The New Sunnies Go-To: Longchamp
Yeap, the same French brand behind everybody’s favourite Le Pliage tote. Following the same design philosophy of its mainstay leather goods – reliable yet chic – its artistic director, Sophie Delafontaine, has created a debut collection of nine sunglasses ($190-$285) in timelessly trendy styles. There are retro cool round frames in tortoise shell acetate; a more glamorous, oversized take in gold, lightweight metal; and even sleek aviators with a leather-trimmed bridge. Produced by renowned eyewear company Marchon (which also does glasses for luxury titans like Valentino and Calvin Klein), each is designed to fit Asian features, so they’ll look good, whichever you choose.
