Illesteva Leonard Round Framed Sunglasses
You must have noticed; tortoiseshell sunglasses are now worn more than ever. Previously favoured by stars, artists and individualists in general, the trend is at the danger of becoming mainstream. The traditional shape is that of the typical 1950s wayfarer style, but by having a slightly more ‘feminine’ colour combination, it is much more exotic and interesting.
Their growing appeal is understandable, as we are witnessing an era when accessories cease to be the privilege of women’s fashion. Men’s accessories are becoming much more colourful, attractive and necessary if you want to develop a distinct personal style.
As this is a trend that is at danger of becoming too widespread, you should be looking at purchasing a pair that are still just as unique and individual. You want something that isn’t the same as every other guy on the high street or beach; a pair of sunglasses with character.
Standing apart from many others, Illesteva is an eyewear brand that is known for pushing the boundaries by experimenting with diverse materials, including wood and buffalo horn. The Leonard round framed sunglasses shown below are a perfect example of why this brand is so highly recognised. Apart from the beautiful and traditional tortoiseshell pattern, they feature a rare circular ‘cat-eye’ silhouette that is perfect for distancing yourself from traditional wayfarer styles.
New stock is arriving soon at Mr.Porter. These sold out extremely quickly the first time round, so you better sign up for updates if you want to get your hands on a pair.
