Here's Where To Shop The Ultimate Summer Accessory - Sunglasses

Editors posted on 14 April

Stepping out in Delhi or Gurgaon during the day involves carrying a truckload of stuff with you. Sunscreen? Check. Water? Check. Sunglasses? Grab a funky pair at one of these stores and face that scorching sun in style.

Go Spiff

If you’re a fan of the elegant 40s or the rebellious 70s or the whacky 90s, Go Spiff. Started by Mansi and Pritish, Go Spiff keeps it old-school with their John Lennon/Depp inspired sunnies sourced from across the country. Pick up a vintage pair for yourself from their Facebook page.

House Of Blondie

House of Blondie stands for all things vintage. Run by Kareena Vinaik, everything you find in the store has been curated personally by her during her travels to Europe and there’s just one of everything, so chances are when you pick up those Audrey Hepburn-ish shades, you’re going to be the only one in the city donning them.

Sayon Eyewear

We love our mahoganies and teaks when it comes to doing up our homes but wooden sunglasses? They’re legit. Designer Sayon Chatterjee makes fine hand-crafted wooden sunglasses in a variety of shapes and shades for all our different face structures.

Find their Facebook page here.

Claire’s

Although this accessory store is targeted to teens, it has some great finds, even for the grown-ups out there. They have a pretty wide variety of sunglasses in all shapes, sizes and colours. From regular wayfarers and cat-eyes, they even have some quirky sunnies with things like moustaches hanging off them.

PropShop24

This quirk-filled website does not disappoint with its eyewear collection. From Lennon-inspired reflectors to heart-shaped lenses, to colourful angular hexagons, the feel here is young, kitschy and fun.

ZARA

The look at Zara this season is very vintage {we love that the 70s are back in vogue!} and the sunglasses are no exception. There’s a limited collection but this beautiful ocean blue, round pair is quite the statement-maker we think. These are only available at ZARA stores; unfortunately you can’t shop these online.

Dulce Couture

Basic wayfarers, round shades and some super quirky flower-shaped and heart-shaped ones, Dulce Couture is turning our sunglasses into fun glasses. And they’re mostly priced under INR 1,000. Yay.

Pataaka

Pataaka stocks some really unusual sunglasses, perfect for the more experimental sorts. Cases in point – this half-moon shaped pair or this pair with a barely there, gold frame and round lenses. On discount, you could score a pair for INR 699, so make sure you look through the collection with your glasses on.

Woodgeek

Woodgeek started with plywood, but has progressed to rosewood and bamboo to make their sunglasses more durable. Whereas we’re loving their existing designs, you can also get them to customise.
