Trends Under The Sun For Children

Tangy Orange Sorbet Frames from EK

31st May 2012 Emmanuelle’s Khanh’s sunglasses are bursting with joy and cheer – the bright orange colour has enormous child appeal. So does the shape. Small, round forms are a favourite with the young set (and their parents too!) so this design (style 1507) allows kids to feel very cool – and the shape is ideal for little faces. EK frames are handmade in France, and the quality and beauty of the acetate is assured. More stunning EK frames can be seen at www.emmanuellekhanhparis.com JG

My Favourite Sunglasses

Matthias Busche and Sarah Settgast choose their Favourite Sunglasses

9th May 2012 “The sunglass styles Mariann and Luki are the ‘must-haves’ this summer”, says Sarah Settgast, Baroness of Design at Framers Eyewear in Berlin. Mariann reflects perfectly the current ‘zeitgeist’ with a touch of the past. I have in mind the streets of Paris in the 1950’s, the beautiful little cafes, couples in love, the sun is shining……..I love to wear Mariann in bright strawberry red!

“For Matthias, Earl of Eyewear, the perfect match is Luki in a smokey grey colour. I think this frame is a statement for the adventurous man who knows what life is all about – a mixture of traditional and contemporary design.
