Why the shades of the moment have us seeing the world through rose-tinted glasses

Choosing sunglasses has become about much more than just shape alone. Because whether you’re a cat-eye person, or an aviator person or a square-frame person, what will really make a difference to your overall look, is colour. Namely, lens colour.

Recently we’ve noticed the re-emergence of tinted lenses as the style of choice for those in the know. Call it a 60s redux or an Elton John homage, or simply a reflection of bold way Gen-Z is dressing, but colourful lenses are taking over the accessory space and are the perfect way to add an interesting touch to everyday looks.

As always, whenever we think about upgrading our sunglasses it’s to the experts at Parker & Co. that we turn. And with a raft of recently-arrived men’s and women’s styles from brands like Moscot and Celine, this eyewear mecca is making it easier than ever to buy into this trend. These are some of our favourites.
