The perfect summer fashion accessory, an essential item to spend your afternoons on the terrace or on the beach, yes, what else could we be talking about? Sunglasses, useful and stylish.
From aviator frames to the long awaited 80s/90s comeback, here are the trends for summer 2019 that you should ravish!
Shades for men
Sunglasses emphasize one’s character and adds mystery to a man’s look. The designers have doubled their efforts to release bold models this summer. Here are the two models that are our main features for summer 2019 in the men’s collection.
The Pabu model from Mykita Mylon
If you don’t want your style to go unnoticed, then the avant-garde and bold designs of the Mykita Mylon brand will certainly catch your eye. This year, the brand is reinventing the aviator style with a mix of square and rounded shapes. A timeless model that suits any shape of face and many styles.
For the Pabu model, the brand has chosen a simple bridge between the two glasses that is located at the same height as the top bar, giving it a modern and refreshing style for summer.
By using 3D printing technology and finely melted polyamide powder to make their glasses, the German brand is truly unique and continuously surprises us.
As light as a feather and purposely durable, the Pabu model from Mykita Mylon is an instant classic, combining sporty design and fashion.
The VL1610 / 0001 model from Vuarnet
These little round glasses’ original and legendary ambassador, John Lennon, rendered them timeless and iconic.
This year, it is the Vuarnet brand that stands out with a model that revisits the aviator style by adding a touch of madness. The bridge between the two lenses gives character to the glasses with its geometric shape and the smoky tint of the polarized lenses brings a vintage and atypical side to this model that has stood the test of time.
This model is made in France and the lenses are exclusively made of mineral glass to ensure greater protection and impact resistance. Well known for its high precision and advanced technology, you can rely on the Vuarnet brand all summer long.
Shades for women
Just like summer dresses, sunglasses follow the trend on a yearly basis to always match your style. Round, aviator or butterfly style, each season comes back with new models, reinventing classics. A brief overview of the trendy sunglasses that will make the 2019 summer season.
The 51TS model from Prada
The divine cat’s eye / butterfly shape needs no introduction as it has established itself as a real classic in the female sunglasses section. This year, Prada offers a refined and retro-inspired model, mixing the two iconic shapes.
Its off-white colour is original and sober, giving an elegant and feminine look. The combination with metal branches provides strength and adds a touch of edginess to your style. These glasses, signed Prada, synonymous with quality and creativity, are handcrafted and made of metal.
The MONTI model from Etnia Vintage
Inspired by current trends and the art world, Etnia Vintage offers a double-deck model with a very vintage look, with yellow, green, brown and turtle flakes on the branches. These timeless styled glasses will bring a retro touch and an original touch to your style.
The biggest advantages this Etnia’s Vintage collection has, is that it is made entirely of original metal and acetates from the 1970s, from the famous Mazzucchelli factories. This makes it a completely authentic product, rendering it a unique pair of sunglasses. Handmade from a combination of acetate and metal, this quality model will accompany you for many seasons.
This summer, let yourself be tempted by a pair of sunglasses that will not only dress your face, but also provide safety and protection for your eyes all season long. Go for retro glasses with a touch of modernity and elegance, and above all let your creativity speak for itself!
