12 Local Sunglasses Labels Helping You Serve Looks All Summer Long
From sleek cat eyes and classic Wayfarers to coloured lenses and trending wraparound rave styles, there’s something for everyone.
Sun protection aside, a good pair of sunglasses acts as an exclamation point for your outfit. Whether you’re searching for an investment pair or like to change up your look regularly, these Australian and New Zealand brands have you covered.
As Y2K trends reverberate throughout the latest collections, this summer is the perfect time to push yourself out of your style comfort zone. Don a pair with coloured lenses or wraparound frames to claim your sartorial status. For classicists, oversized cat eyes and timeless rectangular silhouettes are always a hit, whether you’re shielding hungover eyes or people-watching by the pool. And if you’re in the market for brands with an eco-friendly mindset, sustainable designs made from recycled materials don’t miss a beat when it comes to blocking UV rays and looking good.
Raie’s genderless collection is filled with minimalist, classic styles. The brand offers a "find your fit" feature to help you match your face shape to the perfect pair of sunnies. From cat eye to wrapped and rectangle, the handmade acetate styles are fitted with Category 3 UV400 lenses for high levels of sun protection. We think the Mimi in choc is ready for a moment in the sun this summer.
