Basic laws of the universe state that, while half the world’s currently sweltering in the summer sun, the other half’s squinting wonkily into a winter glare. That’s our line and we’re sticking to it, as it justifies an anytime purchase from achingly-hip French sunglasses firm Waiting For The Sun.
Hand-carved out of sustainable tea wood, the team behind the fabulous frames includes a former employee of fash legend Lacroix, no less. Available in a colour-popped range of shapes and styles, each pair arrives at your door wrapped in a one-of-a-kind scarf designed by local artists. Whichever hemisphere you’re in, that’s a pretty sweet touch. Go forth and add a touch of je ne sais pas to your day.
