If you’ve been tempted by the recent warmer weather to ditch your coats and winter gloves, then you’re not alone. We are so ready for summer; give us long, blissful dusks, the sun on our shoulders and a dip in a cool pool, not to mention our favourite fashion accessory, a statement pair of sunglasses.
While we’re all for the classics, we love unique styles and new to the shade scene this year is Goldsmith graduate Xiwen with her label Nyx London. Interestingly, this is not the first label fresh from fashion school with the aim of creating luxury items with more accessible pricing. We’re seeing a flurry of designers bringing their talents to the street, which we hope will have an impact on high street buying.
Designs from the collection The Cloud and One Love are a really nice take on the original round shade style but we can’t go past the Prism cateye sunglasses. We’ll take ours with a Campari spritz on the Amalfi Coast please.
As Xiwen herself said, ‘Life is too short to wear boring sunglasses!’ True dat.
