Gavin and Zuma Rossdale sport matching shades

Gavin and Zuma Rossdale sport matching shades


Gavin and Zuma Rossdale wearing matching aviator sunglasses. 


Gavin Rossdale and his son Zuma attended the world premiere of Gnomeo & Juliet last weekend. And to mark the occasion, Gavin dressed his tiny tot in some funky attire including matching shades. Perhaps to best bear the inevitable flashes of the paparazzi.

But they were not the only stars in brightly coloured sunglasses on the red carpet. Elton John and his partner David Furnish also sported novelty shades with Gnomeo characters on the frames. Cool or crazy? What do you think?

Tod's to restore the Colosseum

Three cheers for luxury accessories brand Tod’s, which will fund a £21.5million restoration of the Coliseum in Rome.
Tods 0034 Brown Gradient
President of the Tod’s group, Diego Della Valle, said 'We believe that because the Tod’s Group is a strong global representative of ‘Made in Italy’, it is both an honour and our duty to contribute to the support of our country’s image and credibility, as well as its cultural heritage.'
The Coliseum is still a popular tourist attraction but has become damaged by pollution. It will remain open to tourists throughout the restoration.
We wonder what Tod’s will get in return for their generosity? Permission to place billboards of Tod’s sunglasses outside?

Aurevoir Paris

Yves Saint Laurent brought menswear to a close at Paris yesterday. Creative director Stefano Pilati played with volume by pairing slim trousers with blouson-style jackets and even capes, adding pops of colour via checks and bright polo necks.

Equally impressive is the 2011 Yes Saint Laurent sunglasses collection that looks sophisticated and elegant with luxurious prints and patterns.
With summer bearing upon us, we have put together a list of sunglasses that we would love to wear for our beach holidays. At the top of our list is the beautifully styled Yves Saint Laurent 6324 in Grey. With the Yves Saint Laurent signature on the left lens, these sunglasses are everything you could want for long afternoons by the pool.

Next is the Yves Saint Laurent 2307 in Havana which gives this frame a seductive and sophisticated feel. Sleek and shiny metal stems show off the frame front in all its glory, giving this frame a deluxe feel. The thickness of the arms keeps the frame contemporary and maintains the high end feel.

Last but by no means least is the Yves Saint Laurent 2305 in Dark Havana that reflects a modernistic sixties style. The sophisticated palette of dark tortoiseshell is typical of the French
fashion house designer and the sleek simple arms hold intricate branded detailing for an altogether, chic shade.

Spring Summer 2011 trends

Hold the phone – stock for Spring/Summer 2011 has arrived and is leaving us speechless.
Dior Ondine Mauve
The future is bright with vibrant colours and shapes. Pinks and purples for women, blues and greens for men. Leading the way for the season is Dior – John Galliano knows no wrong – with the sizzling hot Dior Ondine. This luxurious collection includes violet and mauve frames that are decorated in Swarovski crystals. They are gorgeous.
Tom Ford James Silver
There is also the Tom Ford James in silver with brilliantly blue lenses. Summer is full of many
tempting shades - watch this space – but we have singled these out for their bright blue lenses, slick silver frame and oversized structure. Tom Ford sunglasses will take any outfit to the max. But we think they will look great worn with a light blue denim shirt, dark denim jeans and white plimsolls.
Thoughts?

Baby Bloom has arrived

Miranda Kerr wearing Ray-Ban 2140 Wayfarer sunglasses
Congratulations to Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr on the birth of their baby son.
Ray-Ban 2140 Wayfarer Tortoise
The supermodel gave birth at a Los Angeles hospital with Orlando and her family by her side. Both mother and son are said to be doing ‘very well’, according to his grandmother.
The couple has since posted an intimate photo showing their baby son Flynn, who weighed in at 9 pounds and 13 ounces.
Miranda has also revealed, “I gave birth to him naturally; without any pain medication and it was a long, arduous and difficult labour, but Orlando was with me the whole time supporting and guiding me through it. I could not have done it without him.”
Perhaps we should send Flynn a pair of Zoobug sunglasses. After all, it is never too early to wear
sunglasses.

Helena Bonham Carter stands out at Golden Globes

Helena Bonham Carter wearing vintage Oliver Peoples Sheldrake sunglasses
The 2011 Golden Globes market the return of old Hollywood glamour, with Helena Bohem Carter opting to cover up on the red carpet in vintage sunglasses.
Oliver Peoples Sheldrake Storm with Grey
She lost out to Melissa Leo for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture. But she more than made up for it with her chosen accessories.
The actress chose a colourful multi-layered Vivienne Westwood dress… and mismatched shoes. But scores maximum points in the style stakes in the Oliver Peoples Sheldrake. With a round frame and minimal detailing, the Sheldrake is a great match for Helena and her red carpet ensemble. Enjoy the benefits of vintage looking frame while avoiding the rusting hinges of actual antiques.

We also have to give special mention to Johnny Depp who also choose the Sheldrake but in a different colour.
If this is what Helena wore to the Golden Globes, who know what she has planned for the Oscars!

Devendra Banhart at the Rainbow House

Oliver Peoples 2011 campaign
Devendra Banhart takes a break from his prolific career in folk music to spearhead Oliver
Peoples 2011 campaign. In a departure from last season’s fantasy theme, Oliver Peoples move from the fantastic to the provocative with a series of photos directed by acclaimed photographer Lisa Eisner.
Devendra poses with his real-life lover, set designer Rebecca Schwartz, and the intimacy of their relationship is captured openly on film while they lounge in the Californian sun wearing not very much at all.
Lisa says “We really wanted to find a couple who were in love and would allow us to be voyeurs in their relationship. Most people are not interested in having their intimacy on film. Devendra and Rebecca were beyond perfect, beautiful and fun together. They were not pretentious or guarded – they were real!”
The stylish duo are pictured in Oliver Peoples’ frames for the season ahead, frames heavily inspired by vintage fashion but enhanced with Oliver Peoples unrivalled style. The distinct D-shaped lens of the Jack One sunglass takes inspiration from the customised aviators Neil Diamond wore on the album cover of “Jonathan Livingston Seagull".
Oliver Peoples is well-known for producing spirited short films, combined with still photographs that bring to life their collections each season. Oliver Peoples Devendra Banhart at the Rainbow House is no exception.
Devendra is the ideal front-man for this campaign since he reflects the understated qualities that Oliver Peoples are revered for the world over. Both wait to be discovered rather than scream for your attention and their alliance of subtlety pays off. Oliver Peoples make voyeurs of us all and the fresh personal light that illuminates their new range show they are something worth waiting for.

Cher Lloyd gives her look the fashion factor

Cher Lloyd wearing aviator sunglasses
Cher Lloyd gives her look the fashion factor with a pair of oversized aviators as she attends lunch in Miami. 
Ray-Ban CATS 5000 Black Glitter
Since coming fourth in the X Factor, things have been looking up for Cher. The wannabe pop star has been living the high life on her current trip to the US. She flew first class from Miami to Los Angeles on Wednesday. But her luggage was nowhere to be seen as she arrived in the sunshine capital.
Dressed in a red fluffy top, tiger print jeans and heeled boots, Cher only had her hand luggage to hand. Luckily, however, she had kept her stylish aviators atop her head to hide her private gaze from public life. Cher is seldom snapped without a pair of sunglasses and loves an oversized
aviator with those edgy good looks.
Steal her style with a pair of Ray-Ban CATS 5000 aviators in black glitter. This Sunglasses Shop favourite packs a punch with its solid dark framework and sleek arms. Branding is featured on
the on the lens and details include a Ray-Ban signature on the temple. A great unisex style that puts the X Factor into any shades collection.

His and her sunglasses for royal wedding

Romeo Beckham posing with the rest of the Beckham family. 
Romeo Beckham is rumoured to be designing sunglasses for Prince William and Kate Middleton for their upcoming wedding.
Prince William has reportedly chosen plain black sunglasses whilst Kate has gone for a more colourful frame.

Romeo Beckham has apparently signed up to create a range of eyewear for fashion conscious kids. He is also said to have already developed a real eye for fashion.
"He has strong opinions on what works and what doesn't, and has been badgering David and Victoria for months about designing his own sunglasses. It is no passing whim - Victoria said she'd only back the project if he was certain he wanted to do it" A friend of the Beckham family told the Daily Mirror.
While some top end designer brands – Ray-Ban, Carrera and Police – already offer kids’ sunglasses, there is still a gap in the market for designer shades for kids that are 100 UV protected and trendy.
Taking inspiration from his mother’s own eyewear collection, the range will be called RB and include a cool ‘RB’ motif.
Victoria and David Beckham are both said to be thrilled at his ambition. In March 2010, singer-turned-fashion-designer, Victoria told Grazia, "I think that my middle son thinks that he is going to take over. Romeo likes to get involved"
"He likes to go out in a suit with a bowler hat… he's a real fashion lover,’ she added.
We expect the aspiring fashion designer will call upon celebrity pals Suri Cruise and Willow Smith to model the frames. Not to mention eleven-year-old Brooklyn and five year old Cruz Beckham. And we thought we had a privileged upbringing.

Look luxe in leather

Sometimes three little letters is all it takes to convey big feelings about sunglasses. And the collection behind the expression is oh-my-god gorgeous.
Chanel 4192Q Silver
The Chanel leather collection is the perfect match to the Coco Cocoon handbag made of the
same leather on the sunglasses. The lambskin leather used is softer than that used by other brand which is treated in the same way as the quilted Chanel bag.

Joining the collection is the Chanel 4192Q. This stunning frame is dressed in luxurious leather embossed with the Chanel logo. The Chanel hallmark is also on the inside frame which proves the frame is authentic rather than a clever fake. A must for any die hard fan of all things
Chanel. What better way to bring in the New Year than by looking luxe in leather?

The Seventies swing into 2011

Winter may not yet be over, but fashionistas are already thinking about what to wear this spring/summer 2011. The seventies are again the overriding influence of the season. So expect to see a lot more flared denim jeans and trousers.

Seventies sunglasses are also hot this spring/summer 2011 and are an essential for the months ahead. Here is our favourite seventies sunglass to help give you a head start.
Jil Sander 642S Pink
Sunglasses do not come more glamorous than these, Jil Sander 642S. Cat eyed and chic, it captures my favourite fifties aesthetic. This handcrafted frame is irresistible and has mirrored lenses. Temple detailing is applied in classic Jil Sander fashion. Crystal colouring keeps this frame bang up to date. This frame is stunning and can enhance a look for any occasion. Every last pair of Jil Sander sunglasses is of impeccable quality and this one is no exception.
