Fashion is an unspoken language being used by people for the longest time to express, to call for attention or simply to narrate. It has the capacity to being altered according to the preference of the person and to being divided into a plethora of genres to suit the many palates.
Though most people aim to look attractive and presentable in a tasteful manner, there are some who use fashion to stand out in a crowd. The square pegs in the round holes who doesn’t seek to ‘fit in’ according to the standards of the ‘fashionable’. The eccentrics at heart, the free spirits whose fashion is as unique as themselves. They dress up to give us a glimpse into the worlds of their own. Sometimes decked in their glorious quirkiness, other times they use simple ‘mechanisms’ like a pair of glasses to narrate their being.
If you’re an ally of this genre then allow us to take you on a ride to show some of the most unconventional and electric of eyewear.
Tiny and the Timeless
Helena Bonham Carter isn’t just the ‘Queen of Hearts’ but also the ‘Queen of Quirk’. Her distinctive quirk adds a timelessness to both the characters she plays by bringing them to life and to her unique fashion sensibilities. The tiny dark sunglasses with a metal frame which she wore in The Sweeney Todd are undeniably one of her best looks. Nevertheless they are a spellbinding pair of sunglasses!
Check out a pair from totallook DW060 to sport a similar quirky look.
High On Hexagon
Robert Downey Jr is bold, sophisticated and eccentric, perhaps which is the reason why he gives the ‘real life Tony Stark’ vibes. He is always seen combining classic staples with eccentric statement pieces making his style irresistible. The hexagon shaped glasses he wore above are a brilliant narration of his style – a classic dark coloured frame with six facets.
