Sunglasses are an essential accessory for sunny South Florida living. They are also among the more accessible luxury goods, offering many their first glimpse into the world of high fashion.  We’ve rounded up some of the season’s hottest sunglasses, and where they can be found.

Chanel

Chanel worked with musicians Angèle, Pharrell Williams, and Sébastien Tellier, joined by actresses Isabelle Adjani and Margaret Qualley, for the Spring/Summer 2020 eyewear collection.  Each were paired a sunglass design that matched their specific aura while displaying Chanel’s classic motifs.  Pick your persona and find the perfect pair of shades, a key accessory for self-expression and the distinction of style.

Tiffany & Co.

When one hears “Tiffany & Co.,” images of diamonds, Audrey Hepburn and robin-egg blue boxes come to mind, and rightfully so! The renowned jeweler has been a pillar of American culture and fine jewelry design for decades. A hidden gem of the brand’s offerings is its luxury eyewear collection. The gradient sunglasses pictured above showcase the trademark “Tiffany Blue” color with graphic angles and clean lines that blend beautifully into a cat eye shape even Holly Golightly would love.

Tiffany & Co. is located on the lower level near Nordstrom.

Fendi

As impactful as they are lightweight, the Fendi Botanical sunglasses promise to slot effortlessly into your daily rotation, while also elevating everything they’re paired with.

Bold-framed glasses and sunglasses characterize the Gucci eyewear line for women, from classic aviators to cat-eyes and crystal Hollywood Forever styles.  Grey square lenses define these sunglasses, while sparkling crystals illuminate the silver-toned metal temples, ending with a mother of pearl effect tip.

For Honey Dijon, fashion and music have always been two sides of the same coin. Her three exclusive new frames for Ray-Ban Studios reflect her ability to seamlessly clash genres and eras with integrity and style.

A journey through 30 years of music, in 3 unique styles.
