If you what you need is prescription eyewear, stop into Alain Afflelou, on floor 0. For the latest fashions, you’ll find both Quars and Oakley on the ground floor. And there are also great shades among the accessories in the men’s and women’s fashion shops in illa Carlemany, Andorra’s centre. Sunglasses are the ultimate summer accessory, and the different designer brands are brave enough to give them a touch of flair, making them a must-have for any look.
So, what will they be wearing this summer? Well, it looks like rectangular shapes are here to stay. They were a big hit last year and they’re back again this season with some minor tweaks in terms of size and shape. In a word, they’re not quite as narrow or as small as they were before. As to colour, anything goes: red, green, blue…. Yet black and tobacco brown never go out of style!
In fact, the hottest new trend this year resides precisely in the colours, as we’ll soon be seeing sunglasses in hues of green, pumpkin orange and neon pink. Inspired by the 90s, these colours undoubtedly give special fashion flair to anyone wearing them, as will another of 2022’s big trends: glasses where the two lenses fuse together, forming one, like the ones that actress and singer JLo famously wore a few years ago.
Moderation, on the other hand, comes in the form of frames in either white or black. And here we’re talking about moderation in colour, as there is no moderation at all in the shapes: large, bold, retro silhouettes are taking over. While white frames very much define the season, black frames are a basic that always conveys elegance.
But beyond shape and colour, the bottom line is that we wear sunglasses to protect our eyes. And that is why it’s important to look for quality in the lenses as well!
