I have to admit I have a sunglasses fetish and its becoming a problem. I have over 12 pairs of shades and the collection is growing by the minute. So you know putting this list together was hard for me. I feel everyone needs that classic pair of black frames that they could throw on with just about anything. I tried to find just some nice frames that could fit multiple occasions. I try my best to post items that are available to purchase online, for all my readers to buy. So check out the list and comment below on your favorites…
Retro Super Future makes so great eyewear, they are hand-made in Italy and are worn by many socialites and celebrities. They are well-known in the hip-hop culture for their Flat- Top frames. This pair is in that category but includes gold-tone temples and croc-stamped leather arms. One of my favorite pair of shades for the summer…
Grey Ant is another one of my personal favorite eyewear brands. They have some very different designs and seems to enjoy being the different one out of the bunch. I love the design and funkyness of the frame. Read below on how Grey Ant describes this pair:
BERLIN: THIS IS OUR HOMAGE TO ONE OF THE MOST STIMULATING CITIES IN EXISTENCE WHERE ONES INNER MOXIE IS ENCOURAGED TO EMERGE. OUR‘BERLIN’ MODEL COMBINES HIGH GLOSS ACETATE WITH A METAL BROW PIERCING AND EAR LOBE PLUG AS TO INTEGRATE THE INFAMOUS RED LIGHT DISTRICT WITH SOPHISTICATED GRUNEWALD. FROM THE PARLOURS OF PAIN AND HIGH SOCIETY BLAZES A TRULY UNIQUE PIECE OF EYEWEAR.
Gucci makes some awesome pieces and even better glasses. Gucci has been around for decades and keep impressing us with every collection. These pair of shades had nice chain like black arms that help make them different from all the other aviator style frames.
L.G.R. is a recent find while doing research for this post. The brand founded by Luca Gnecchi Ruscone, L.G.R. is inspired by a long-lost box of colonial sunglasses, the designer rediscovered on a trip to Africa. Drawing on the impeccable craftsmanship and design of these antique styles, he decided to produce small runs of authentic, handmade sunglasses of premium quality and style. I think this specific pair are classic and simple.
To end my top 5 picks of black frames for the summer, I choose The Dita Grandmaster Two sunglasses. These frames have been worn by Floyd Mayweather and Fabolous.
