This season, the sunglasses market is saturated with a mélange of colorful frames and mirrored lenses. Free of clunky acetate details, these styles are both lightweight and durable; an important detail for those who have a summer packed with jet set intentions.
Art aficionados will have a soft spot for RETROSUPERFUTURE’s red Ultracandy style ($565, MoMa Design Store), a part of the brand’s second collection in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation. The designs in this range were playfully adapted from sketches that were discovered in the depths of Warhol’s archives. The orange Felder Felder cat-eye lenses ($395, Bergdorf Goodman) will delight retro-philes; Twin founders Daniela and Annette Felder cited a fusion of Audrey Hepburn and John Lennon as their inspiration.
Should just a subtle flash of exuberance be desired, Dior’s square frames ($500, Saks Fifth Avenue) or Smoke x Mirror’s orange number ($295, SmokexMirrors.com) will do the trick. After all, there’s no better way to outshine the sun than with some candy-hued shades.
