summer shades

sunglasses - they're on my mind (and eyes) every summer and i usually end up buying a few different pairs of shades to fit different outfits and occasions. something that all my buying choices for sunnies have in common is a certain vintage feel i go for, classic styles that have been proving themselves for many years, timeless cool that is as good today as it was 10 years ago. i'm not one to go after a particular brands, but it does feel nice to own at least one good pair of quality glasses that won't break or scratch or bend after just a couple of weeks.

a new series of sunglasses has just been released by Carrera - the Carrera 6000, vintage-inspired and lightweight, made of high quality materials. the series comes in two styles - the sporty version and the camouflage ones with a bit of a twist in the print. i can just about see these become a hit amongst sartorialist guys in rolled up pants and buttoned shirts or girls in short jeans and leather jackets. i for one, have my pair sorted for the summer.

for more info and to see all styles available from this new series, check out the carrera website and follow them on facebook to always be up to date with the most recent developments.
