If you’ve been following this year’s Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, it won’t have escaped your attention that many Olympic competitors have taken visual precautions against the sun, snow and ice. Be it wraparound sunglasses or goggles, serious winter sports athletes acknowledge the dangers of competing without eye protection and will go to great lengths to ensure they are protected from any harm.
Olympic disciplines such as speed skating, cross-country skiing and snowboarding require athletes to travel at enormous speeds, during which they are very vulnerable to the elements and accidents. Wearing sunglasses or goggles designed for sport by a reputable brand like Oakley, reduces their chances of any eye injuries and can also enhance their performance.
Oakley Goggles is a brand that is seen a lot on the slopes and also at Vancouver 2010. Oakley have a history of eyewear innovation for sports and their research, technology and design prowess is second to none. Professional athletes recognise the quality and the power of the Oakley brand and for this reason they entrust the protection of their eyes to them.
For snowboarders goggles are an essential piece of kit and Oakley goggles provide comfort, clarity of vision, anti-fog lenses and are designed to fit snugly when worn with a helmet. Wearing Oakley goggles can prevent arctic burn and will protect your vision from the brilliance of the snow.
Some people prefer Oakley Sunglasses for winter sports and speed skaters in particular, always wear a pair of wraparound sunglasses when competing. There are a number of Oakley styles that cater specifically for sportsmen and when choosing your Oakley’s your decision will be informed by what you require from your sunglasses. For instance you may need transition lenses, the ability to change lenses, a larger frame, or a particularly light frame. Whatever your requirements Oakley will have it covered.
Rather than follow the countries medal tallies this Olympics why not count how many athletes wearing Oakley’s mount the podium. We bet Oakley is the overall winner at Vancouver 2010!

The fashion label DSquared was founded in 1991 by Canadian identical twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten. The brothers decided that they wanted to relocate to an area which was more vibrant, fashion orientated and inspirational and therefore relocated to Milan to work on their designs and launch the brand. They showcased their men’s collection in 1994 which was very successful and in 2003, they felt confident that the DSquared style could transcend into women’s fashion and launched a women’s collection and also a men’s underwear collection. DSquared Eyewear is a new range launched in 2009 which comprises of men’s, ladies and unisex style sunglasses. Like the other collections, the style is very much bold and statement and designed to be noticed and worn with attitude.
DSquared is renowned for its highly energetic and impactful fashion shows that convey energy, innovation and sex appeal which is a general theme of the brand as a whole. A runway show in 2005 for example, ended with pop singer Christina Aguilera stripping male models of their clothes and in September 2007, the DSquared fashion show in Milan featured R&B singer Rihanna elaborately entering the stage in an American muscle car which was then followed by a runway walk presenting the collection. The DSquared catwalk shows are always the talk of Fashion Week and these are designers who dare to be bold and are always striving to create the next step in fashion as opposed to following.
DSquared sunglasses take much inspiration from the 1970s hip-hop culture and can therefore be described as very retro in appearance. Most of the designs are oversized but the brand experiments with different variations of the oversized look to create a completely different dynamic for each style. DSquared uses elements such as colour, shape and theme which ultimately makes one oversized style completely different from the next. One distinctive design choice which is evident in most of the sunglasses is the use of contrasting colours. Some of the designs feature a strong colour at the top half of the frame for example and a contrasting or transparent colour on the lower section. A selection of the men’s frames also vary between softer edge frames and in direct contrast, frames that incorporate sharp angles for a defined and statement look.
The DSquared sunglasses for ladies include dramatically oversized frames that are perfect for a high fashion look with angular and wide frames and big rounded lenses, which definitely adds a strong sense of glamour. Some are also slightly more sports orientated and incorporate more of a wraparound style but with the outside edges angled outwards to keep the look chic and sophisticated. The colours tend to be warm with the use of autumnal tones such as red and deep brown as well as brown and bronze tortoiseshell patterns. Knowing that classic black is a staple and highly versatile colour that never goes out of fashion, many of the sunglasses also feature black frames.
DSquared is a brand that coveys self confidence and is geared towards those who like to make a bold style statement and revel in the theme of exaggeration and drama. Celebrity fans of the DSquared brand include Naomi Campbell, Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Simpson, all of whom are renowned for their diva-esque style and personality!
DSquared is definitely the brand to be wearing into 2010!

An amazing pair of sunglasses can make an incredible fashion statement and the ultimate classic label which depicts style, sophistication and timeless appeal is none other than Chanel.
Founded in 1914, by the originally stylish Coco Chanel, the designer primarily started the label having opened two small boutiques in France. As time went on, the Chanel name became synonymous with style and quality and the brand brought us such fashion classics as the little black dress, the quilted handbag, the Chanel suit, and the famous line of perfumes. Before her immense success, Coco Chanel was considered rebellious with her sense of fashion but her label has become possibly the most sought after in the world.
Chanel products now include clothing, fragrances, accessories, make up and of course, sunglasses. In 1999, in partnership with Italian eyewear producer Luxottica, the House of Chanel introduced its first line of sunglasses despite Coco Chanel passing away twenty-eight years previous. Her influence on style and fashion remains one of the most prominent and heavily inspired by her own creations, Karl Lagerfeld of Fendi (who is now the Creative Director of Chanel) decided to launch a line of Chanel sunglasses which first became largely popular after been seen on the ladies Sex and the City.
One of the most attractive factors of Chanel sunglasses (aside from the beautiful designs!) is that they allow you to enjoy a part of the label at a smaller price – many of Chanel’s products are priced way out of the league of the majority of consumers, and therefore the glamorous sunglasses allow you to enjoy the glamour of Chanel and become part of the brand.
Over the years, Chanel has designed a large range of sunglasses but the brand likes to keep its styles typically oversized, classic and dramatic. These elements are synonymous with the Chanel brand in general and it is what makes the products distinctive and unique. The CH5076H Chanel sunglasses for example are oversized with thick translucent brown lenses and definitely inject an element of drama and Chanel glamour into your look. For something a little classic, the CH5149B sunglasses with oversized black frames are perfect and the jet black quilted patterned arms make these sunglasses incredibly Chanel. The Chanel quilted bag is one of the most sought after and desired accessory in the world and these sunglasses incorporate the style. For something even more overstated, the CH5146 Chanel sunglasses with a black and white crystal patterned frame are the perfect option. All the sunglasses within the Chanel collection feature the classic double C Chanel logo upon the arm hinge and some also incorporate diamante detailing. Whatever the features, Chanel sunglasses are instantly recognisable by the timeless, dramatic style and exceptional high quality.
Oversized sunglasses are a huge style trend and are very much synonymous with the ultimate fashionista! Chanel is very much a trend leader that others try to emulate and the range of sunglasses are trendy and stylish but remain classic and elegant which is ultimately what the brand is all about. Chanel sunglasses will complete and compliment a refined, polite and sophisticated look in true A List style and celebrity fans of the brand who are regularly seen wearing their Chanel sunglasses include Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Nicole Ritchie and of course, American Vogue Editor Anna Wintour.
Coco Chanel once said that luxury was “the necessity where necessity ends”. Even if you are unable to afford other products in the Chanel collection, a pair of the brand’s sunglasses will definitely allow you to experience a little bit of that necessary luxury!
