Sunglasses for showing off in
Yeah, you heard us
words Heather Gwyther
We could talk endlessly about the joys of summer. Festivals, doing less work than you’re supposed to, feeling a modicum of heat on your bare flesh – it’s all deeply satisfying. But, honestly, what we love most about summer is this: sunglasses. Sunglasses are great for many reasons. Want to parade the streets in disguise? Put on a pair of sunglasses. Want everyone to notice you? Put on a pair of sunglasses. Want to protect your eyes from the sun’s glare? Put on a pair of sunglasses. See, they’re indispensable! The problem, however, is deciding which pair to wear. We suggest having a full arsenal for all occasions. See below!
LACK OF CONVENTION
SHADY 3LW in BLACK
A core part of the Blade aesthetic has to be the teeny black sunglasses. Nobody does it better right now than Black British designer Christianah Jones. She rose to fame via Depop and now her glasses have been worn by the likes of Beyonce and Billie Eilish. These upturned 3LW’s, inspired by the 90s pop group of the same name, add a little uniqueness to the traditional small sunglasses.
YELLOW (NOT BY COLDPLAY)
SHADY 1.0 in YELLOW
The Shady was the very first collection from CHRISTIANAHJONES. While they might not offer the best UV protection (though they do offer some), they’re a great accompaniment at the club. Just don’t move your head too aggressively or they might fall off.
