FOR SUMMER 2019: THOMAS SABO SUNGLASSES COMBINE MODERN COOLNESS AND RETRO CLASSIC

Summer has only really arrived when you are wearing sunglasses. On the one hand they protect our eyes from harmful Australian sun's UV radiation, on the other hand they count as one of the most popular fashion statements and refine casual outfits. This is why the international jewellery and watch brand THOMAS SABO is now for the first time also using its unmistakable DNA in its own expressive sunglasses line. Inspired by timelessly cool retro sunglasses styles, such as Pilot sunglasses or Panto glasses, THOMAS SABO also focuses on an expressive design language. Accordingly, neither the absolute classic of the 50s - the round sunglasses - nor the current en-vogue trapeze shape is be missing from the collection.

THE RETRO SUNGLASSES BRING BACK THE GLAMOUR OF THE OLD HOLLYWOOD DAYS

The great acting legends of old Hollywood captivated not only with their unprecedented acting talent, but also with their unmistakable charisma, often characterised by a certain aloofness. A fashion accessory that was regularly seen in the iconic photos of these Hollywood legends was sunglasses.

Mirrored sunglasses hide the eyes, marking our eyes unreadable for people around us. That makes us look daring and mysterious. A stylistic tactic that celebrities still like to use today. This is what the American actor Jack Nicholson, known for films such as "The Shining", once said: "With my sunglasses on, I'm Jack Nicholson. Without them, I'm just a fat sixty-year-old." When we wear sunglasses, we simply feel more self-confident, daring and rebellious.

Trend tip: Mirrored sunglasses with a metallic sheen have a particularly cool effect.

THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE NEW SUNGLASSES COLLECTION

The new THOMAS SABO Sunglasses Collection comprises 16 sunglasses models in 48 colours. These 48 sunglasses are divided into six lines: HARRISON, JOHNNY, JAMES, MARLON, ROMY and MIA. Inspired by retro sunglasses styles, THOMAS SABO focuses on self-confident oversized styles, extraordinary all-one-colour looks and colour nuances inspired by gemstones such as rose quartz, mother-of-pearl and smoky quartz. Each pair of glasses is characterised by high manufacturing quality, superior comfort from acetate edging of the temple ends, high-quality - partly mirrored - lenses as well as special finishing for iconic details. Each pair of THOMAS SABO sunglasses also comes with an elegant sunglasses case. And you'll never leave your sunglasses behind with the classic sunglasses chains.

FACE TO FACE: FIND YOUR PERFECT SUNGLASSES

There are many sunglasses trends. Irrespective of trends, you should choose sunglasses firstly that you feel comfortable in; and secondly that fit the shape of your face. Of course, every face is unique and beautiful in its own individual way. However, there are a few small rules you can follow to find glasses that ideally emphasise your best features. The basic rule applies: sunglasses look particularly good on your face when they contrast with your facial features.

In other words, if you have a rounded face, angular glasses will positively emphasise it. People with angular faces can give their face softer features with the help of rounded sunglasses. If you feel like it, shake it up, break these rules radically. Because after all: Fashion should be fun! This particularly applies to sunglasses. They stand for summer and joy in life like almost no other fashion accessory.

THOMAS SABO DESIGN CODES REINTERPRETED

A golden, beautifully gleaming frame, warm gradient lenses and a special sense of iconic detail: THOMAS SABO sunglasses promise a summer full of intensity. In addition to lenses that conjure up sunsets in the sky, you will also find the well-known design codes of the THOMAS SABO Sterling Silver Jewellery Collection. Famous motifs such as the skull, the cross or the dragon-fly enhance some sunglasses models. Also graphic embossing and reliefs, vintage decorations and sophisticated 3D styles and hinges.
