One of things that I can never leave the house without (at least during the day) is a good pair of sunglasses. As a child, I was told by my doctor to take care of my eyes and not expose them to a lot of sunlight during the hot summer days, because my eyes were sensitive. Ever since then sunglasses became a part of mine, especially the ones with UV filters, and I found some really beautiful looking products from Titan. I liked the designs from Titan’s Spring Summer collection, which are available at Titan Eyeplus stores around the city, as well as on http://eyeplus.titan.co.in . These products are priced between INR 2195 and 4095/- .
I picked a pair of aviators with a rose gold frame, with a gradient lens, and I loved the pink-purple-gold combination. I am a sucker for aviators (I don’t know, is that the Top Gun Effect?), and whenever I am asked to pick a pair I tend to pick them or huge, oversized sunglasses, which threaten to topple off the bridge of my nose. What I liked was the fact that these glasses were very lightweight, and yet, quite sturdy.
I took these glasses last week to the beach, and then to the park the other day, and I wore them pretty much all through the day, and forgot to take them off even after we had walked into a restaurant. I liked the way these didn’t weight down my face, and rather, provided a very interesting frame to my face. I also liked the classic design, reinvented with a little twist. The combination was quite good, and I found myself wearing these quite a lot with both traditional and casual outfits.
After checking out different sunglasses from the brand, I have to say I like the way they have kept the designs simple, and quite easy to wear, with a few quirks here and there that are pretty enhancements. The sunglasses are neither over-the-top nor too basic, and thankfully, most of the collection looks really wearable to me. Also, the use of polarized lenses and flash mirrors add to their uniqueness. Check more of these glasses out at their FB page, or their website.
