Brighten Your Sun Style

Sunnies to Enhance Your Summer Spirit

22nd July 2015 The holiday season is upon us, and along with swimwear, sandals and suntan cream, the accessory with the maximum impact…is sunglasses. Götti Switzerland has created Limited Edition sunglasses to mark the 68th Festival del Film Locarno 2015. The frames purposely reflect the era of great cinema legends. The contemporarily interpreted butterfly shape of the women’s sunglasses (above) is reminiscent of those made for icons Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn. The men’s design pays tribute to film luminaries Cary Grant and Richard Burton. The sunglasses are available in black with gold mirrored lenses, which discreetly mirror the Pardo in Locarno, the symbol of the film festival. Only fifty pairs have been produced, and each model is numbered and one of a kind. www.gotti.ch

Austrian brand Silhouette Eyewear recommends that the principle of quality standards sought for sun protection products should be exactly the same for sunglasses. Opt for lenses with UV-400 protection+, as featured in Silhouette’s elegant Allure sunglasses above. Fit is extremely important, and Silhouette suggest checking that the frames fit snugly without pressure on your ears, and that they don’t slip down your nose. You want to look stylish and be comfortable too! www.silhouette.com

Soupcan by Tavat
Soupcan by Tavat

Inspiration comes in many different guises and TAVAT, the American eyewear company has launched an innovative frame “SoupCan.” The idea originated when designer Norman Schureman visited a friend in Arizona, who constructs  and races planes, and Schureman noticed an old poster on a hanger wall. The goggles in the poster reminded Norm of a soup can, and thus started the voyage to create frames in a new concept, while complimenting the current trends of weight and rounded eyes. “SoupCan” is available in round and panto shapes, crafted under the experienced and professional eyes of Italian artisans. www.tavat-eyewear.com JG
