More than ever, sunglasses are at the heart of the trends.

Combining protection and individuality, sunglasses are the essential allies to finalize and nuance your style. Whether on the beach or in the city, they allow you to play on complementarities, to bring a touch of elegance or to embellish your look with an original and singular piece. Today available in all shapes, colors and materials, sunglasses adapt to all tastes, occasions and needs! Stand out, hide or assert yourself, it’s up to you to choose the role of the day!

The ultimate retro

Looking for a retro and timeless look? VIU’s new model, THE MINDFUL – YELLOW HAVANA SHINY, combines a round shape with a caramel color, all in the forefront of optical technology! Lightweight and comfortable to wear, they come in two acetate versions: the classic one made of cellulose plastic and the renew one, made from 96% sustainable materials. The lenses are available in a variety of tints for added originality, but all are protected against scratches, dust and water and are individually ground and treated.

The great Swiss 

With its already 50 years of history, the Cerjo brand is a must in Swiss eyewear, combining design and quality! Playing with different materials to create unique styles, it now has over 2000 different items. On the occasion of this anniversary, Cerjo has decided to complete its range with two new models, one for men and the other for women. For him, a rather classic pilot model, which combines an elegant and sporty line with the robustness of the steel structure. For her, a modern piece in black plastic, which accentuates the elegance of the forms by a shiny detail on the sides.

The Rectangle Cat Eye

While the rectangular ones have become sunglasses staples, Chanel offers a more nuanced model. With its slightly rounded geometric shapes and subtle Cat Eye rims, it calls for a scarf-like look tied on the head. Made of acetate, it comes in six frame-plus-glass pairs in different shades, from yellow or coral to more classic colors like black or tortoiseshell. A double C logo adorns the temples with a delicate detail to finish the piece. On the technical side, 100% UVA and UVB protection and category 3 lenses!

The discreet woody

If sunglasses are made of almost any material, wood has made a comeback in recent years. While the first models dating back to the Middle Ages were made of these species, today woodworking has really got its ecological coast. But taming the wood to make curved elements and light, comfortable models is not as simple as it seems. It took almost two years for Geneva-based nugget Wood2face to release its first pieces, with their thinly layered structure. After a collection that honors the great Swiss cities (a real favorite is the Sion in eucalyptus!), the brand has just released four new models, available in walnut, plane tree and swamp oak! To be discovered!

The max size

While the winter sports season is over, the trend for goggles is at its peak. While the shapes of the 2000’s are back in style, 2023 offers more streamlined models. That said, if real goggles are too much for your style, Longchamp has come up with a plus size model with a shape reminiscent of winter sports accessories, while leaving the separation between the two lenses for a more usual shape. Made of off-white or tortoiseshell brown acetate, it features a metal rider element on the temples, so unique to the brand.
