Spring is in the air and that means the sun is gonna shine…eventually. When it does, be sure you’re protecting your peepers with the right seasonal sunglasses. Here are some of our favourite newcomers.
For the season ahead, major fashion houses are finally taking the first tentative steps away from the aviator trend that has dominated our faces for the past 36 months.
While you’ll still see aviator styling in the new collections (something that’s only going to be bolstered by the release of the second Top Gun film), we’re also seeing more timeless structure and masculinity in the spring and summer lines for 2020, and that’s great news for guys with fuller faces who don’t want to attempt a Maverick. Oversize cat’s eye styling that was popular in the 1960s is also firmly back, as are brow bars, and forget funky colours, those are so 2019!
Stylish and understated, the new Nike Lores are presented in matte dark grey, black or grey acetate and sit comfortably as a segue between sporty and formal. Lightweight yet sturdy, the temple arms of these new shades ensure an optimal fit and stability.
New from Calvin Klein, the CK195252 – we guess they’ve given up giving model lines cool names these days – in black, offer a modern take on a timeless style. Masculine rectangular frames with double-gradient flat lenses offer a sleek, structured look that’s accentuated by a straight keyhole bridge.
From its new Paris Collection, Lacoste’s L218SPC offer minimalism and modern allure in a new ultra-thin and ultra-light shape. A sleek cut-out motif characterizes the slim temples and adds further refinement to the double-bridge design, which is fitted with premium ZEISS lenses enhanced with a violet anti-reflective coating. Available in Matte Gunmetal, Matte Dark Gunmetal, Gold and Light Gold.
Not to be left out, watch brand Omega has teamed up with Italy’s Marcolin Eyewear to create a range of high-end shades for the northern summer months. Inspired by Omega’s heritage, you’ll find shades constructed with materials found in its iconic timepieces, as well as subtle design accents, including bezel grooves lining frames in silver and gold.
We’re sure you’ll be looking to the new James Bond movie No Time to Die for seasonal style tips. Keep a lookout for the Barton Perreira 007 Norton Sunglasses, which are said to have been personally picked by Daniel Craig for his last time in the saddle. Each signature 007 pair is handmade in Japan with chestnut tortoise frames, 007 logos, and a limited-edition presentation box.
