Do you fancy making a statement this winter with your sunglasses? From a sunny day in the city, an après ski stroll in a quaint mountain village or on the beach on a tropical island, this winter embellished sunglasses are big. Big, bold and baroque that is.
The Dolce&Gabbana Fall Winter 2013 collection had one strong, unadulterated theme: Baroque. Building upon the intricate details and opulent designs of the collection, the Sicilian Baroque eyewear is just that: Baroque.
The romantic relief decorations, which recall frescoes, of gilded roses and unfurling foliage, create an opulent effect on the acetate frames. The contrasting texture, colour and materials create a stunning effect. Drawing inspiration from the ‘50s, this model features Sicilian baroque embellishments along the front and temples. These vintage inspired frames with gilded roses come in black, gray, brown, green and caramel in romantic opaline plastic. Gradient lenses and the goldtone, resin-coated Dolce&Gabbana logo on the temples provide a further touch of glamour.
And for those who want to take the baroque with them even indoors, we have a stunning optical version in five different colours: black, ice white, gray, red and caramel, with a romantic opaline finish.
Can’t get enough of baroque? Want a truly luxurious object of desire to fulfil your most gilded dreams? The gold tiara-inspired model features an intricate twine of gilded roses and foliage in pure baroque style that extends all along the pen-finished crystal acetate temples. These ultra sophisticated jewel-glasses with rivets applied and finished by hand are housed in exquisite baroque burgundy velvet packaging.
The Baroque Eyewear collection is available in Dolce&Gabbana boutiques from October 2012.
