When I visited London a couple of weeks ago I found a very nice sunglass’ spot at Liberty’s. Here you find a very fine selection of eyewear brands from all over the world, and not just the regular Luxotica-brands.
Some favorite Bonocle pieces:
ACNE. We’ve been writing about this model before, but not this color. Isn’t it amazing? Very fine matte surface and perfect combination of colours.
Thierry Lasry. As always, glossy acetate in lovely colours. Love the oversized round shape of the brown frame, feminine retro. And the red one… do I even need to explain? It’s the PERFECT nuance of red (and as some of you might know by now, I simply love red).
The Row. This is Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen’s own accessory brand. Established 2006 and loved by the fashion scene world wide. Playful and fashionable eyewear pieces of good quality.
Her tweet, on the 44th anniversary of the couple’s marriage:
“Over 1,057,000 people have been killed by guns in the USA since John Lennon was shot and killed on 8 Dec 1980.”
In a series of follow-up tweets:
“31,537 people are killed by guns in the USA every year. We are turning this beautiful country into war zone.”
“Together, let’s bring back America, the green land of peace.”
“The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience. After 33 years our son Sean and I still miss him.”
The image of Lennon’s bloodied spectacles, with New York’s Central Park in the background, was also the cover photo of Ono’s 1981 album Season of Glass.
The new sunglasses from Oliver Peoples are very chic, the details are delicate and female styles are cat shaped.
I love these fine details in the metal on the Annaliese!
The acetate used for Mande is really nice and the thickness of the frame really brings the contrasts out!
Softest colors ever on Sofee.
Well, hello matte teal Corie, matching my nailpolish! Very 80’s!
Light and transparent acetate and dark faded lenses makes a great combo! Love the three studs on the Afton.
Afton is also available in matte black.
Shwood made the coolest sunglasses ever – out of stone! Watch this beautiful video!

As some of you might know by now, Bonocle simply loves mirror lenses! Last week I posted a blog post of me sporting the cool Ray-Ban mirror aviator, today we’re showing you our three favorite pieces form the current Ray-Ban collection.
The never dying aviator in happy, cutting edge colours! Mod number: RB3025
Colors: Green (112/19), Red (112/69) and Blue (112/17)
Another never dying model! This time in a perfect match of summer colours. Mod number: RB3025
Colour: Beige/Orange with blue mirror lenses (110116)
I think we all had enough of the wayfarer at this point. For you seeking for something in that style but in a updated version – go for Erika. Thinner, more feminine, yet classic. Model number: RB4171
Colour: Matte brown/nude
There is a male version of ERIKA, called CHRIS. Very nice as well!
The other day I got the chance to see the complete collection of Giorgio Armani and PRADA, coming out in the stores now for SS13. I’ve a favorite from each collection!
From the Giorgio Armani collection:
This beautiful little red piece, with an amazing matte surface and lovely double nose bridge. Retro with a modern fusion of color and elegant silver details.
From the PRADA collection:
This pure retro look, available in a range of awesome colors! Simply lovely! Can’t decide on which color to love the most? I want them all. The blue/gold feels like the most classic choice, while the silver/mirror one is the party choice and the soft orange & pink ones have the perfect 70’s summer look.
Sunglass week starts NOW! Get ready for this year’s hottest shades!
Hillary Tsui wears “Bent” in Capri Orange from MYKITA‘s Lite collection. Very light but lots of character with that bright color!
Happy 80th Birthday Mr. Caine! Such a great Style Icon!
