If you’ve gone this long without a pair of cat-eye frames, we think today’s lenses may be the tipping point for you to try the retro style. Don’t get us wrong—we love our wayfarers and round specs plenty, but there is just something about a flared silhouette that speaks to a carefree summer spent poolside.
Known for her timeless design sensibilities, it is not surprising that Charlotte Olympia’s first foray into sunglass territory is with a set of ‘50s-inspired shades. The London it-girl-turned-eponymous designer conceived these sunnies with Linda Farrow’s pioneering eyewear brand, giving way to a feline shape with feather-print detailing and temples resembling a woman’s legs—strange, we admit, but cool! Available in red, peach and black themes, style them with a linen dress, flat sandals and metallic handbag for a classic look. Meow.
Availability: Charlotte Olympia for Linda Farrow Sunglasses ($372). For additional information, visit Lindafarrow.co.uk.
