the sun can come out to play anytime

So, last year when the Baroque Deluxe Sunglasses from the Prada Spring / Summer 2011 Runway Collections and the Minimal Baroque styles came out at Sunglass Hut I took too long deliberating over whether to get them or the futuristic round shaped Stella McCartney’s (which I finally ended up getting) that when I finally had a chance to go to Sunglass Hut and get the Prada’s – the limited sunglasses were all out (insert sad face).
My love for sunglasses is actually quite ridiculous. The other day I realised that I own so many pair of sunglasses, ranging from designer frames to the R20 versions you buy at markets, that I don’t even know where they all are and that like some of my shoes still in shoe boxes I don’t even wear them anymore… That alone should be reason enough not to get new sunglasses, but the heart wants what it wants… Which is why when I walked into a Sunglass Hut the other day and saw that they had the two new styles within the Minimal Baroque range, launched in conjunction with the release of eight photographs made by young artists selected in collaboration with Vogue Talent in stock; I didn’t think twice this time, I just walked straight to the till and made them mine.
The two new styles have been stripped down a bit in comparison to the ones created for Spring / Summer 2011 Runway collections (pictured on Solange Knowles below) as the curlicues have been kept on either the front of the sunglasses or on the arms of the sunglasses. But even with the slight simplification, the sunglasses are still everything the Prada Baroque Deluxe sunglasses are: stylish, fun and original, which is why I really couldn’t say no to them. And why you’ll probably catch me wearing them in a shopping mall, office block… where ever there is light, natural or artificial really.
