Though we still don’t know if this will be in English, Spanish, Spanglish or both).
