Lady Prada sure knows how to create a spectacle.
During her years as a designer, she’s played around with both plastics and metallis, monochromatic and kaleidoscopic colour palettes and has conjured up some of fashion’s most eclectic and iconic sunglasses.
While they’re not cheap, you could console yourself under a pair of her statement sunnies to act as a concealer, facelift, outfit-maker, no-night’s-sleep-coverup and conversation-starter all in one! Not bad huh?
The right ones can not only hide a multitude of sins, but also transform the boring to the bizarre and the dowdy to the delightful, so it is worth hunting down the perfect pair.
Luckily, there is no need to look far, I’ve selected a few to peruse below, so take your pick for your dose of sunglasses pizazz this summer.
The first three are Prada; select from punky studs, a tortoiseshell cat-eye or even echo Jackie O with some iconic circular frames. Alternatively, shape up with some geometric shapes, obtain a perspex perspective or round off in the third pair, by Miu Miu.
