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. Taking cues from the French New Wave classic La Nouvelle Vague, the cinematic lookbook images capture the enduring class of Armani's Frames of Life. With timeless key hole shapes and dark, round frames (plus that Armani touch of luxury), we're sure you'll make a spectacle wherever you decide to jet-set this summer!
