Sun’s out, shades out. You’re neither 100% protected nor fully clothed until you whip out a pair of eyewear, on this side of the world. SPF ends at skin protection, but it’s your eyes that take the toll when the sun bears down.

The right pair of sunglasses not only blocks UV radiation and premature wrinkles; it’s practically the manly accessory that’s effortlessly cool. This season sees a remake of retro styles, featuring modern shapes and eclectic colours – a fitting addition to your spring wardrobe.


Dubbed the business-casual sunglasses, this gold and brown model unites retro styles with modern colours, and create a bi-layer appearance. Blue tips add a playful dimension, making it a statement pair for work and play.


There are the oversized sunglasses, and there are also the micro sunnies. If the path less taken is your kind of adventure, Balenciaga has the narrow frames that's Kanye approved. Diminutive it may be, but this red microscopic pair will earn you major brownie points.


Graphic and round shapes come together in this dazzling, matte orange pair by Dior Homme. Silver metal combine with ultra thin mirrored lenses, and openworked orange lacquered temples depict the Dior Homme cut, in this 100& UV protected eyewear.
