All eyes are literally on London this summer as the world’s top eyewear designers gear up for the 2012 Olympic Games. Paying homage to British heritage, Gucci’s sporty City Series shade, artfully adorned with UK colored lenses and an inside London cityscape, is sure to tie your britches in a bunch. If you prefer to go 100% Union Jack, than Jimmy Choo’s 80’s inspired ALEX sunglass is your new best friend. The square-shaped acetate sunny is available in four bold colors, all featuring different lenses: red frame with smoke lenses, blue frame with blue mirrored lenses, white frames with blue mirrored lenses, and black frames with smoke lenses. To top it off, Jimmy Choo appeases the history buff by inscribing the meaning of the Union Jack on the inside of the frame and side arms of the shade.
I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether you prefer Gucci’s sporty City Series shade or Jimmy Choo’s 100% Union Jack wayfarer. Either way, the world is about to become a bit more beautiful as the patriotic glamour once reserved for UK’s Kate’s (Middleton and Moss) is bestowed to the fashionable commoner.
