It’s the same problem each summer. I have nothing to wear, I need an entirely new wardrobe and an essential part of that is the perfect pair of sunglasses. With a whole 3 seasons in between I can’t get myself to muster up the same level of excitement for the stuff I wore the previous year and so I often spend a considerable amount of time in the first part of the year looking for the ideal summer outfit.
A pair of good shades can make or break a look like nothing else, will make you look cooler, more interesting and – oh joy! – protect your eyes in the process. Every year I give myself a budget to invest in a nice pair of sunnies, but surprisingly enough it’s often hard to find anything decent and original for less than €250. Too much!
I was all the more pleased to learn about Kapten & Son recently, a German Start-Up which is known for their gorgeous watches and who recently launched a new product category – you guessed it, sunglasses. Their shades are not just stylish and easy on the eye (pun intended), they’re also pretty affordable at an average cost of €100. I instantly had my favorite picked out – the Maui Matt Tortoise model with black lenses…
It’s so light that I barely notice it on my face and the quality of the lens is so high, that I never have to take them off to spot something in more detail, it’s just an all around great pair of sunglasses!
And it doesn’t hurt that they’re also super fashionable. Definitely my favorite accessory for summer 2016.
