What glasses does Jacques Greene wear in the 212 video?

What eyeglass frames is (are?) Jacques Greene wearing in Azeelia Bank's "212" video? Still shot here. He's in the video sporadically at around 1:08 but doesn't deviate from the angle in the shot, so I don't know how much help the video will be.

Looking for Dita Senator eyeglasses

Through rose-colored glasses

A couple of years ago, I tried on a pair of women's eyeglasses with very light pink thickish rectangular frames at Lenscrafters. The arms were also fairly thick. I believe they were DKNY or Donna Karan. They also came in black. Can you help me find them? [more inside]
