Lizzo had teamed up with Australian sunglasses brand Quay to put out an important message. Quay x Lizzo have partnered with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF) and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law to lift barriers to voting in the US in correlation with the launch of their second line of accessories.  “Quay x Lizzo stands for representation for all,” the press release states. “Together, Quay and Lizzo are empowering their communities to use their voices and exercise their right to vote this election year.”


“The American people deserve to feel seen and we deserve a government that reflects our beautiful diverse country and ideals.” Lizzo said in a press release, “Voting is a big way to contribute and to feel like we’re making a change. But the power of voting in midterm and local elections wasn’t something I was taught in school. I want to be part of informing future generations of our power . . . Representation is important to me. It helps people feel seen. It celebrates diversity. The American people deserve to feel seen and we deserve a government that reflects our beautiful diverse country and ideals.”

The collection includes a bedazzled pair of cat-eyes, oval-shaped purple-and-pink lucite sunnies, and a blacked-out pair of aviators. The glamorous sunglasses are set with blue-light lenses, ombré lenses, frosted chains, a cute “Vote” face mask, and a lot of bling so you can look good while voting at the polls this November. Most of the items in the collection range from $55 to $65. But there is also three limited-edition sunglasses for $125, embellished with real crystals. As part of the campaign, Quay will donate $100,000 to help fund LDF’s Prepared to Vote initiative to protect voting rights and to support Black political engagement and the Lawyers’ Committee’s Election Protection program.
