Style : Accessories

It’s that time of year when I always start thinking about my sunglasses for the summer. I simply have to have the perfect shades for my luxury travels and there’s so many to chose from, so to make life a little easier, here are my top 3 best designer sunglasses for summer 2018!…

Gloryfy

I adore Gloryfy sunglasses, as well as being super stylish they add a fabulous touch of high-tech performance. Every year I seem to lose at least one pair of sunnies when they get stuck down the sun lounger and there goes an arm or when I scratch them in the bottom of my bag! Problem solved with eyewear from Gloryfy. All their glasses feature unbreakable arms, frames and lenses so whatever life throws at them, they can take it. The key technology is NBFX™, which means that even under extreme deformation, the glasses simply pop back to their original shape. Another great advantage of the material is that it is extremely lightweight.

There’s a huge range of funky colours, chic styles, sizes and finishes in their collection and a separate sports range too. Top styles for summer 2018 include Gi16 Headliner which I think looks sensational in the Honey; Gi15 St. Pauli Sun which also comes in a range of colours, the Vintage Green particularly has me seduced, and with a very trendy rounded shape, the retro Gi8 Panto which simply has be worn in the gorgeous Olive.

Oliver Goldsmith

The history of this eyewear brand is as impressive as their range of sunglasses. Oliver Goldsmith has one of the most influential design heritages of any eyewear company still in production. Established in 1926 this iconic, family run, British eyewear brand has been instrumental in opening people’s minds to the idea that sunglasses are a key accessory to any outfit. The V&A Museum kindly describe Oliver Goldsmith as the “originator of fashion eyewear”, and “to eyewear design what Vidal Sassoon is to hair and Mary Quant to clothes”. Top style points then as well as an appealing range of colours and styles perfect for summer 2018, just with that added bit of history.

Ray-Ban

The iconic sunglass brand Ray-Bran was founded in 1937 and is perhaps best known for their Wayfarer and Aviator lines. Although they are perhaps a more mainstream and slightly obvious choice for your summer 2018 sunglasses, they are still excellent at producing stylish, funky shades that are worn by everyone from cultural icons to celebs. As well as their current collections you can also customise your own Ray-Bans on their website and create one-of-a-kind sunglasses just for you, not quite so mainstream after all.
