As far as sunglasses go, a quality pair can help in protecting the eyes from glare. One with a gorgeous design however, works in dressing up everyday outfits.
Here are a few designer brands that offer some snazzy eyewear.
Dolce & Gabbana’s limited edition Spain In Sicily frames take their inspiration from the traditional combs that secure the veils of flamenco dancers, while marquetry embodies the attention to detail synonymous with Italian opulence.
From rounded to square shapes, the sunglasses are made to fit different face shapes and preferences. The classic animal print detailing lends an added touch of eccentricity, as well.
Meanwhile, Prada designs offer a contemporary feel. Classic elegance and vintage inspirations blend with large, structured silhouettes. The iconic Minimal-Baroque model for example, is now enhanced with the experimental use of wood, reflecting the leitmotiv of the Prada Spring/Summer 2015 fashion show.
For Dior, the brand's Abstract sunglasses from its Autumn/Winter 2015-2016 ready-to-wear collection includes mirrored lenses and transparent tortoiseshell frames. Conceived by Raf Simons, the design is both retro and fresh at the same time.
Other brands that feature coloured lenses include RetroSuperFuture and Victoria Beckham. From the French eyewear specialist Anne et Valentin, you can get super cute and quirky round sunglasses that will surely get your some attention.
