While trends for what’s hot or not in the eyewear department come and go – a great pair of acetate frames never goes out of style. Acetate has been used by every brand on the market to make some of the most iconic sunglasses of all time; it’s flexible, strong and polishes up perfectly. It also develops a lovely, subtle patina over time, which can either add to the vintage look or be buffed out with ease to restore them to their former glory. They’re also super easy to repair – fun fact – you can fix a snapped pair with a bottle of nail polish remover, a steady hand and a little patience.
Our friends at Pacifico Optical are responsible for some of the freshest designs currently available, and seeing as we’re all about the clear frame right now, we thought we’d share some of our favourites from their collection.
Buckler – Champagne with Green Lens
You’d be hard pressed to find a pair of sunnies that demands long afternoons in the sun guzzling the good stuff more than these. Casual and classy all at once – get some in time for Summer.
Yacht Master – Amalfi Blue with Polarised Grey Lens
Made in collaboration with The Yacht Week, protect your peepers with panache next time you’re out sailing with these stunning sun-stoppers.
Lola – Champagne with Green Lens
A thicker, fuller version of their popular Buckler frames, the Lola is the latest addition to their lineup and is already selling in droves.
Buckler – Slate with Grey & Emerald Mirror Lens
Combining the casual clear frame look with a slightly more serious shade of grey, these will match just about any outfit.
Buckler – Crystal with Green Lens
What’s clearer than being clear? Crystal clear. Neutral tones keep these simple, elegant and versatile.
