Shades of NYC

I was in New York last week and at last got to visit Opening Ceremony!!
After what seems like a lifetime of drooling over products and collaborations by the downtown Manhattan boutique in magazines and online, I finally was able to explore the three dolls-house-like floors of retail space, showroom, gallery and bookshop as if it were playtime!

Bringing together world-wide talented designers and artists - emerging and established, Opening Ceremony buys stock through identifying renowned designers that epitomise the country of origin, emerging designers and unique vintage products to exhibit and sell.

I certainly was not disappointed with the vast collection of sunglasses on offer. Below are my favourites (and yes I do have a penchant for rounds!)...

Chloe Sevigny peek-a-boo round lenses were great fun and very flattering.

Barton Perreira heavily contrasted tortoiseshell acetate with classic green lenses gave this contemporary round a vintage twist.
