We Rounded up This Season’s Wildest Sunglasses

Sunglasses come in such a wide range of shapes and sizes that it can be hard to know where to begin. Despite the array on offer, most usually end up opting for a safe classic. There’s nothing wrong with that. After all, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black Wayfarers.

That’s not what this roundup is about, though. This selection is for the wild ones, the dreamers who dare, and those for whom blending into a crowd is the stuff of nightmares.

With the right pair of loud sunglasses, you can command attention from the moment you’re seen. To help you do just that, we’ve journeyed to the edges of sunglasses design, leaving no stone unturned, and investigating each and every dark, forgotten corner to bring you the wildest pairs the world has to offer.
