Lacoste introduces their latest collection of eyewear with an exciting and vibrant mix of styles that give a nod to 1960’s glamour and vintage styling. Lacoste takes you on a journey of the Mediterranean with its Spring/Summer 2009 collection.

Drawing inspiration from the glitz and elegance of the Riviera, these large retro frames in sorbet colors provide the ultimate cover-up for lazy days by the pool.

Here are my picks from the Lacoste Spring/Summer 2009 eyewear collection:

Large sunglasses are big again this season, so these oval-shaped Jackie O-inspired ‘Cannes’ shades are the perfect choice for a 1960’s look. With a slim arm in contrast to their large frame, this retro style is sure to be a firm favorite through the summer months, especially when teamed with a printed maxi dress.

Another hot favorite for a retro look is the ‘Antibe.’ This stylish oversized frame with sunbursts of yellow and red will complement the simplest of outfits and ensure that you stand out from the crowd.

For a more statement look, opt for ‘Nice.’ The rectangular shape will flatter most face shapes and is a great daywear choice. Available in understated beige, moss green or deep red, these frames work great with this season’s folklore theme.

Simple yet still oozing sophistication, ‘Cap Martin’ is the ultimate choice for a carefree day of shopping. These frames have a slightly rounder shape with subtle branding. The look is effortlessly chic.

Finally, the ‘Avignon’ is a must-have when choosing an aviator-style shade. This sleek gold frame is refined and polished and guaranteed to be a hot favorite this summer.
