Sunglasses are OUT At Grazia Towers!

06 April 2011

It’s SUNNY! And we are excited. Why? Has the surge in our vitamin D levels caused a sudden rush of blood to our heads? Is it the fact that we have an excuse for the first time this year to eat ‘Twisters’? (120 kals each, FYI) No. It’s this: we can wear our new sunnies without fear of looking ridiculous.

Now as every fashionista knows, sunglasses are an ESSENTIAL part of a fash-pack wardrobe no matter what the weather (see Wintour, A. and Beckham, V.) Here at Grazia Towers, however, we still like to wait for the sunshine before celebrating the momentous First Wear. So what have we plumped for this season? Well, it goes a little something like this…

Lovely Liz Hambleton works the LA cop look in these amazing polarised aviators from asos, available online now

Vintage Queen Naomi Attwood sports a retro pair of Joan Collins sunnies which came from Ad Hoc, and we think are pretty darn similar to some of the pairs available now at American Apparel.

Alex Butt opts for RayBan Wayfarers (classic) in an extra large frame, available now from Mr Porter.

Lily Russo has plumped for Victoria Beckham’s own shades, from her A/W '10 collection. This design is no longer available, but you can buy a similar pair at net-a-porter.

Marianne Jones has opted for these awesome Retro Superfuture specs, available at Liberty online (as well as some versions in Liberty prints, from their new sunglasses salon. Eep!)

And Laura Atkinson is sporting her (second pair; but we don’t talk about that) of toritoiseshell RayBan clubmans. Available now from


Web Ed Angela Buttolph, meanwhile, is channelling Mossy in her oversized Vogue sunnies, available ici.


Aaaand finally, Siobhan Mallen sports some amaze purple Prada’s, which are no longer available (boo), though you can still find similar ones from this season’s collections.
