Colorful sunglasses to cool off in style
Summer’s most eye-catching colorful sunglasses are found in a rainbow of alluring shades and are a sure-fire way to stand out from a heat wave. Life just got a little brighter (and warmer)!
Life has been a bit lacking in light lately, so this summer we’re setting our sights on colorful sunglasses in an alluring spectrum of shades. We suggest investing in see-through frames in vivid jewel tones that will shine in the heatwave sun like a gemstone – think futuristic retro lilac cat-eye frames from Bottega Veneta, in athletic-inspired styles from Sportmax in emerald green and oversized 1970s Gucci optics in cerulean, among others.
The more outrageous new optics exploit S / S 2021’s wider penchant for crisp, punchy tones, which have appeared on the catwalks of brands including Akris, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Christopher John Rogers and Roksanda. There is a high-energy optimism behind these hues and tones, which help bring positivity to a year dominated by the dark undertones of the Covid-19 pandemic. “Color is everything to me, this season more than ever,” Akris’s Albert Kriemler told Wallpaper * in September 2020, in connection with his collaboration with Imi Knoebel, the German abstract artist renowned for his talent as a colorist.
Colorful sunglasses: life is getting a little brighter (and warmer)!
If you want to reflect a whole prism of encouraging colors, a clear sunglasses silhouette is most striking. Lindberg, Louis Vuitton, and Prada all offer eye-catching options in geometric, graphic, and enveloping styles. Prada, for example, flirted with the utilitarian aviator shape and contrasted the sheer acetate with the black kohl hardware.
When it comes to the Covid-19 pandemic, the clouds have not yet fully separated, but it’s safe to say that the sunlight is breaking through. When wearing any of these styles of sunglasses, from Celine’s geometric magenta hues to Fendi’s “FF” monogram lenses, life can seem a little brighter. §
