Summer Lovin'

The scattered showers and torrential rain in the past few weeks may have dampened our moods a bit, there's no denying however, that summer is upon us.  And with the arrival of summer comes a line up of outdoor festivities from lazy weekends on the beach, garden barbeques and pool parties, to boat trips and island getaways.    What's essential for any of these occasions is a perfect pair of sunnies to complete the look, so here we have rounded up some of our favourites. rayban-group

Wayfarer and Aviator styles have become a style mainstay and a total wardrobe essential.   The classic silhouettes are easy to wear (dare we say all kinds of face shapes) but the seasonal updates of mirrored lens in an array of cool hues and colors add a fashionable edge!  Ray-ban earned extra brownie points with their fold-able wayfarer complete with a compact leather case that will fits perfectly into the trendy smaller sized shoulder bag, another key item to rock this season!   Ray-ban-2

Let your sunnies be the focal point of your outfit with this season's over-the-top styles.  From the heavily embellished as seen in Dolce & Gabbana and Versace, to the bold and colorful designs from artistic maverick Prada and Miu Miu, House of Holland, the special collaboration of Craig & Karl for Les Specs, and new-to-the-scene eyewear label Revé by René (available now at key stores around the world like Colette in Paris and On Pedder in Hong Kong). over the top_dg-versace-revebyrene.pngFrom left to right: Floral embelllished Dolce & Gabbana, studded Versace, groovy feline Revé by René HH_5

The Man Repeller X Superga 2nd Edition

What happens when one of our favourite bloggers and brands come together in a special collaboration?

WE DO OUR HAPPY DANCE!

4-in-1_MR x Superga

For the second time around, Superga collaborates with Leandre Medine of The Man Repeller for another collection of amazingly cool kicks due to hit store this month! Check out this video featuring the blogger-designer doing her happy dance here .

The partnership initially began in August 2013 with the debut collection featuring lush velvet and metallic boucle fabrics which had us fall head-over-heels for.  This time, the blogger designer turned to luxurious textures and introduces satin and metallic tweed variations.  The pairing of the luxe textiles with the simplicity of the classic sneaker is such a perfect marriage. "Satin is one of my favourite fabrics - it catches color so well - and is traditionally used on very formal shoes, so I thought it would be cool to put it on sneakers," said Leandra and we can't agree more!

We are having a bit of trouble choosing between classic black, understated denim blue, luscious olive green and mustard yellow, and the oh-so-pretty ballet pink in the classic satin style... and to make matters worse (or better!) there is also a mule sneaker version that is just so perfect for the summer months!  Eenie meenie miney mo....
