If there’s one category that truly transcends season, it’s eyewear. Sure, ye old faithful denim will always take you from A to B (or winter to summer), and a fine knit is a great fashionable trick to have up your sleeve, but the one item that follows you from the sunshine to the ski slopes is sunglasses. Always.
Small in size, mighty in impact; a great pair can change everything from your outfit to your outlook on life. Be it stuffed into micro bags or slung from pearly chains, sunglasses define trans-seasonal dressing, a must-have item both covetable and compulsory. And if there’s a pair to add polish and pizzazz to your look, it’s this stylish offering from storied Italian house, Salvatore Ferragamo.
Striking a balance between clacissim and contemporary flair, this season’s eyewear parlays the brand’s elegance and craftsmanship while fusing it with seamless functionality. A collection where duality is the virtue, a clever and canny game of contrast unfolds as varying shades and materials play alongside each other flawlessly. Whether supersized and rendered with inflated proportion, or superbly subtle and understated, this season’s sunglasses and optical frames shed new light on eye-dressing.
A style to suit every face shape, occasion and outfit, consider the following new season silhouettes before you step outside. Because what’s better than a Salvatore Ferragamo outlook on life?
For a discreet attitude, be a modern maverick and choose classic pilot shapes with a twist. A style that never goes out of vogue, Salvatore Ferragamo reaches new heights with its modern take; a streamlined masculine aviator lens in mixed metals which merges vintage appeal with modern refinement.
Or play up to leather, with hand-applied leather inserts lending a soft feel to its robust metal structure. A refreshing detail on an old classic.
The cat’s meow
Recalling the Hollywood glamour of a bygone era, Salvatore Ferragamo’s catty shades draw the curtains on drama. Press play on heavy metal with a full-metal structure fitted with side spoilers and either colourful enamel or luminous gold and palladium.
Or for something a little extra, try Ferragamo’s take on colour-blocking with a striking angular shape and colourful, kittenish details at the temple. Or the modern day cat-eye; a contemporary twist on an old classic, its edges are squared off and slightly more linear as bold geometric proportions steal the spotlight (or sunlight). A cool cat, always.
