If you think the end of summer means it's time to pack away your sunglasses, think again. Even as the inevitable September rain poured down on the crowds at London Fashion Week, designer shades remained firmly fixed on the faces of the gathered editors, bloggers and stars.
Loewe's Filipa sunglasses, from the brand's A/W 15 collection, were the favourites amongst the FROW at S/S 16 shows. You couldn't swing a Chanel 2.1 without seeing these frames getting street style-pap attention! Gilda Ambrosio of Italian Grazia, Pernielle Teisbaek of fashion blog, Look De Pernille and Leaf Greener of ELLE China wore the Filipa style; albeit in their own inimitable way.
Pernielle posted a love letter to her Filipa sunglasses on her blog, before jetting out to Paris Fashion Week: "I’ve been craving them since I saw them in Paris last season! I’ve had them for a while (since London) and been wearing them almost everyday ever since." We expect to see more photos of the blogger wearing her beloved new Loewe investment!
When it comes to styling a signature pair of sunglasses, treat them much like any other statement-making accessory; dial down your outfit accordingly so that they stand out. Remember the universal style law: less is more. Wear your oversized shades with love-worn jeans, leather ankle boots and a chunky knit jumper, for zero-effort chic.
