Just because the cooler climates are here, that doesn’t mean that your sunglasses won’t make an appearance this season. In fact, sunglasses are still one of the most wearable types of accessories in the autumn and winter months as regardless of the temperature, your eyes still need to be protected from the rays of the sun. Lucky for you, here at Shade Station, we have an incredible array of sunglasses by a wide range of designer brands as we recognise that sunglasses are important not only for functional purposes, but also as a way of defining and conveying your unique personal style, adding character to your look and injecting a polished or creative edge to your ensemble.

The Shade Station sunglasses collection is extremely diverse so you can be assured that you will find the perfect pair of shades to fully compliment your autumn/winter look.

First up, Adidas sunglasses are a prominent part of our collection and are proving incredibly popular with the brand’s selection of sporty, slick, sharp and super trendy sunglasses for men and women. Ranging from oversized retro designs to chic frameless visors and ultra contemporary wraparounds, bold and vibrant colour is a common theme throughout the collection and in true Adidas style, only the highest quality and superior function is equalled with flawless style.

For the essence of Italian chic, Armani sunglasses are the perfect option with sophisticated styling and versatile designs ranging from contemporary oversized aviators to classic and understated but statement wraparounds. Elegant colour is a popular theme including oversized Armani sunglasses with a black to pink fading pattern and brown and bronze tortoiseshell. The Armani eagle logo is typically presented upon the arm hinge and you can be assured that each pair of Armani sunglasses makes the perfect style investment.

Arnette sunglasses are highly popular and the brand is incredibly respected for its sports orientated sunglasses that boast a strong attitude and sleek looks. The styles are typically wraparound but other designs in the mix include on-trend colour inspired oversized aviators such as the High Life style, in addition to more classic and sophisticated aviators including the One Time design. Arnette sunglasses certainly prove that you can creatively fuse stylish looks with superb function and performance.

The ultra glamorous, elegant and bold BVLAGRI has some wonderful new styles for autumn/winter that are highly reflective of the luxurious essence of the brand. Featuring aesthetic elements such as elaborately and beautifully decorated hinge detailing and exquisitely oversized frames such as the new BV8070B, colour is also a strong feature within the BVLGARI sunglasses collection.
