The Burberry Eyewear Spring/Summer 2014 Collection is Trench-Inspired

SS14 Burberry Eyewear

The Burberry trench coat can now be worn even on the hottest summer days. The sunglasses and optical frames from the Burberry Eyewear Spring/Summer 2014 Collection are inspired by the luxury brand’s iconic trench coat.

Designed in Britain and hand-made in Italy, the eyewear collection emulates the same elements and features of the trench coat’s signature details. Leather-wrapped temple tips with tonal stitching are your sunnies’ version of the trench coat’s distinctive leather-clad buckle; the nose pads with sleek metal supports follow the coat’s metal hook-and-eye fastening; and the classic Burberry check that lines the coats also adorns the eyewear’s bespoke nose pads and its inner and outer temples.

Echoing the Burberry palette, the collection’s colours consist of warm honey and gold, polished stone and silver and classic black and tortoise – decorating a rich blend of materials ranging from acetate and smooth leather, to metal and enamel.

There are six sunglasses styles and three optical styles to choose from. All have scratch-resistant lenses that guarantee 100% UV protection.

Who knew the trenches could be the new summer staple?
