Alex is taking the bold sunglass trend face-on with these “Ilaria” frames from Retrosuperfuture. First introduced in 2010, this frame is notable for its perfectly rounded lenses, and acetate temples that butterfly and square off at the corners. The mix of materials gives off a two-tone effect, with a brown “havana” acetate on the top half of the frame, and a gold metal on the bottom. A metallic gold bridge continues the contrasting effect, black Carl Zeiss lenses finish off the fashionable and directional look.
These oversized Celine sunglasses were the perfect summer purchase for New York-based creative director Ariella Gogol, who liked them because they “provide great coverage” during the sunny summer months. The tortoise frames carry all the hallmarks of a great pair of Celine glasses, with bold styling, thick acetate and minimal adornments. Edges are curved and refined, while everything is handmade and hand-polished for a subtle sheen. We spotted Ariella during a casual day at the park, but these glasses work equally as well for work or a night out for one last summer hurrah!
