As Jack Frost makes an unwelcome return and the nights draw in, we are very much looking forward. Yes, we might not be Mystic Megs over here, but one thing we can predict is new launches.
We can’t help but get excited when it comes to sunnies and it seems one designer is not messing around come the New Year. Top fashion designer Carolina Herrera is set to unveil here spanking new sunglasses collection for 2017.
So before you buy some eggnog and burst into Auld Lang Syne, let us tell you about the lady behind the shades. Born in 1939, this Venezuelan-American style guru has a first class reputation for personal style. She has without doubt brought chic to the consumers and boy has it paid off.
Her own sophisticated take on fashion and style has seen her responsible for kitting out some of the most important women on the planet. That takes some doing for her designs are simply off the charts. She has dressed a number of different First Ladies including Michelle Obama.
According to the New York Times, Herrera fashion has been described as “elegant without being over fussy” This über elegance has seen Señorita Herrera climb the fashion ladder over the past few decades. Her outstanding achievements have seen her pick up a wealth of gongs namely the Gold Medal for Fine Arts by King Don Juan Carlos I. But it was not until 2011 that Carolina Herrera decided to embark on her eyewear journey.
Roll on six years and (fanfare please), here is the brand new 2017 CH Carolina Herrera collection for gents. With the sophisticated male at the heart of it, her new mens sunglasses are certainly easy on the eye. Attention to detail is of course paramount but the collection is geared towards the refined man
Sophistication not to mention masculinity play an integral role in her new eyewear collection. But if that’s not manly enough for you there is so much more.
Thanks to Herrera’s 2017 mens collection, you really have the lot from tortoise shell to gradient frames. In addition to this, you will also find just a soupçon of their signature branding in red. The line up reads as follows;
Vintage sunnies at their best which offer sleek lines and an ideal look. This is coupled with sleek metal temples ideal for the fashion conscious male.
If you can’t wait until 2017 you cannot go wrong with our classic Ray-Ban RB2140 Original Wayfarer. With a snazzy urban camouflage effect on the arms, this striking design will have Rambo reaching for a pair.
Square framed shades make a timely appearance here. Embossed with the CH red branding, you will be able to enjoy the metal detailing.

The gorgeous Gucci GG 1018S are sure to give you a similar cool edge.

BACK TO BASIC
It seems that you can really get back to basics with this next offering from CH. Cutting edge design is at its core. This is largely in part down to its circular frame which provides a three layer acetate.
This is all rounded off with metal details which can be found on the temples. For circular sunglasses, why not check out our radiant Ray-Ban RB3475Q. They are available in either matte gunmetal or matte gold.
