I've worn girl's glasses for the past five years. Works out OK I guess.

Yes! I desperately need some but am unwilling to budget the funds for them right now.

I've got a pair of Anne et Valentin frames picked out that I want. Can't find the frame online right now but they're pretty round with thick arms coming out at the middle of the frame, really nice.

Need to replace my glittery ray-bans - these don't suit my face at all and are fading horrible along the arms. Had them for 4 years now, bleh.

I bought Raybans because I couldn't be bothered to try and worry about what pair of sunglasses to get but I totally regret it now. Kind of want

Image from ace and tate instead.

Those tenders look nice but I guess they're about £800 or something.

EDIT: I wasn't far wrong. £445.

I love my Wayfarer sunnies and don't find sunglasses so frightfully interesting compared to regular eyewear. Paid too much for them though.

Those ace-and-tate ones are an interesting shape. Won't look good on everyone that.

bela those are absolutely gorgeous.

i have an oliver peoples fetish... dunno why. love their classic cool attitude.

on my shortlist are OP linfords
Image
these are the parabellum collection, i believe of the 50 made there is only one left sitting for retail. will probably end up getting a regular pair when the time comes.

and oliver people x nom de guerre 1's
Image

love how aggressive and bold these are, particularly on my pale ass face. i would definitely wear these while conducting job interviews.

oliver peoples x thesoloist
Image

i would get these thom glasses (either one) in lieu of the NDG1's if i knew where to buy them.

They're really massive and don't like to stay on my face particularly

When the time comes to buy some more i'll get Thom Browne sunnies

SALT glasses. it is pretty hard to resist the undefatiguable combo of handcrafted-in-japan x generously-letterspaced-sans-serif-all-caps-brand x period-in-the-brand-because-they're-the-best-period. these in particular (the dasha model) look like the kind of dog you'd like to own someday, and pose with in matching prescription glasses.

Image

moo piyasombatkul glasses. let's face it at some point in life you realize "i want to adorn my eyes like i would a peacefully rococo home, with scrolly moulding and flourishes". (this may not actually be rococo. please give me a heads-up, i'm not the most informed re: art history and didn't quite know what to call this.)

Image

oliver peoples x the soloist glasses. really like the metal bits folded over the joints between the sides and the front, it's a kind of old-man-retired-from-steampunk-cosplaying-y.

Image

prada s/s 2011 womenswear. "hello i'm wearing 60's swim goggles" (1, 2) + "madame butterfly's eyebrows are flying away from her face" (3). as a sidenote, the models in this runway showing had a heavy block of silver eyeshadow directly below their eyebrows (4), and i first thought they were floating sunglasses and was so enchanted. if sknss doesn't continue her thread-creation-monopoly i would like a runway makeup thread, i think, and may make it.

Image

Image

Image

Image

karen walker (number one) sunnies. the whole angular polygonal-edges cateye thing is pretty awesome.

Image

Image

céline s/s 2013 sunnies for extra angular-cateye deliciousness

Image

lanvin s/s 2013 (i think) along similar lines as the last two headlines, but i feel the metal wire looping on the side is kind of cool. i confess i'm a little upset that i don't have enough examples (only this + the oliver peoples x the soloist ones above) to start a pinboard of "eyewear with little metal-y bits".

Image

miu miu "catwalk noir" sunnies because i decided to go and hunt down "eyewear with little metal-y bits" anyway.

Image

marc by marc jacobs f/w 2013–14. women's (1, 2) and men's (3). i think the variegated colour/pattern fills are so lovely

Image

Image

Image

thematically-relevant although not really what this thread was going for: a girl wearing sunnies with a sunnies-printed skirt!

Image

there's another céline pair i'm having issues finding a picture of and it's driving me crazy, so i guess i'll leave off here.

Those Mykita for Damir Doma and Prada goggle-glasses are the best thing

Think we need a Prada thread soon. Cool that Michael Pitt is their model right now too, big into him.

I made it into the mykita store. pretty next level stuff-- everything feels both lux but also really solid, not like what luxottica brands produce.

the brand really nicely toes the line between classic shapes and more forward thinking design. might cheat on oliver peoples and get my next pair of sunglasses there
