While it is grey and depressing outside, with grey skies looming and rain about to come pouring down, I’m sat here inside with a big, steaming cup of tea, longingly looking at summer collections and accessories. Such weather calls for comfort, and comfort is often found in personal favourites and staples. One of mine are my glasses (to face or hide away from the world) and as it happens, Britain’s finest have just released their newest eyewear collection.
Burberry’s trenchcoat has long been a true icon, renowed worldwide and loved by all ages and races. Created as a protection from the elements (perfect on a rainy day like this), it has become a true staple in every woman and man’s closet. Inspired by this iconic piece, the Burberry Trench Eyewear Collection is an optical reflection of the classic. From the infamous Burberry check on the temples to the leather temple tips, these glasses reflect the craftsmanship that Burberry values. Made from enamel, metal, acetate, and leather, the collection of glasses and sunglasses embraces a classic Burberry colour palette of warm honey and gold, crisp stone and silver or black and tortoise.
Designed in Britain and hand-made in Italy, the whole collection is a proof of Burberry’s heritage and craftsmanship, as also shown in the below video that accompagnies the collection. Stepping out in your glasses has never been so fashionable.
