If you have a particularly strong penchant for statement sunglasses (the more avant-garde the shape, the better), allow us to introduce you to Australia-based eyewear line Pared. Since launching in 2011, the quirky-cool brand has already attracted a cult-celeb following (as in Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus) and has gained major momentum Down Under, in Asia and now the USA.
Each pair is handmade using a wide range of materials (acetate, metal, stones, leather and more) to create covetable designs that’ll stand the test of time. If you’re in the market for uber-bold sunnies, consider Pared your go-to for anything-but-ordinary eyewear. Their vast offering includes everything from crystal-embellished cat eyes to classic styles equipped with a fresh twist (think stark white shades with a a tortoise-shell trim). Below, 5 of the many Pared sunglasses we’re coveting and how to wear them.
