What frames are your favorite at the moment?
I particularly like our new butterfly shape sunglasses “Beverly” (BL7056), fashionable and sophisticated at the same time, with the detail of the corner mirror lenses that makes it very special. Also it will be featured in the new advertising campaign with our muse Hailey Baldwin.
Do you have any tips for buying sunglasses online?
Sunglasses should cover the whole width of your face, regardless of the shape of your face.Find a frame that contrasts with the shape of your face. For example, if you have a round face, a rectangular or square frame would suit you more than a round frame.
What are some of the summer 2018-2019 must haves?
Colorful semi-transparent lenses (sunglasses)
Single-piece lens frame/Rimless like masks (sunglasses)
Oversized and Vintage for the optical frames
