Sun Shadey Days – New Sunglass Styles from Luxottica

Sun Shadey Days – New Sunglass Styles from Luxottica

Today I’m super excited, because I get to show you gals some of the hot new sunglass styles on offer from Luxottica’s brands! I love them all so much… and as I always say, a girl can never have too many shoes, perfumes or sunglasses! Brace yourselves though, for a bazillion-and-one sunglass selfies… Dolce & Gabbana First up, Dolce and Gabbana. The new range from the Italian powerhouse is absolutely jaw dropingly beautiful. Sophisticated, elegant and ladylike, but all while maintaining a serious glam factor… One of the biggest statements I’ve noticed Dolce & Gabbana making, are square frames. Whether simple square frames, or really extravagant ones that have beautiful hand made roses embellishing the entire frame! These  kinda remind me of a heavily frosted cake! I just want to eat them up! It’s all about the detail, with gorgeous temples, encrusted with cute and a little quirky bling-bling! Kinda obsessed with these (real) lace shades! At first, I thought the colour wouldn’t match my dark hair, but surprise, surprise… they are winners! Absolutely loving these floral options… Go all out with floral prints throughout your frames, or opt for more subtle versions (like the back pair) that have simple black frames in front, with a surprise floral detail hidden inside.…

Give me Sunglasses! New Season Styles

Give me Sunglasses! New Season Styles

Nothing can quite compare to being in a room, filled with sunglasses! I mean, it’s a dangerous place for a sunglass addict like me to roam free, but at the same time, it feels so right! I got a chance to take a peek at the new sunglass styles coming our way from all the fabulous Luxottica brands at their recent Buyers’ Days… So let’s start with some beauts from Dolce & Gabbana… Dolce & Gabbana know how to do wow! I mean WOW! Those first shades… gorgeous and very typically Dolce & Gabanna! I love the second and third pic too! Leopard Print is a true Dolce & Gabbana signature, while the polka dotty shades, have me singing, itsy bitsy tiny weeny polka dot bikini… (just change it from yellow to red okay!) And then there was Prada… Prada’s are my fave sunglasses. Chic, stylish and they always have the most amazing temple (the little arm thingie, – read my Sunglass anatomy post so that you know how to correctly refer to each piece). They’ve nailed the amazing temple once again and I love how they’ve mixed up the colours as well. Prada Baroque is back with a blinged out look! I absolutely love this style! But, sadly…

Charlotte Ronson for VOGUE Eyewear

Charlotte Ronson for VOGUE Eyewear

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen the snap with my gorgeous new Charlotte Ronson for Vogue Eyewear sunnies. They are beautiful aren’t they? I love, love, love the scalloped Top Bar and the girly, floral details in the packaging, both of which were influenced by the gorgeous and talented Eva Mendes. Designed by Charlotte Ronson, these sunnies capture the softer side of the sultry actress. These special edition sunnies are the 2014 issue of Vogue Eyewear and Luxottica’s partnership with the CDFA (Council of Fashion Designers of America).

She’s in Vogue – Eva Mendes The New Face of Vogue Eyewear

She’s in Vogue – Eva Mendes The New Face of Vogue Eyewear

We love Eva Mendes! And let’s be honest, what’s not to love? This gorgeous Latina has been named the new face for Vogue Eyewear Spring/ Summer 2013! We anticipate some smoking hot sunnies and prescription glasses! The collection that will be worn by Eva throughout the campaign, has been inspired by runway trends, reminding us that Vogue is always at the forefront of fashion. I’ve seen a few of these styles and they are just as smokin’ as Eva herself! She really does make them look good doesn’t she? And just like Eva, the six frames will feature glam and feminine frames, all with a strong personality and a sophisticated charm! Totally loving the teardrop aviator she’s wearing in the campaign image below! “I really love glasses. Whether they are prescription glasses or sunglasses, they are an extension of your personality and such a fantastic accessory I love to mix and match and play with different looks, depending on my mood and my outfit. My favorites are frames that have a slightly retro feel, specifically a little wink to the 50s, 60s or 70s. I’ve only recently had to have prescription eyeglasses, and honestly, I love it!” On her shoot for the latest Vogue campaign Eva said  “It was a beautiful day in…

Hearts In Their Eyes! The New Vogue “Gift of Love” Sunnies

Hearts In Their Eyes! The New Vogue “Gift of Love” Sunnies

With Valentine’s Day tomorrow, Vogue have created a new, special collection that will have you seeing hearts! Two glamorous styles of sunglasses have been added to their range that perfectly reflect Vogue Eyewear’s style and inspiration: audacious, trendy, colorful, contemporary. We’re absolutely in love with the cute crystal heart shaped detail that has been applied the outside of each model’s temples. The VO 2792SB model has a retro look and a timeless elegance, characterized by a round, oversized shape and a thick and slightly cat-eyed frame, enriched by the crystal heart detail on the temple. The VO2791SB model is more rigorous with a humorous feel that distinguishes this model. It has a square, thick and modern frame that perfectly merges with the fun, sweet charm of the crystal heart detail showing on the hinge. Both models are available with gradient lenses and a lovely special packaging, the perfect way to say “I love you” whenever you want to celebrate your love!

A Moment of Grace

A Moment of Grace

Ever since The September Issue was released, we’ve all had a soft spot for Grace Coddington. The Creative Director of Vogue may have been just a name on the masthead before the documentary, now she’s the unsung hero of the fashion bible. While she’s a household name now, the fashion industry has always been fans. Grace is turning designer thanks to Balenciaga. She has created a small collection of accessories for the luxury label inspired by her cat Pumpkin. The aptly named Pumpkin collection will be launched on the 6th of September, the same night as Fashion’s Night Out. The collection will feature bags and scarves as well as hand-drawn illustrations by Grace which show her cat modeling some of Balenciaga’s best looks from the past 10 years. The standout item in the collection is The Papier tote which retails for around R8300. The collection will be available in limited numbers in Balenciaga stores in New York and Los Angeles with 20% of the proceeds going towards The Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons.

Haute Around The Collar

Haute Around The Collar

When it comes to fashion, accessories are the finishing touches that complete any ensemble. Basically, they can make or break an oufit. What they should do, is break your wallet. Hot on trend at the moment are detachable collars. They can add some much needed va-va-voom to any dress or sweater. But when they cost the equivalent of a house, you may want to go with a chunky necklace instead. As much as we’d love to own a Karl Lagerfeld-designed collar, we think this is a little K-razy. But that doesn’t mean we cannot ooh and ahh. Karl Lagerfeld’s black metallic leather collar consists of over 40 carats of black diamonds and just over 22 carats of emeralds around the collar, with a hydrothermal emerald set in the front. This one-of-a-kind collar costs over R373 000 and can be bought on Net-a-Porter for those who have the cash to flash. For those who just want a peek, it’ll be displayed alongside other great pieces from Dior and Roger Vivier at the Brilliantexhibition at The Royal Hospital Chelsea in London from the 28th June 2012.

Kate Moss named Best Dressed of the Decade by Vogue

Kate Moss named Best Dressed of the Decade by Vogue

Talk about grabbing a title! The supermodel who still makes headlines and sets fashion trends all on her own, was recently named Best Dressed of the Decade by Vogue magazine. The US magazine announced Kate Moss as their choice for best dressed woman of the past 10 years earlier thus week. “We chose people who were thinking out of the box, women who look as if they’re wearing what they really wanted to wear. The whole Vogue editorial team and fashion staff brainstormed to come up with the list. No one has had more influence for the past decade on the way women have dressed than Kate Moss.” – US Vogue Magazine My style-vote is always on Victoria Beckham, but Kate Moss taking the title still puts a smile on my face. I do after all, love how the fair haired Brit embraces her look and makes everything she wears a fashion hit! Vogue also named 11 of the worlds most sartorial women, which included; The Bombshell – Blake Lively Screen Siren – Marion Cotillard The Independent – Michelle Obama American Beauty – Jessica Biel Street Cool – Alexa Chung Haute Bohemian – Sarah Jessica Parker Conscious Chic – Liya…

The faces of fashion

Paul Denai: Why are you so fascinated by the models? Carrie Bradshaw: I just love them. They’re beautiful. Sex & the City: The Real Me Vogue is clearly thinking in the same way. It’s just been reported that a new book will be launched honouring the very models that make Vogue the fashion bible it is.
