Sensational Sunnies…

Elegant, Sensuous Shapes

22nd May 2015 “Summer Afternoon – summer afternoon, to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” (Said by Henry James to Mrs. Edith Wharton)

Summer days inspire poems, music and literature – leisure, sunshine, nature’s abundance and seaside pleasures all contribute to the splendour of the season. On the fashion scene, sunglasses are summer magic for the eyes. Award-winning Swedish designer Anna-Karin Karlsson loves glamour, beauty and a dab of extravagance in her gorgeous sunglasses. In the photo above, the man wears Shady, flourishing in black and gold. On the right, the marvellous When Trouble Comes to Town is magnificently expressive in its exaggerated silhouette. www.annakarinkarlsson.com

Sunshine is a natural substance in Southern California, and l.a. Eyeworks sets the scene for sunny days everywhere with “Two By Four” – a striking design in Brown Tortoise Stripe with Gunmetal. The precise construction, handcrafted in Japan, makes for a finely built two-in-one: the frame combines an ophthalmic chassis with an integrated flip-up sun clip. www.laeyeworks.com

Sunglasses That Love Summer

19th May 2015 We love sunglasses at Eyestylist, and this season the selections are particularly enticing with beautiful materials, amazing colours and striking designs. Sunglasses afford the opportunity to take risks and try something different – an ideal way to perk up the wardrobe and spirits! Kirk & Kirk’s elegant collection of sunglasses is inspired by nature and science, and includes GRACE (above), crafted in richly coloured acrylic, with graduated mirror lenses by French lens designer Christian Dalloz. A charming animal detail in nine-caret gold highlights the upswept temples. More details at www.kirkandkirk.com

Kemp

Grey Ant

The innovative Kemp by Grey Ant is another gem by Grant Krajecki and codesigner Natalie Levy. Creators of the original concept of cut-off lenses, this time the duo have worked on a totally new concept that exposes the riveted hinge on the exterior of the frame as a decorative feature. It’s a simple, luxurious statement that elevates a classic look into something ingenious and very desirable. Made in Japan, and featuring Zeiss sun lenses, these elegant sunnies are now available at www.greyant.com. CN
