4 Sunglass Trends this Season

Sunglasses – the quintessential summer accessory. Make sure you know what’s trending this season with our quick guide.





As with apparel trends this season, we’re also seeing the eyewear equivalent of the paired back colourings. Versace have a beautiful marbled pattern in a classic over-sized style. There are also beautiful cat-eye frames in matte black, white and dusky lavender from Prada that would look fabulous with the minimalist trend.

Round shapes




Round shapes are also popular with Ray-Ban and Vogue both doing a circular frame.

“Round frames in all sizes from oversized Prada frames to small round Ray-Ban John Lennon style frames are going to be a big hit over summer.” – Stewart Walton

Flash Lenses




Flash lenses are again popular this season, continuing the sport-luxe theme we’ve seen so much of recently. The go-to brand for an on-trend flash lens is Ray-Ban. They’ve done several styles made from their liteforce material with flash lenses.

“We predict the flash lens will be New Zealand’s hottest sunglass style this summer. Ray-Ban is leading the way with a great variety of Ray-Ban mirrored shapes across a number of iconic styles.”  – Stewart Walton





The most notable and lux style with embellishments this season has to be the Dolce & Gabbana Enchanted Creatures collection that are hand made in Italy. These include 3-dimentional “Enchanted Creatures” on the temples made from Swarovski crystals.

“Embellished sunglasses are proving to be another trend that we are seeing this season with Prada Studs sunglasses with embellished crystals and the Dolce and Gabbana Enchanted Creatures sunglasses having crystals on the temples.” – Stewart Walton
