London-based designer Paul Smith largely adheres to the ages-old tradition of proper British fashion, but he still loves thumbing his nose at it once in a while. His signature look is an irreverent mash-up of classic English styles — think extra-sharp tailoring juxtaposed against bright stripes and contrasting colors. Since launching his line in Paris in 1976, Smith has established himself as one of England's most prominent designers. Over the last 35 years, his eponymous brand has expanded to include everything from women’s wear to furniture — all with a famous fan base that counts stylish stars like Jude Law and David Bowie among its (not unsubstantial) number. The Paul Smith eyewear collection includes vintage-inspired eyeglass frames and sunglasses hand-crafted from durable plastics and designed with comfort in mind. Polarized lenses and UV protection are some of the key benefits offered by Smith’s sunglasses, which feature the label’s trademark (and, occasionally, bits of wisdom from the designer) inscribed on the interior stem.
The perfect pair of sunglasses can change your look entirely. A pair of poppy red shades adds a dash of downtown cool to drab office ensembles; classic wire aviators show you're not a slave to the latest trends. Those are just two of the styles that abound in our sale, which feature designs by three eyewear heavy-hitters. Couldn't you use another pair of shades in your life?
The eyes have it with these serious sunglasses. See the world through the amber-colored lenses of a pair of retro-cool Paul Smith frames, or steal some shade with smoky aviators by Mosley Tribes.
If you've made it through the summer thus far without sunglasses, we congratulate you. But there's no need to wince any longer, thanks to this sale featuring a who's-who of eyewear. Barton Perreira, Mosley Tribes, Oliver Peoples, Paul Smith Optical, Sonia Rykiel Homme and Super offer a range of models for every shape of face and shade of style.
The Paul Smith assortment sports Sir Paul’s signature combo of understated style and colorful detail, while those from Mosley Tribes offer the kind of attitude and technological innovation that have caught the eye of Kanye West and Robert Downey Jr.
