Although some wear them all year round, it’s the arrival of spring that really invites us to use them. Sunglasses, in addition to protecting our eyes from sun’s rays, are a real must have for the summer. This year, we will be spoilt for choice! Each style is original and every season designers propose new shapes and details to impress and at the same time conquer the attention of those in search of the right sunglasses to show off until next autumn.
Many were the sunglasses on the catwalks, from the most traditional to 2.0 ones. Gucci looks at the past with retro shapes and transparent frames or with the legendary aviator model in an unusual blue shade. A philosophy also shared by Tod’s which reinterprets this great classic with shades inspired by a romantic sunset.
Oversized and rounded shapes catch our attention at Roberto Cavalli, Bottega Veneta and Emporio Armani, ranging from pink or strictly total black shades.
To inspire Stella McCartney and Calvin Klein proposals is the sports world. Among shield styles, mirrored lenses and performing frames, designers play with contrasts by pairing them with ultra-feminine dresses.
Elongated shapes and strong colours are the secret weapons of brands such as Max Mara and Marni, while Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton remind us of films like The Matrix or X-Men with mirrored and colourful, pointed shape mini sunglasses, worthy of a real superhero.
Finally, some designers reinvent the codes of their fashion houses through sunglasses: Versace chooses archival prints, Moschino opts for silhouette of yesteryear and rock inspired chains and Dolce & Gabbana dares a style that pays tribute to the brand’s logo.
