Antonio Banderas, who has already blessed us with appearances in Interview with the Vampire, The Mask of Zorro, and, most importantly, Spy Kids, is now channeling his talents into a different mode of expression: design.
On Thursday, the actor released a line of reading glasses, sunglasses, wallets, phone cases, and candles on the new online platform Starlite Shop, which is, as the Hollywood Reporter reports, basically a fun place where celebrities can sell stuff.
A few highlights: this Antonio Banderas scented candle, which we assume smells good because we assume Antonio Banderas smells good, and these Antonio Banderas reading glasses, which aren’t as cool as his reading glasses from Spy Kids, but they’re close.
Honestly, the phone cases seem worth it for the box alone.
This might seem like a random move for Banderas, but it’s years in the making. In 2015, he began design classes at Central Saint Martins in London, and in 2016, he released his first line of menswear with Selected Homme. Candles were just the logical, fragrant next step.
Although U.S. shipping is not yet available (sorry), European Banderas fans can don their Banderas glasses and enjoy their Banderas candles now. Preferably while watching Spy Kids.
