All in Eyewear

Sunglasses: Dior, T-shirt: Ralph Lauren

 

The joke at home is that these sunglasses suit me because they cover most of my face...well ha ha ha...  

The 'Dior Audacieuse 1' in black, gold and blue are the most unique pair of sunglasses that I have seen across all the recent collections. Spotted them on the Fall 2013 runway show and just had to have them :-) Love love love the butterfly shape!!! 

Lived in them during my recent trip to Singapore for the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Even though I was there for just two days, I wasn't going to miss the Singapore Zoo, which is where I took the picture above. I should wear them with my hair pulled back though to show the asymmetric forked arms... Anyhoo... take a closer look below...

Sunglasses: Gucci; T-shirt: Dolce & Gabbana

So it turns out that I can no longer make fun of "click happy" people who keep taking pictures of themselves; as I have turned into one of them

This is me experimenting with "camera angles" in my oversized Gucci Bio-Based Fashion Sunglasses. Love these sunnies for the unique colour and super sized round shape. The sunglasses feature a lilac Flora motif bio-based acetate frame with a 1973 Gucci metal logo at the temples and mauve shaded lenses. So fun. Love em. :-)

The sunglasses from their new Spark collection are available in metallic gold, metallic kelly green, metallic turquoise and my personal favourite metallic purple.

I am soooo looking forward to 'Skyfall.' There is a certain "cool factor" associated with everything the 007 agent does, says and even wears. Tom Ford is dressing James Bond for a second time in the upcoming film 'Skyfall' and the one thing you can't miss about his look in the promos are these Tom Ford aviators.

Giorgio Armani has launched a digital photo gallery where you can share your pictures and become a part of this entertaining visual diary. All you have to do is capture an unforgettable moment while on holiday. The phot0-sharing platform is looking for the same spirit that is the inspiration for the new Frames of Life Spring/Summer 2012 advertising campaign, which can be seen on the website. 

To become part of this new project is incredibly simple: just take a picture of yourself – or have someone take your picture – wearing your favourite sunglasses. Then choose one of Instagram’s filters and share it on social networks, adding the hashtag #FRAMESOFLIFE. Thanks to a partnership withfollowgram.me, the pictures will be uploaded to the “FRAMES OF YOUR HOLIDAY” album, which can be viewed on the armani.com/framesoflife website.

Another really exciting collaboration from H&M. This time around, H&M has roped in fashion icon and legendary Fashion Director Anna Dello Russo to create an over-the-top accessories collection. A craze in the blogosphere for her flamboyant outfits, Anna Dello Russo is best known for her sense of styling and unique taste for ornamentation. True to the fashionista, the collection an expression of Anna Dello Russo's taste is expected to be unabashedly glamorous, playful and precious. :-)

Going by the fantastic Burberry Summer 2012 eyewear campaign aviators are the way to go this summer. Quite like the campaign because it celebrates emerging British music talent. It's always commendable when iconic brands lend support to artists in fields other fashion. Curated by Christopher Bailey, the black & white campaign has been shot in London and features four musical acts One Night Only, Life in Film, The Daydream Club and Marika Hackman. Super Nice :-)

Sonam Kapoor works the 'Geek Chic' look and how :-) She launched Khalid Mohamed's book TWO MOTHERS and other stories in Mumbai last evening and also read an excerpt from the book. Sonam is wearing an organza cream and gold outfit by Anamika Khanna with a Chanel bag, Jimmy Choo sandals and a Bvlgari watch. To complete her look Sonam opted to wear her hair braided.

Happy Valentine's Day! They say when you are in love you see the world through rose tinted glasses. :-)) And I am loving Zegna's new Spring/Summer 2012 sunglasses for men with the colored lenses in pastel tones.    

Zegna has taken the main collection's inspiration of the washed out and bleached look to create "minimal" sunglasses in acetate and metal. I know they are for men but I couldn't resist trying them on and they are so light weight its fantastic. I also found them to be quite sporty and good for daily use. The styles are in the very popular aviator and on-trend retro-inspired shapes.
