21 quirky pairs of sunglasses for summer


If eyewear brands and luxury houses cultivate their creativity to imagine more eccentric designs every summer, the 2022 vintage is a total success. Alongside Gucci, which imagines an imposing model in the shape of a mask with yellow and purple lenses adorned with its logo, Saint Laurent dares to bring out the heart-shaped sunglasses worn by Sue Lyon in the famous film by Stanley Kubrick lolita. For their second collaboration, the Spanish eyewear brand Etnia and the young painter and digital artist Ignasi Monreal offer designs with obvious surreal accents, with their eyes painted on the temples. Accustomed to sci-fi creations, Balenciaga transforms the famous cat-eye model into a seductive cyber accessory, while Versace easily convinces us with its Medusa-shaped frames. Of course, Swarovski dabbles in the maximalist rhinestone model, while Miu Miu goes wild on a demure square design in metal. For Loewe, Jonathan Anderson transforms sunglasses into flowers, while Fendi, Levi’s and Dior make us see life through technicolor glasses. You can’t help but want a pair of Bottega Veneta, which comes in their signature green color scheme. Chloé, Jimmy Choo, Pomellato and Alaia opt for 70s elegance with large round models, Isabel Marant offer colorful pilots, and Hugo Boss and Givenchy present incandescent sportswear shapes.
