Sunglasses are more than just a fashion accessory - they're collectors' items and they're a way of communicating a mood.
Sunglass Hut marketing manager, Earl Kopeledi, agrees with me here, saying “Sunglasses add individual expression to any outfit. They convey a sense of who you are, whether you’re a trendsetter or master of timeless elegance."
And while sunnies are both a sartorial and practical necessity during the Spring/Summer seasons, they cannot be reduced to being merely seasonal accessories. Fendi proved this during their Fall/Winter Haute Couture 2019 show.
And during our autumn/winter seasons, some of South Africa’s favourite Instagram personalities were spotted in the latest sunglass collections from brands such as Loewe, Tom Ford and Celine.
Siyanda Dzenga in Tom Ford
Melody Molale in Celine
Lerato Kganyago in Loewe
All these brands are available at Freckle Eyewear boutique at Menlyn Mall.
So while we're currently basking in this warm transitional weather, we recommend you add these frames to your collection:
Sun. Shield. Deliver.
Shields will turn any look into an instant statement, showcasing both a futuristic and street style aesthetic.
