Yes, we are in the middle of winter and London is stereotypically wet and grey, but we have been smitten by the quirkiness and individualism of one certain Australian- bred brand, Quay Eyeware. More so than ever, sunglasses have become a must have fashion accessory and Quay Eyeware aim to provide a healthy selection of daring frames and striking colours to cater for all kinds of personalities. From crazy cat eyes to bold and blooming prints which frame the face or enhance it, the brand has been seen on Rita Ora, Gwen Stefani and Lady GaGa. We love the whole collection, obviously, but there are some pairs that have captured our hearts and we can’t wait to grab a few  for when we next see summer sun.  For vivacious girls there is the “Charlie” pair with its cute colour palette interlaced with a prominent streak of sophistication. “Fleur” is the name given to the pair with a slight edge and cat eye frames adorned with glitter. “Cherish” is the name given to a pair which Janis Joplin would have adored as it has 60s conations with its smooth and almost frameless outline. Our ultimate love would be “Venna”, a clear framed pair that encases two vibrant colours, bright yellow or a soft blue.
