Ever wonder why Anna Wintour is always wearing her sunnies front row at all fashion shows? IT’S BECAUSE THE LIGHTS ARE SO FUCKING BRIGHT.
It’s not that she’s trying to be cool, it’s that her eyes will hurt.
I usually wear my glasses rather than my contacts, yet I have been known to put my sunglasses on top. If it’s not raining, I’ll wear my sunglasses. Mainly because I don’t have to make eye contact with anyone and it makes me look more menacing. Also sunglasses hide a multitude of sins.
I’m loyally wedded to my Top Gun reissue Ray Ban aviators, which were a 21st birthday present, and universally flattering. Even if they’re not, I’ll still wear them. However I have amassed a collection of glasses and sunglasses. But I’d really like a pair of these Victoria Kelsey sunglasses.
I came across Victoria Kelsey as she was a finalist in the Wolf and Badger Graduate Design Awards 2011 (which I couldn’t attend the party as I had too much fucking work to do, as usual). Sadly she didn’t win, but this young designer is sure to go far. And I rarely wear jewellery (apart from watches, mainly cos I don’t remember to wear it) but sunglasses as jewellery is a remarkable and rather winning concept. For me anyway.
And they also come in plain frames. Capital!
