5 Metal Sunglasses Trends for Spring/Summer 2019
Discover the new season trend: the metal.
Finally, with the arrival of April, the long wait for spring has come to an end and the first taste of mild weather was all it took to awaken our desire to travel and discover new cultures, go outside for a run and wear our favourite summer suits made of seersucker, irish linen and cotton gabardine.
Between the sunny weather and the seasonal transitioning of our wardrobe, we are—quite unavoidably—tempted to treat ourselves to a new pair of sunglasses for our Spring/Summer 2019.
After apparently reaching the peak of success in the 70s with the aviator glasses,metal frames have made their grand return in our lives. Whether they are round, square or oval, metal sunglasses are an everlasting classic due to their minimalstyle, lightness and sturdiness. Thanks to their tailored, sleek design, metal frames are a practical choice that easily enhances your personal look with their effortless elegance.
Achieve a classic style with a modern twist by choosing the sleek, elegant lines of the Mohair sunglasses, with their hexagonal frame handmade in Italy, available in 24k gold and pure rhodium.
