As a newfound sunglasses hoarder, I’m all about the new eyewear launches that seem to be popping up in every corner of the fashion world. What with the recent announcement of an upcoming Kendall + Kylie line and the general existence of ridiculously cool brands like Perverse, I was beginning to think I might just max out on sunnies for this season. But, per usual, it would seem I was wrong: London brand Self Portrait is rolling out a line of sunglasses with Australian brand Le Specs. And the best part? It’s actually reasonably affordable.
Self Portrait is perhaps best known for its lacy dresses and debut bridal collection, but that doesn’t mean it can’t break into the ever-growing sphere that is eyewear. The five different styles (think wayfarers, rounds, and cat-eyes), all of which retail for $125 (placing it snugly in the Ray Ban/Catherine Malandrino price point), are available in shades like crystal navy, pearl white marble, and matte blush, proving that the colored frame trend is alive and well for the coming seasons.
The shades are a welcome addition to the already trendy-yet-classic feel of the majority of Le Specs’ offerings, but you know that they’re status as Self Portrait shades will have them flying off the shelves the second they’re made available to the public, which, BTW, will happen on Friday, April 1.
If you’re feeling extra savvy, the shades are available for pre-sale now! Still need convincing? Take a look at the five styles below:
