With the summer comes our summer wardrobe, and topping the list is the most pervasive of summer accessories, sunglasses. So eschew the flashy-luxe sunglasses brands and take a look at the Swedish classics from unisex brand, Monokel.

 

Of course we all love how wearing sunglasses makes us feel, but for those of us who think it does actually have to be gloriously sunny before we get our beloved shades out of the drawer they’ve been languishing in all winter, now’s the time to go shopping.

Eschewing the flashiness of the high profile, luxury brands is a very cool move for sunglasses wearers. Afterall, for the ultimate mystery bringing accessory, what could be a better fit than an aesthetically classic, sleek and sharp independent pair of shades? So a good place to start with their neutral, functional pieces is Swedish brand, Monokel Eyewear.

Monokel founders, Fredrik Sävenberg and Robert Sandgren, began their careers as professional snowboarders and filmmakers, which explains their early acceptance by the skate, BMX and snowboard community. Spreading across Europe with the storm of Scandinavian classically understated design, the Stockholm based, unisex label design and produce handcrafted sunglasses in premium plant based acetate with lenses from Carl Zeiss Vision. The Monokel brand philosophy stems from the mix of simplicity, functionalism and perfection in details in Nordic mid-century modernism, paired with a curiosity for the human mind and its need for creative expression.

There are seven shapes to choose from (we’re loving the Barstow and the Cleo in particular) in some great colour options. See monokel-eyewear.com.
