HOT SHADES

Three new styles – and one cool clas­sic – to view the world through.

The Peak (Singapore) - - The Look Of Style 2018 -

With sun­glasses, as with ev­ery­thing else, there’s a rea­son why some­thing be­comes a clas­sic. A flat­ter­ing stan­dard that fulfi ls all child­hood Top Gun fan­tasies, the avi­a­tor style al­most al­ways gives its wearer ex­tra cool points. More so if they are this sleek pair by Tom Ford. The de­signer’s style hall­marks are out in full force in the vin­tage-in­flected gold metal rims, gra­di­ent lenses and sub­tle Ts on the tem­ple.

For Len­non-es­que el­e­gance, cir­cu­lar frames are com­ing back in the big round­about that is fash­ion. With slightly angular edges, th­ese pale gold Gior­gio Ar­mani frames are eas­ier to wear than two per­fect cir­cles. ( Note: Best for square face shapes with strong jaw­lines.)

For those with ac­tive life­styles or as­pire to one, sporty eye­wear com­pletes the look. Among the new re­leases fol­low­ing the re­cent re­launch of Linea Rossa, Prada’s sports-in­spired line recog­nis­able by its iconic “red stripe” logo, sin­gle-lens gun­metal frames are a func­tional way to dive into the ath­lux­ury trend.

Pre­fer a look that’s more off-the-wall? Try one of the ir­reg­u­lar-shaped styles mak­ing the rounds right now. The clas­sic-with-a-twist avi­a­tors from Gen­tle Mon­ster in a gold fin­ish aren’t an easy shape to pull off, but, then again, no one has ever ac­cused the in­no­va­tive South Korean eye­wear la­bel of be­ing an every­man brand. With flat apri­cot-coloured mir­rored lenses and a unique brow-bridge, they’re a sure­fire no­tice-me choice.
