ABSOLUTE MUST HAVES BEFORE SUMMER ENDS!
There is one accessory that rules them all; sunglasses! The end of summer is nigh, and it is time to be bold and end the season with a stylish bang! Trade in the '90s micro shades we all cherished last year for this year’s bigger and bolder trends. Stylish and wearable shapes are looking to be the way forward, so, get chunky, indulge in glitters and look for an overflow of embellishment with sepia-tinged lenses.
Haven’t got yourself a pair of statement shades yet? Panic not, for the likes of Burberry, Dolce & Gabanna, Versace, Emporio Armani, Giorgio Armani and Vogue Eyewear have your sunnies sorted.
TOP PICKS FOR MEN & WOMEN
A new twist on the classics with this oversized butterfly frame featuring a gold-plated Monogram motif from Burberry. Celebrating the brand’s heritage through a distinctly modern lens and featuring the new signature house code of interlocking TB initials in tonal shades of Burberry beige.
Time to make a statement! A shield frame with a double-mirror lens featuring the refreshed Burberry logo. Go bold and futuristic with the black nylon fibre frame with brown mirrored lenses featuring a silver Burberry logo.
DOLCE & GABANNA
Looking to turn heads? A large, sensual mask lens from Dolce & Gabbana, entirely screen-printed with a gunmetal-coloured damask pattern on a gold background embellished with a finely crafted, delicate Baroque lace frame.
Have you got logo vision? Dolce & Gabbana’s logo dominates these “full black” mask glasses. Following street style trends, the logo, which features bold white rubber characters, is the standout feature on the frame front, emphasized by the DG initials on the temples.
For him and her. This Versace unisex style features a removable leather wrap bridge with a gold-tone Medusa stud. The temples feature a Barocco motif. The model is available in two variations: gold frame with black temples, details and gray lenses, or gold frame with white temples, details and light gray mirror silver lenses.
Bigger, better and even more futuristic! An edgy frame characterizes this men’s model. The rimless shield features striking side lenses, a flat metal wraparound bar and temples that boast a laser engraved Versace logo motif. This model comes in two colours: gold with brown mirror lenses, or black with gray lenses and gold accents.
The return of over sized aviators, but with a twist. Light aviator sunglasses with a complex construction: the lenses are set in a metal trim that runs parallel with the frame. The lenses bear the eagle, the iconic Emporio Armani logo, giving the glasses a fresh, new feel.
Time to add a pop of colour with Emporio Armani! These contemporary, urban and futuristic sunglasses feature an intriguing high wavy bridge whilst also featuring irregular oversized lenses with a strong colour contrast and transparent nylon detail at the top.
These sophisticated ultra-light sunglasses, presented at the spring-summer 2019 Giorgio Armani fashion show, combine contemporary glamour with the timeless aesthetic of the Giorgio Armani style. The “Giorgio Armani” signature takes centre stage, extending right across the ultra-light metal front piece to give the oversized round frame an extra touch of personality and uniqueness.
Time for some bold upgrades. These men’s sunglasses, showcased at the spring/summer 2019 Giorgio Armani fashion show, are typical of the Giorgio Armani style. Their design encapsulates many of the brand’s hallmarks with its eclectic simplicity, touch of modern elegance and retro flavour.
Born in the 90’s and headed straight for the future, Vogue Eyeware’s new generation of glamor dazzles in style. Redefining a trend leader, cut-off rims and an extended lateral profile give this super-slim 90’s-inspired shape a futuristic edge, while contemporary frame-lens color combos juxtapose catwalk transparencies. Get yourself a pair of these uber-glam total black and heritage havanas with trending solid lenses and sparkling Swarovski crystals for must-have fashion allure and a premium look and feel.
Let’s get catty! Fusing this year’s hottest trends, Vogue Eyeware’s new metal interpretation of the cat- eye is all about attitude. Revisiting retro-chic femininity with 90’s-inspired rebel attitude, this petite frame scales-down full metal style with exclusive Gigi Hadid appeal. From candy puff to full-on metal tones, colourful rim profiles and trending saturated shades reinvent vintage design with contemporary appeal.
With the end of summer fast approaching, treat yourself and pick up a new pair…or two.
