Sunglasses: not the first thing you would think of when making your wardrobe winter proof. But you might reconsider after seeing these pictures. Because the great designers showed us that a good pair of sunglasses in the winter is not such a bad idea after all. Plus it raises your cool-factor for sure. Definitely the ones we’ve seen this season.
Like Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabanna, who showed us ultra cool shades in bright candy colors, gifted with their familiar touch of Italian elegance. But most popular this season are for sure the circle shades, that seem to take us back to the time John Lennon wore those famous round shaped glasses. Or what to think of an updated version of the maybe not so ‘cool’, but definitely mysterious ‘Sherlock Holmes’ shades. Not so bad of a style statement…
Which sunglasses are you wearing during the coming fashionweeks? Summer has finally arrived in Paris. So get out your vintage Ray Ban, your latest Prada or even your goggles!? Maybe we’ll spot you in Paris, Milan, New York or Amsterdam. We met Karl Lagerfeld at the streets of Paris outside Dior yesterday. During the fashionweeks we refresh our streetwear posts regularly. We don’t judge, we’re not the fashion-police, we just enjoy fashion and your own personal style. Next stop: menswear fashionweek in Paris.
Time to get your BIG sunglasses out. Like these from Giambattista Valli, made of wood and metallic-colored plastic. So glamorous.
When it comes to sunglasses every possible shape, size and color was presented on the runway.
We saw a crazy pair at the Ungaro fashion show which had diamonds all over the glasses. At Alexander Wang they were very pointy. At Hussein Chalayan they were pentagonal. In the Moschino show a few pairs had the shape of a flower.
Karl Lagerfeld put guitars on the side of his glasses. At Jenden they had all kinds of sparkling colorful rocks on the frame. And Louis Vuitton made them look like diving-glasses.
If there was a trend to be recognized among all those sunglasses it might be the one of the small circular Beatle glasses. They were there at the fashion shows of Erdem, Carolina Herrera, House of Holland, Iceberg and Schwab.
Another variant that stood out were the sunglasses with the pointy Fifties-inspired sides, which give someone the angry schoolteacher’s look. Jenny Packham, Rochas, Sonia Rykiel, Alexander Wang and Giles had them in their fashion show.
So, no specific look stood out for SS2010. Yet it might be time for the Beatle-glasses to return.
