This summer has already been a corker which, we’re willing to bet, has already left you unexpectedly sweaty and squinting into the beaming sunshine this June.
Whether you’re all about soaking up those beautiful rays, or are more of a cool cucumber, there’s no denying that a pair of good-looking shades is an absolute necessity in this sort of weather.
To help you pick the perfect pair for Summer 2017, the perennially dapper Barrington Watchwinder team have hand-picked a few of the sunglasses they’ve had their beady eyes on this season…
1. Rauschenberg Sunglasses, Warby Parker
Inspired by the artist behind the foundation which gave these ridiculously cool frames their name, these pop art-centric, Rauschenberg beauties are available in a whole series of delectable colours including cerulean, primrose and marina. Bright and poppy, precision made in crystal for a contemporary feel, but with retro styling that harks back to the 60s, these are just plain beautiful shades for any gender. We’ll take a pair in every colour.
The product of a collaboration between two on trend British brands, these limited edition sunglasses are universally cool, making virtually every wearer look the business. With just enough rock’n’roll retro features to give them a sprinkle of mysterious celebrity cool, but absolutely zero attention seeking extras, these shades are pretty much the business on any face shape. Trust us.
If there’s a tiny part of your inner young boy which hasn’t given up his dreams of one day being an international secret agent (with a retro twist), these ridiculously cool Bottega Veneta sunglasses will scratch that itch, without looking preposterous. In stylish gunmetal grey, these slick sunglasses feature the label’s signature “intrecciato” weave which adds a surprisingly sunny touch to these serious shades. The craftmanship on these beauties is as impressive as their overall look.
