    Sunglasses are the apex of cool, which might be why we love them so much in the 305. (Well, that, and perhaps the blinding, blazing sun...) And nothing says a summer more than than a rockin' tan and a pair of super luxe shades, which is why Giorgio Armani's ultra-iconic editorial is making us glad the rain is finally slowing.

    Whether you're shielding the glare of flashing lights (paparazzi anyone?) or hiding those morning-after eyes, Armani's freshly launched retro-inspired shades are the modern take on a classic summer essential.
