Lateral protection: a trendy functional detail
If you’ve been following our blog, you will know by now that during the last weeks we’ve been writing about some glasses that have one thing in common: lateral protection. It’s the case of Porsche Design Sidewall P8591, Vuarnet Glacier, Cébé Lhotse, or Thom Browne TB804. So, we started wondering… Is this a new major fashion trend? It seems so!
Although the origins of the sidewall windows —or leather details or side mesh visors— was the aim to get the best performance in difficult weather conditions, these little pieces have become a must for all hipsters looking for their signature sunglasses. Obviously, it’s difficult not to love a pair of shades that offer the best protection against wind and lateral glare, but… let’s be honest, these sunnies are so cool that you want to wear them even if you haven’t been on the mountain since you were twelve!
So, since we really care about you and we want you to look awesome this season, we’ve prepared a wide array of this kind of sunglasses to blow your mind with. Whether you’re an expert climber or a professional cool hunter, you won’t be able to resist their appeal. And you know it!
