TOMS Lobamba sunglasses
TOMS have one of the most inspiring stories of any clothing company currently trading. A few years ago their ‘One for One’ initiative took the summer by storm as the general public embraced both the idea of helping the poorest people on the planet and the rise of the humble espadrille.
Their overnight success pushed them to new heights and in 2011 they released a range of premium eyewear with the same philosophy behind the lenses; your money providing glasses, eye surgery and treatment for those who can’t afford to help themselves.
There are now eleven styles in the TOMS eyewear collection, updated for autumn 2013.
The highlight of the 2013 range is the Lobamba silhouette – a real eye-catcher with its fused Clubmaster/Wayfarer design. As well as its striking aesthetic, the frames come with 100% UVA/UVB protection as standard and the thick acetate and 5-barrell rivet hinges make these a sturdy, durable pair of sunglasses. They are hand finished and made here in the UK, which only adds to the sense of quality.
Priced at £125, they are available in twelve colour ways, from classic tortoiseshell styles to bold block-colours and clear acetate versions.
Charitable values, premium quality goods and timeless style; it is a blend you will be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. You can buy the TOMS Lobamba sunglasses now at Toms.co.uk.
Looking good isn’t important, it’s everything.
