Sun’s out, shades out. You’re neither 100% protected nor fully clothed until you whip out a pair of eyewear, on this side of the world. SPF ends at skin protection, but it’s your eyes that take the toll when the sun bears down.

The right pair of sunglasses not only blocks UV radiation and premature wrinkles; it’s practically the manly accessory that’s effortlessly cool. This season sees a remake of retro styles, featuring modern shapes and eclectic colours – a fitting addition to your spring wardrobe.

A highlight on the spring/summer 2018 runway, the catwalk rounded sunglasses features an oversized frames design and a curving double bridge. The innovation though, is in the flat lenses fastened with retro style screws. As always, Giorgio Armani’s distinct identity is symbolised in diamond-shaped rivets on both tips.
