The Vera Wang sunwear collection launched for the S/S season exhibits great elegance. There is an emphasis on decoration, as expected from the bridal designer who has created dresses for many female celebrities including Jennifer Lopez and Sharon Stone.

Each frame in this collection boasts stone clusters, golden accents and Swarovski crystals. Inspiration has been drawn from Wang’s jewellery range to bring an exquisite luxury to the sunglasses. Colours are subtle and feminine, with shades of merlot, iris and cabernet predominating.  www.verawang.com CN

Céline eyewear collection

by Phoebe Philo

The Celine collection is attracting some serious attention from the fashion press, owing to British designer Phoebe Philo’s involvement…but also the line has some strong, gutsy vintage shapes such as the one pictured, with clever oversized proportions which give it the glamorous yet edgy feel. And of course the look works impeccably well with the masculine chic theme of some of the images in the shoot. Apparently it’s sold out in Browns in London so good luck if you’re on a hunt for these. Anyone who’s got one and wants to send us a picture, we’d love to see how it looks….unfortunately I’ve not had these in my hands but would love to see what the details are like, the retail price in the UK is “from £180″.
