Fashion Week may be over, but that’s no reason to quit flexing. In fact, if there’s anything we learned from London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks, it’s that SS19 is all about embracing the OTT and the extra. You may have seen our recent round-up of our favorite bold shirts from Milan Fashion Week, but now we have eyes for another expressive trend — the shades.
From Virgil Abloh’s twist on Louis Vuitton’s Millionaire sunglasses to Heron Preston’s collab with Nike that emerged during Paris Fashion Week, the next big thing in sunglasses trends appears to flick between the flashy and utility-style. A particular turn out the books is the embracing of Oakley shades by the fashion world, having recently debuted a fast-sold out collaboration with Palace. The Oakley Razor Blade sunglasses have even been spotted on the likes of Pharrell.
So for those of you who like to stay ahead of the wave, look no further than our selection of the most over-the-top frames you can hit the streets with right now. In our round-up, you’ll find head-turners like Dior Homme’s yellow vinyl visor and large utility sunglasses from Oakley, along with a decidedly less extra but equally flashy iridescent pair by Louis Vuitton, and MANÉMANÉ’s melted frame sunglasses.
So stick those boring wayfarers back in their case and peep our full selection of statement sunglasses below.
