It’s Not Too Late — We’ve Found the Perfect Summer Sunnies

Posted By Audrey Magazine On August 12, 2014 @ 7:05 pm In Fashion | Comments Disabled

 

There is one accessory that is a complete necessity during these summer months: a solid pair of sunglasses to take everywhere. This practical means of protection holds an iconic place in the fashion world from Audrey Hepburn’s Oliver Goldsmith frames in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s to Ray-Ban’s Wayfarers that have been around for decades. Luxury designers produce lines of collectible and vintage worthy styles, but I’ve found a new favorite: Sunday Somewhere’s recent collaboration with biracial Japanese American fashion blogger Rumi Neely of Fashiontoast.com.

These aren’t your typical sunnies. The frames may have a classic shape, but nontraditional materials and interesting color combinations provide a fresh take on the handmade beauties. Neely described it best on her blog: “I really wanted to make the details special, to have them stand out from the average pair, and we did just that with rose gold detailing, an all-leather option and matte metallics.” 

Below is part of the collection currently available at Net-a-porter [1] and Sunday Somewhere [2]. And for more daily fashion inspiration be sure to take a peek at her Fashion Toast [3] photo streams!

Of course, we can’t end without some fabulous images of Neely wearing her newest collab.
