In Last Thing You Bought, celebrities and tastemakers take In The Know through some of their most recent purchases.
Ashley Benson has long been an arbiter of style.
The actress, who became a household name during her seven seasons as Hanna Marin on “Pretty Little Liars,” is a front row fixture during fashion weeks and is constantly upping the game when it comes to her effortlessly cool street style.
Benson, 30, started bringing her style expertise to the masses as a co-founding partner of the affordable eyewear company, Privé Revaux, which launches several luxury capsule collections with celebrities like Adriana Lima, Madelaine Petsch and Olivia Culpo.
The brand’s latest capsule collection, Benzo x Bomer, comes in the form of its first-ever joint collaboration between Ashley Benson and fellow actor Matt Bomer. Benzo x Bomer features five completely unisex frame designs and was born out of an idea that Benson had during Pride Month last year.
“It was probably a year ago in Pride month for me, and I was like, ‘I’ve had my own collection with the brand, and we’ve had a ton of amazing talent that we’ve gotten to collaborate with, but what if we did a line that was gender-neutral, with a guy?'” Benson told In The Know during a recent interview. “It’s the first time that we’ve ever been able to co-design something, and we were throwing out names and I’d always been a big fan of Matt’s work, and he’s just the perfect guy to do it with, so we reached out and he said absolutely. We created this line together that’s really fun. They’re not too girly; they’re very neutral.”
“The shapes fit both guys and girls in the best way and complement everyone’s features,” she added of the Benzo x Bomer collection. “Pick a pair, and it’ll be perfect.”
Ahead of Privé Revaux’s latest capsule collection launch on August 20, In The Know caught up with Ashley Benson, where she took part in our new “Last Thing You Bought” recurring feature and revealed which pair of sunglasses will “always” be her go-to frames.
