Upgrade Your Wayfarers with These Sunglasses from Saint Laurent

The Wayfarer is a timeless, classic design, that saved Ray-Ban when it landed on the heads of everyone from James Dean to Muhammed Ali and Tom Cruise in Risky Business. With sales in the millions, there’s a good chance you’ve owned a pair at some point in your life, however, we’re here to turn your eye onto the finer things in life, and these new designer sunglasses from Saint Laurent have caught our attention.

Dubbed the SL462 Sulpice, they’re a favourite of stylish Hollywood celebrities like Justin Bieber, but also the wider sartorial community thanks to the high-quality construction and modern design. Let’s take a closer look.

Saint Laurent SL462 Sulpice

  • Materials: 100% Acetate, made in Italy
  • Dimensions: Lens 53mm, Bridge 16mm, Temple 145mm

It’s not until you get a pair of designer sunglasses into your hands that you realise where your money is going. Here it’s the quality of the acetate, the Butterfly Wellington frames, and the nylon lenses that offer 100% UVA and UVB protection. If you prefer a lighter lens, you can get them too, or swap your own prescription lens in.

How would we style them? Well, that’s the benefit of a classic Wayfarer-style frame. These would look just as good dressed up with formal attire and a Tom Ford suit as they would with a vintage t-shirt, cargo pants, and sneakers like Travis Scott. Now, the question is, how would you style them?

The Saint Laurent SL462 Sulpice is priced at AUD$660 and can be purchased at the YSL website and any of the authentic retailers linked below.
