The Prism SS12 presentation atop the Standard on Saturday was as much a treat for the taste buds as for the eyes, and not just because it involved eyewear. Guests and models (yes, them too) nibbled on hot crêpes and La Newyorkina popsicles, and if it hadn't been for the chilly drizzle that very morning, it might have felt like summer all over again. Optically, the London-based designer Anna Laub has bold yet minimalist frames in store for spring, with vixenish cat eyes for women and squarer frames for men. But swimwear also falls under the domain of this Brit, whose models lounged around in bright tangerine and gem-colored bathing suits as they soaked up the sun. See the collection and find out about Anna's mood board, her all-time favorite popsicle flavor and more!
