SUNGLASSES FOR SUN & SNOW
Are you lucky enough to be jetting away this winter?
Whether to the slopes or the seaside, Oliver Goldsmith have got your sunglass requirements covered.
So, if you’re escaping the grey and murky mornings for beach walks and a rum punch, or perhaps you’ll be whizzing down the slopes and sipping on a vin chaud – either way, we’re incredibly jealous.
But jealousy aside, there are two things we really care about at OG; firstly, your eye health and secondly, looking good whilst protecting your eyes…so don’t let the glare of the sun ruin your vibe or your vision.
If you’re hitting the slopes, then our top three frames for sunning yourself in the mountains go as follows.
The YUHU; a total showstopper, this oversized frame wraps beautifully around the face, blocking out any unwanted glare from the snow. It was originally designed for Audrey Hepburn in 1966 for the film ‘Two For the Road’ – and remains one of the most striking frames in our collection. Totally unique and wonderfully distinctive, it’s the perfect frame to take you from alpine swooshing to Après sloshing.
The 1920’s; a great uni-sex frame inspired by the decade of the same name. The leather side cups provide wonderful protection from mountain glare, but the small flat-based lenses allow for maximum tanning.
The 1990’s; is a stylised throwback to the 90’s. This flat-top visor features striking geometric lines and there is just something achingly cool about it.
If you’re beaching in Bermuda this winter, then why not take a look at our three favourites for enjoying sandy sundowners….
The 1940’s – made from hypoallergenic stainless steel, this classic teardrop aviator is perfect for sunshine chilling. Its lightweight frame stops you from getting too hot and its classic styling looks perfect on both men and women.
The 1970’s – a style inspired by the 70’s decade, this distinctive frame is oversized and confident, yet it’s stainless steel makeup, makes it lightweight and incredibly comfortable, perfect for beachside lounging.
The Koko – this frame screams glamour. It is one of our most popular and archetypal sunglass designs that dates back from 1966 and serves as the perfect frame for poolside posing.
Last but not least, don’t forget about the kids! Oliver Goldsmith has an amazing collection of sunglasses for children that are incredibly robust and are fitted with premium UVA/UVB Kidz Zeiss sun lenses, essential for the snow or sun.
