Gucci's new 'Cat-eye' sunglasses are an avant-garde statement accessory drawing inspiration from sculptural styles that were prevalent in the 50s and 60s. Remixing a classic cat eye shape, the sunglasses are accented with spoked edges and feature an acetate frame with orange, mother of pearl, grey and black hues.
Made in Italy, the luxe sunglasses also boast white grey lenses and are accented with Gucci's iconic G detail logo in a gold metal hue. Offering 100% UVA/UVB protection, these retro inspired shades stay true to the Italian fashion brand's opulent aesthetic and designer Alessandro Michele's loud and playful point of view.
They also speak to the fashion industry's newfound obsession with camp and maximalism after a long-term focus on simplicity, illustrating consumer desires for pieces that make them stand out rather than blend in.
