Let’s clear this up: there’s nothing wrong with wearing sunglasses while #StayingHome. There’s little else that instantly and consistently spritzes up your look, no matter where you are, than donning a pair of sunglasses. Try the Valentino SS20 eyewear collection: a new range inspired by the oversize glam of the '60s. The collection effortlessly exudes the finesse and elegance of relaxed luxury.

Headlining the new collection is the VA2040 model. The rims are gold metal, with frame octagonal lenses that come in dark green or pale pink. On the side is the stylish VLogo Signature, with a matching gold metal removable chain that automatically transports you to the pool party scene in the Great Gatsby. The sunglasses’ slender arms are finished with tortoise-shell acetate temple tips, which match nicely with the Valentino stud.

The VA2041 model also comes in gold metal. The frames have rounded corners, inspired by 1960s silhouettes. Compared to the VA2040, the VLogo Signature is featured more prominently on the side, and is sculpted and dotted with crystals. The full glam effect is accentuated by the gradient lenses (brown, light blue, or light pink) and temple tips with the Valentino stud.

For a darker, more seductive look, try the VA4075, which comes with black acetate eye wires and black gradient lenses, or Havana acetate eye wires and cognac lenses. Similar to the VA2041, the stems feature the VLogo Signature with crystal pavé set, with temple tips and Valentino stud.

The VA3050 eyeglasses complement the sunglasses range, with its iconic ‘60s cat-eye rims (an iconic Valentino style) and the crystal-studded VLogo Signature. Thin and light, this model combines a thick black acetate front piece with slender gold metal arms. And like the others, its acetate temple tips feature a Valentino stud.
