Tod’s Butterfly Sunglasses

About a year ago I became totally obsessed with the Prada Butterfly Sunglasses and I predicted that they would be the absolute hottest style of the year.  The unique shape that has just a tiny “pinch” at the side to create the outline of butterfly wings, was such a success that it has inspired many designers to use the same shape in their new sunglasses styles this year.

Tod’s is famous for their fashionable car shoes and leather handbags, but also recently for their fashionable designer sunglasses.  This season Tod’s has their own butterfly-shaped sunglasses with oversized round and square lenses and patterned frames.

I like the subtle difference between the round and square shapes of the lenses and the colorful safari-patterned frames.  Variations on the tortoiseshell pattern are everywhere this season and pair perfectly with the khakis and nudes that will be popping up on clothes…
