45 Unconventional Sunglasses Designs

From Futuristic Rihanna Collections to Pizza-Covered Lenses

— August 22, 2016 — Pop Culture
As these unique frames and lenses show, there's much more to sunglasses designs than just protecting the eyes from sun damage.

While some companies are choosing to revert to classic vintage styles, others are opting to travel forward in time -- with the Riahnna and Dior collaboration being a prime example of this. Meanwhile, some are reimagining the use of materials for highly original sunglasses designs, with companies using everything from bamboo to denim scraps to craft frames.

Not only does this generate looks not seen before, but revolutionizes how certain materials are thought of, working to expand the creative horizons of other companies and encouraging them to implement something that might have otherwise been thought of as waste.
