Shades of style by Mont Blanc
Upgrade all of your outfits with the ultimate accessory – sunglasses from Mont Blanc. From iconic Wayfarers to modern square shapes, the brand designs classically cool shades. Not only do they look good, they also do good, as they’re fitted with UV filtering lenses to protect your eyes.
Step up your look with the icons
Why mess with a classic? Mont Blanc wouldn't think of doing this. That's why its sunglasses retain all the design features that make them fashion icons. Aviators have been a firm favourite since the '70s. Today, they bring subtle retro flair to any look, while remaining relevant and revered in the world of contemporary fashion.
Wayfarers are in the same league. They’re ideal if you want a preppy look for your commute, or for a weekend festival (when they’re also essential for up-all-night eyes). Look out for styles with an acetate bridge and thin wired frames to amp up the '90s throw-back vibe. Wear with as much denim as you can manage.
Mont Blanc has put its own spin on some of the icons. Aviator shades with slightly squared lenses add a contemporary touch. Smaller frames are great updaters, too. Wear them with tailoring, jeans, whatever – they really are that versatile.
Suits hue: the tinted lenses
Not enough colour in your life? Try tinted lenses to really change how you see things. Mont Blanc designs glasses with traditionally dark lenses for those who prefer to stick to a classic style, but the brand has also thrown fresh tones into the mix with lenses in cool hues. These are just as versatile as your regular sunnies, so you can wear them at that wedding with your three-piece suit, or at the weekend with a polo and chinos.
Did you know this seriously stylish German brand started life manufacturing designer fountain pens in 1906? Mont Blanc has since moved into premium accessories and now makes luxury goods ranging from jewellery to smartwatches – oh, and sunnies of course.
Choose your colour
Mont Blanc sunglasses frames come in a spectrum of shades to suit every wardrobe. Tortoiseshell is an instant classic. Opt for the pattern in deep tones for a vintage vibe. For a modern style, pick up a bright yellow pair. Team with black jeans, a simple T-shirt and a leather jacket for a casual yet put-together look.
Metallic frames are an obvious choice when it comes to selecting your sunnies, but Mont Blanc’s are never ordinary. Silver shades always give you polish, whether you're making your way to work or out for a brunch. For a guaranteed luxe look go for gold.
Black acetate frames work with whatever you wrestle out of your wardrobe. Choose chunky frames for a statement style or a pair that blends metal and acetate for a subtle finish. The playful designs of the brand's opaque frames work best with a weekend outfit or printed swim shorts and a tee by the pool.
Sun protection meets style
All Mont Blanc sunglasses are fitted with lenses that block out potentially harmful UV rays. Its range runs from shades offering high protection from strong sunlight to pieces with lower UV filters for days with a gentler light.
Some styles are upgraded with polarised lenses, which work like regular lenses but minimise glare – ideal for super-bright days. They also help to filter light reflected off water. If you're a fan of outdoor sports, these are for you.
