Fas­ci­nat­ing his­tory and time­less ap­peal aside, avi­a­tor sun­glasses are ar­guably the most pop­u­lar shape when it comes to clas­sic or con­tem­po­rary eye­wear de­sign. Ad­di­tions to Cal­i­for­nia-based Sama Eye­wear’s spring/sum­mer 2017 Com­bus­tion col­lec­tion rein­ter­pret the typ­i­cal avi­a­tor to give it a de­cid­edly fem­i­nine twist. This in­cludes frames with larger lenses, jew­elled fin­ishes and an in­no­va­tive but­ter­fly-shaped lens with a raised tem­ple (pic­tured). The laser­cut pat­terned tem­ples in pre­cious met­als are paired with the sea­son’s favourite lens colours, in­clud­ing French rose, rose gold and pearlised me­tal­lic shades. Also new in the Sama Com­bus­tion se­ries are light-wash or om­bré flat lenses in cus­tom-cre­ated hues of iris, sage, turquoise and cherry blos­som. In­spired by art, ar­chi­tec­ture and na­ture, Sama founder Sheila Vance, one of Hol­ly­wood’s favourite eye­wear de­sign­ers, sought to com­bine func­tion with style, tech­nol­ogy and fit in this fresh-look­ing col­lec­tion, which is avail­able from Har­vey Ni­chols - Dubai in Mall of the Emirates.
