Eyewear essentials for warm & sunny climes

Dreary, cold, damp winter days bring thoughts of warm, tropical environments; a sunny ambience: rest, relaxation, and fun! Fashion designers salute and celebrate the Resort/Cruise season with stunning outfits, and eyewear creators ensure ensembles are memorably complete with glamorous sunglasses. Treat yourself to new and ravishing sun specs with exceptional quality; tech-savvy materials; sleek styling; and glorious colours. American designer Zac Posen launches new sun styles that include Dolly (top image), a charming and appealing acetate cat eye with trendy narrow proportions in Peach fade – a colour that harmonises with a glowing suntan. www.kenmarkeyewear.com
