The Retro Lenses

A wave of retro-inspired sunglasses seem to be having a moment. I’ve always been a fan – a myriad of styles over the years have graced my face, most noticeably in the John Lennon-esque round varietal. But the cat eye (narrow at Gucci & stout at Céline) and the oblong shape (seen oversized at Saint Laurent) are equally as alluring.

I might be pining for a certain pair myself to wear well into fall..

Would you wear a retro style or is it too kitschy?
