13 Mar Moschino Eyewear SS18 launch
We attended the Moschino SS18 launch at the end of February as I’m a big sunglass girl, mostly due to my sensitive green eyes and the bright African sun.
The Moschino event was a star-studded affair as per usual. The styles forming part of the SS18 collection truly has something for everyone – from the classic tortoise shell, solid colours and bling in the form of metal finishes and metallic studs for the more dramatic. Black and red featured prominently throughout the range, but there were also more playful colours such as pink, fuchsia, plum and teal.
As a big sunglasses collector and lover, some may think that I swap them out to fit my outfits. In reality, I really match my sunnies with my mood. I sometimes use the same pair for weeks or months before I change it.
I attended quite a couple of these launches in the last 6 months because I love having my finger on the pulse and it is one of my passion points.
Did you know sunglasses can go a long way to not only protect your eyes against the glaring rays of the sun, but also to prevent pre-mature ageing?
It’s true. Wearing them whenever you are exposed to the sun prevents you from squinting. This means you get less fine lines around your eyes. I have enough because of laughing and my super expressive face, but I’m okay with those.
We tried on so many pairs, as you can tell from the pics. Being a bit of a classic girl when it comes to sunglasses, I went for the more solid colours – the red and black being my favourites. I went home with a gorgeous black pair with white trimmings. These beauties.
I’ve been using mine non-stop since the launch and one thing I can tell you is that in addition to being stylish, they are also amazingly comfortable. Like little pillows on your face. This is definitely a big positive for me.
Moschino Eyewear is produced and distributed by Safilo Group in South Africa and the new SS18 collection will be available at selected stores and optometrists this month. You can read my write-up on the Havaianas Eyewear launch here for more stylish sunglass news.
