I am one of the most intense accessory-hoarder: Jewelry, bags, sunnies. In the past few months, I’ve taken great pleasure in finding very low-key brands to experiment with. Yes, Prada, Gucci, and SLP are still beautifully crafted, but it’s always exciting to find a gem outside of the big fashion-houses. Here are a few of my favorite, small brands that are turning heads this year.
Le Specs is my all-time favorite due to it’s affordability and comfort. They are crafted SO
well, and they use great materials for a lightweight feel. My favorite are the Spartans, and the Neros (bottom left, and top left). Below is Kendall Jenner in the Nero Le Specs Sunnies.
Ahlem Eyewear has been recognized for about a year due to supermodel Kendall Jenner. Once she rocked a pair of these hip glasses, the world fell in love. Their classic design is hipster-chic, and also, very comfortable. They have an array of colors and shapes that will leave you speechless. Gentle Monster has just arrived at Nordstroms, and I’ve never been happier! Their retro, gold-infused sunnies have taken the fashion-world by storm this year. First introduced to this brand by Dani Song, I have fallen in love with their more -out-of-the-box designs like the fuchsia ones at the top left corner. Please take a look at their website and fall in love! Below is Miranda Kerr in Gentle Monster
Komono is also a more affordable variations to sunnies similar to Tom Ford, Raybans, and Prada. I love their color schemes and shapes. I am in love with their hexagon-shaped sunnies at the top right corner. This is definitely a brand to keep an eye out for!
