Spring Shades are back and there are some hot new styles to choose from. We’ve selected three that are contemporary, high-fashion, and will perfectly frame just about any face. Of course you should look up those glasses charts to figure out which shape best suits you, but these will do the job. If they’re too pricey, local markets should have knock-off versions for under $20 so you can stock up on them.
PERSOL PO3025S, $310
Blue Enamel Tracery Cufflinks
The atmosphere of the Mediterranean Island of Capri, Italy, has inspired the Persol Capri Collection. The island’s mix of history, events, culture and nature is what has made it beloved by so many artists, intellectuals, writers and aristocrats over the years. Every handcrafted detail of this havana frame symbolizes the distinctive architecture of Casa Malaparte, known as the ‘red arrow at the horizon.’ Lenses are crystal green. The new Persol Capri Collection is a must-have masterpiece of art.
Mix the glasses up with these hand-made glass cufflinks:
