Safilo Group Australia recently treated us to a preview of their latest sunglasses collections. From brands like Marc Jacobs to Dior to their house brand, Polaroid Eyewear, it was interesting to see and understand that sunglass designs are about the technology as much as it is the about the aesthetic.
Revealed during the runway show, the Dior Homme sunglasses impose a strong statement with their flat lenses and ultra-thin metal frame. The metal structure underlines the architectural elegance of the style and creates a bold juxtaposition against the vibrant colours that designer Kris Van Assche sent down the catwalk. The selection from Marc By Marc Jacobs highlights an irreverent spirit and is interpreted with vintage-inspired geometric and round shapes and accentuated by bold colours. The edgy styles are suited for both men and women but it does take a certain fearless spirit to adorn these sunglasses.
