finally had the opportunity to catch up on my fashion magazines this weekend, specifically Harper's Bazaar.
In their "What's New: Hottest, Newest, Latest" column they detailed a recent development in designer sunglasses.
"The latest trend in eyewear comes from an unlikely source -- buckles. Fendi's B, Roger Vivier's signature Pilgrim, and Gucci's classic closure have appeared as details on glam oversize sunglasses. Who knew looking chic would be such a cinch?"
Fendi's B Fendi Sunglasses:
Colors: Black, Dark Brown
Retailer: Saks Fifth Ave.
Colors: Black, Tortoise, Red, Violet, Green, Blue
The Roger Vivier sunglasses, far less common than the other two pairs, really caught my eye. Katie Holmes was photographed wearing them last month at David Orgell, a jewelry store on Rodeo Drive.
Colors: Red, White, Black, Tortoise (as seen on Ms. Holmes)
Retailer: Saks Fifth Avenue (in stores, not available online)
Additionally, they were recently profiled in Wallpaper:
"It's a risk to refer to Diana Vreeland and Nicole Richie in the same sentence, but Roger Vivier's new sunglasses evoke just that type of icon-inspired elegance that we all wish we could exude everyday. The first frames in the collection boldly show off an oversized, Forties silhouette in your choice of red, black, white and tortoise shell, with Vivier's signature gold buckle adorning each temple in quiet homage. Mysterious, forward, effortless and desirable all at once, what more could a girl ask for?"[Source: Wallpaper]
