Morel: sunglasses for vintage admirers

Morel revisits classics from archives

The French company Morel has returned to its archive for its summer edition of classic acetate sunwear. The three models are fitted with premium mineral sun lenses, ideal for the intense sun conditions currently being experienced in Europe. Mineral glass lenses offer high quality vision and are often described as the ‘crème de la crème’ of sun lenses for their comfort, visual clarity and long-lasting colour. Above: Isidore is a timeless man’s design based on a sunglass model of the 1950s 

A very glamorous winged cat’s eye: model Roxane by Morel

Model Roxane is a collectible piece with the distinctive rhinestones and engraving at the brow and on the temple. The frame comes in this iconic tortoise tone which elegantly offsets the bright white sparkling rhinestones.
