Whether you’re shopping for an epic Christmas present (one that will induce gasps or cries of excitement), looking ahead for next season’s spring wardrobe, or on the hunt for your next collector’s item, here are 5 luxury sunglasses that have to be brought to your attention, pronto. I can go on no longer without sharing these styles with the rest of the world because they are simple show-stopping. Take a look at what styles have rendered me speechless for SS16…
1) Giorgio Armani AR6005BZ
If you love aviators or steampunk fashion, these steam goggle inspired sunnies with a sequinned side wing are a total must-have. These sparkly Giorgio Armani sunnies combine the sci-fi side wing element of typical steampunk glasses with a modern aviator style, all glammed up to the max with some show-stopping sequins. This is steampunk meets military meets Hollywood glam. Get the Giorgio Armani AR6005BZ sunglasses now, available in 2 different colours.
2) Dolce & Gabbana DG4230 ALMOND FLOWERS
Have you ever seen anything so beautiful and self-indulgent? These Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses, adorned with intricate flower detailing, are very much inspired by the Italian Renaissance; a time of complete extravagance and hedonism in culture, art and architecture. And it’s the spirit of the Renaissance which has fuelled the fire of so many Dolce & Gabbana catwalk collections. These flirtatiously floral Dolce & Gabbana DG4230 ALMOND FLOWERS are a must for SS16 a great collector’s item.
3) Prada PR31QS
Studs are back and they’re coming back with a vengeance according to Prada. If you’re a fan of the ‘gothic romance’ trend, or you just love to add a bit of punk / biker style to your spring/summer wardrobe, these Prada PR31QS sunglasses have to be next on your sunglasses hit list.
4) Roberto Cavalli RC890S
These Roberto Cavalli sunglasses are right on trend with the metallic frame and decadent look. But there’s so much more to the shades than meets the eye if you deconstruct the different design elements in further detail. You see, designer Roberto Cavalli has always created collections by taking inspiration from nature – in fact, his first ever student collection was inspired by flowers and he’s been known for creating wild print commissions for other brands too. So it’s no surprise that the Roberto Cavalli RC890S shades feature something from the wild. Serpents are a symbol of protection, which is rather fitting for sunglasses don’t you think?
5) Fendi FF 0041/S
And last but not least, we have these show-stopping Fendi FF 0041/S shades which are available in 5 completely spellbinding colours. Like a sneak peek into the future, these progressive looking sunglasses bring together bizarre geometric shapes with transparent acetate design, a stylish cat eye with eye-catching mirrored lenses. Such a futuristic style and definitely one for any designer sunglasses collector.
