Kate bought these Stella McCartney “4006” sunglasses in New York last September because she wanted something that was “cat eye-inspired without being too catty.” These frames are from McCartney’s spring/summer 2010 collection and feature a sporty design, with a ski goggle-inspired shape and sharp red detailing that extends across the arms and down the sides of the temples. The v-shaped nose bridge helps the frames fit comfortably on Kate’s face, while also extending the chic athletic motif.
Kate says she normally gravitates toward more classic styles and that this pair was definitely unique for her. Judging by the way she put the rest of the outfit together (we love the leather jacket!), we think the shades will fit into her wardrobe just fine!
