Seen on the runway
Not a single designer felt the need to only add a basic pair of round sunglasses to their runway silhouettes and leave it at that. The new retro shades are innovative and reawaken alluring styling possibilities. Each pair is entirely different from the other, and it seems as though there are a million ways to reinvent a model that has persistently stuck around since the sixties. A common thread throughout the circular trend is the use of tinted lenses, Elie Saab's yellow-coloured lenses instinctively retake us to the Woodstock years. Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci neatly ties together a red and fuchsia silhouette by adding red-coloured lenses with a bold black frame.
Moving on to the statement shades, Dolce&Gabbana adds pearly embellishments to an oversized frame, and Thom Browne designed striking metallic temples to go with his clean round frame. Proving that you can easily modernise round sunglasses and wear them in a contemporary way, Marni created a futuristic pair with large, round lenses that are connected by the infinite glass nose bridge.
