Keen to embrace sunglasses season but can’t decide between an on-trend pair and a more timeless style? Our men’s accessories buyers Harry Luk and John Leung make their cases for the opposing teams.
“Give me a trendy pair of sunglasses and my outfit is done — it’s the lazy man’s hack for looking stylish in a second. Plus, you’re way less likely to lose your sunglasses when they’re shiny and colourful. And who doesn’t want to see the world through rose, yellow or — in the case of my new favourite new BALENCIAGA pair — orange-tinted glasses?” — John Leung
“For me, a classic shape with tortoiseshell-effect acetate is good, and will always be good. Plain and simple. You’re going to have them forever, and you’re only going to need one pair as they go with everything in your wardrobe, from suits to leather jackets. To me, a timeless sunglasses investment is like a Marie Kondo cleanse of your eyewear collection, and that’s always going to be a solid idea.” — Harry Luk
