Our five fave frames right now: The latest shades for this never ending Kiwi summer

This summer sun is showing no sign of disappearing anytime soon - even Auckland is getting all muddled up and staying sunny for entire afternoons! That aside, who has ever complained of owning too many pairs of sunglasses? We've noticed our crew wearing some seriously sweet shades lately, so thought we'd compile a little list of our favourite frames. Check them out below, including links of where you can get your hands on them.

1. Stolen Girlfriends Club 'Last Resort' in Crystal Olive 

We love the ‘Last Resort’ by Stolen Girlfriends Club because they have a unique handcrafted acetate frame, complete with the classic Stolen Girlfriend’s teardrop and high quality UV-400 polycarbonate lenses with 100% UV protection.

3. Moscot Zev 'Tortoise & Gold G15' 

Inspired by the British Public Health Services ‘Poor Boy’ Spectacles of the '60s, the ZEV is named for Grandpa Sol’s cousin, and neighborhood lawyer, Zeyfer Braunstein (or Zev for short). If you’re dapper and/or British, these glasses are a must. Click here to purchase for $429.00.  MOSCOT ZEV - TORT GOLD

4. Moscot Lemtosh 'Ruby' Limited Edition 

The Moscot Lemtosh was re-released in ruby and sapphire, exclusively to Dova St Market in London, but is now available at Black Box Boutique. This rounder, nerdier number has served as the calling card for generations of creative, thoughtful, free-spirited intellectuals and artistés — from Buddy Holly to Truman Capote to Johnny Depp. And anything that’s good enough for Depp is good enough for us.

5. Garrett Leight 'Angelus' in Smoke Drift 

The Angelus frame was inspired by Hollywood icons and named after a street in Venice - so it’s already pretty damn cool. Add it's cured cellulose acetate frame with the stylish rectangular shape and you’ve got yourself a winner, ladies and gentlemen. Oh yeah, it’s unisex, too. Click here to purchase by$359.00.
