Yes, You Still Need Sunglasses in the Winter

The days may be getting shorter, but that doesn’t mean the sun has disappeared completely. You still need a reliable and stylish pair of shades. While the summer was all about maximalist styles — mirrored lenses, bold acetates, exciting shapes — this fall, sunglasses are taking a more subdued and considered turn.

Enter Burberry’s new eyewear collection, inspired by their younger, more rebellious personae: Mr. Burberry. You can see this influence in the Italian-made collection’s use of classic eyewear shapes with an added bit of an edge — in the case of this pair, it’s the leather-inspired inset into the metal and acetate frame along with the matte black colour that gives these glasses an urban feel while still remaining true to the British heritage brand.
It’s this play between classic and modern, rugged yet refined, that makes the collection a success, and means that these frames will look just as home with a suit as they will with a parka — perfect for the upcoming season.
