For past couple of years, acetate-framed sunglasses have been thick on the ground. (In fact, you’re probably on your second or third pair by now.)

Which is why we’d like to draw your attention back to the metallic end of the sunglass spectrum. The sorts of wire-rimmed shades that were championed by the likes of industrialists and John Lennon. In other words, it’s time to go beyond the acetate.
